Dr Sihoe received his medical training at the University of Cambridge, where he was awarded multiple prizes and received both an Honours degree and a Masters degree for research in Pathology. After working in Scotland and England, he returned to practice Cardiothoracic Surgery in Hong Kong and China, specializing in Minimally Invasive Thoracic Surgery (MITS).

Dr Sihoe is now an internationally recognized advocate of ‘next generation’ MITS techniques – especially uniportal and needlescopic chest surgery. He has authored or co-authored over 150 book chapters, journal articles and conference abstracts, and his work in thoracic surgery and clinical research has won multiple awards – including from the European Society of Thoracic Surgeons (ESTS) and the International Society for Minimally Invasive Cardiothoracic Surgery (ISMICS). Today, he is one of the most widely travelled thoracic surgeons in the world, having been invited to speak and/or perform surgery at surgical conferences and educational events on every continent.
