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.

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.
