He was trained under Scott Lim, MD.
Currently, he is actively involved in the management of patient with complex valvular heart disease using percutaneous catheter approach. He also treating patient with congenital heart and pulmonary hypertension on top of treating patient with common cardiac condition. He performed transcatheter valve intervention such as TAVI (transcatheter aortic valve implantation), mitraclip and other intervention for structural heart problem. He has authored or co-authored few papers in peer-reviewed journals and has written book chapters in Structural Intervention and Minimally Invasive Cardiac Surgery textbook.
Dr. Kuntjoro is actively involved in medical education and is a core faculty member of the Cardiology Senior Residency Programme at NUHCS.
