Soon Jung, MD
Pain Management Physician
Dr. Jung is originally from the New York metro area. He graduated from SUNY Binghamton University before completing his medical education at State University of New York Upstate Medical University in 2010.
He began his medical career as a neurosurgical resident at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School in Newark, NJ. After completing multiple years of training, Dr. Jung realized that unfortunately many patients continued to have chronic pain despite surgery, and during his time there he became exposed to chronic pain management under the tutelage of Dr. Andrew Kaufman. After seeing the positive and life changing impact one could have from helping alleviate chronic pain, a decision was made to pursue a career in pain management. Therefore, he made a career move and began his anesthesia training at the Westchester Medical Center. Upon completion of his residency, he began his pain management fellowship training at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. After completing fellowship in 2016 he became an attending physician at the Lehigh Valley Medical Center in Allentown, PA. While there he was in charge of the neuromodulation program as well as the intrathecal pump program. With the use of intrathecal drug delivery, Dr Jung was able to get patients off oral opioids while continuing to treat patients who required opioids in a safe controlled manner that was physician controlled.
Dr. Jung joined SEPA Pain and Spine in 2021. He is double board certified in Anesthesia as well as Pain Management. He brings with him a unique skill set not found in most pain management physicians because of his neurosurgical background. He believes that every patient’s pain is unique and that the treatment plans should be catered to the patient’s needs. He brings with him experience and knowledge in all areas of pain management including medication management as well as minimally invasive procedures designed to treat chronic pain.
Dr. Jung now resides in the Blue Bell area and is married with 3 young children. He spends his free time combing the country for the newest and latest ways he can treat and help his patients. He feels blessed that he can truly say that for him his work is his hobby.
