Shawndeep S. Tung, MD, was born and raised in Southern California, but ventured overseas to complete his medical education in Poland. In Texas, Dr. Tung completed a postdoctoral fellowship in the department of Stem Cell Transplantation and Cellular Therapy at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. He went on to complete a General Surgery residency at Nassau University Medical Center on New York’s long Island and then decided to focus on a career in breast oncology. His fellowship in Breast Surgical Oncology was at MedStar Georgetown University Hospital and MedStar Washington Hospital Center in Washington DC.
After losing both of my maternal aunts to breast cancer, I made a commitment to my mother that I would use my training to help as many women as possible avoid a similar fate.
Dr. Tung is committed to empowering his patients with informative knowledge of their diagnosis and helping them through their cancer journey. He cherishes the opportunity to help his patients on the road to recovery and offers a personal approach to care that considers the mental toll a cancer diagnosis can have on patients. His goal is for his patients to leave his office in a better state mentally than when they first walked in, while also caring for their physical health.
Outside of medicine, Dr. Tung enjoys snowboarding, playing chess, golfing, playing the piano, traveling, and photography. He is a family man who absolutely adores his wife and son. Additionally, he speaks conversational Punjabi and Hungarian.
