Interventional Radiology is a rapidly changing field on the forefront of minimally invasive techniques for patient care. One of my main interests include the diagnosis and minimally invasive treatment strategies for lung cancer and its sequela.
It is my belief that the patient-physician relationship does not begin and end with the diagnosis and treatment, but should extend beyond this. At NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital / Weill Cornell Medical Center, our Lung Cancer Screening Program strives to both educate those at high risk for lung cancer and in conjunction with a multidisciplinary group of diagnostic and interventional radiologists, pulmonologists, thoracic surgeons, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists, offer the least invasive treatment approaches.

Dr. Pua obtained a B.S. degree in Chemistry from New York University (NYU) and continued at NYU School of Medicine where he was awarded his M.D. degree. He completed three years of surgical residency at New York University Medical Center prior to deciding to pursue a career in Interventional Radiology and subsequently completed a fellowship in Interventional Radiology at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital-Weill Cornell Campus & Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Dr. Pua remained at Cornell to complete his diagnostic radiology residency and was elected to serve as Chief Resident in his final year.
Dr. Pua's clinical expertise is in Interventional Radiology and performs a variety of interventional procedures including, but not limited to: arterial embolizations, stent placements, tumor ablations, biopsies and vascular access. His interests include both pediatric interventions and minimally invasive cancer therapy, with a particular focus on thoracic tumors.
Dr. Pua's research interests are in simulators for medical education as well as thoracic tumor treatments for which he has written both review articles and book chapters.
