Eric Chonhun King, M.D.
Vascular and Interventional Radiology
- Health Sciences Assistant Clinical Professor
Philosophy of Care
I grew up in Apple's home town of Cupertino and saw how technology can change lives. As a physician, I want to use proven technology to help my patients spend less time in the hospital and more time with loved ones. My role is to explain your options, customize your treatment, and guide you through your medical journey from our first consultation in clinic to each follow up appointment.
Dr. King is a vascular & interventional radiologist specializing in truly minimally invasive procedures using a pinhole through the skin. Large surgical incisions are avoided by using high-tech imaging to guide thin instruments beneath the skin. The benefits include less recovery time, fewer complications, and a faster return home.
His clinical interests are in improving wound healing in patients with peripheral arterial disease; improving limb swelling in patients with deep venous disease; and improving chronic pelvic pain in patients with uterine fibroids. He is also passionate about relieving shortness of breath in patients hospitalized with pulmonary embolism.
Dr. King's academic interests are in improving patient outcomes by working in quality improvement and patient safety. He also has a passion for medical education due to his amazing mentors during his training.
