Some people may become the expert of one field in a lifetime. Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong is not that person.

A physician, surgeon and scientist, Dr. Soon-Shiong has pioneered treatments for both diabetes and cancer, published over 100 scientific papers, and over 95 issued patents on groundbreaking advancements across myriad fields.

On Wednesday, March 12th, Dr. Soon-Shiong will share what he’s up to next with Larry King on Ora.tv and Hulu’s “Larry King Now.”

WATCH CLIP: http://on.ora.tv/NODbNy

Some progressive and innovative inventions from Soon-Shiong include:

  • Personalized earphones: earphone headsets that tune to the human ear are available now; proceeds go to helping the 700 million people suffering from hearing loss.
  • His Buffett Pledge: as part of his pledge to give at least half of his fortune to charitable causes, for every two personalized earphone sets sold, Dr. Soon-Shiong will donate a hearing aid to a person in need. These hearing aids he also invented, and they tune to the human ear through a simple smartphone app.
  • Cell phone app that allows the blind to see: what if your cell phone could scan a room and tell you what’s in it – not just that you’re holding a book, but the name, title, author, even the color of the book? This cell phone app for the blind does just that and more – it also differentiates denominations of money.
  • The first universal patient database for doctors: the first software program to streamline the medical field. From primary care to an emergency room doctors can keep track of patient medical history (such as x-rays) and access that information regardless if the person is an existing or first-time patient.
  • Fighting Cancer: Soon-Shiong developed a drug to not only fight cancer, but to rid cancer from the body. He is working to bring cancer to a “standstill” and make it a “survivable feature of the human condition.”

During his interview with Larry King, Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong also shares his journey on overcoming South African apartheid to becoming the richest man in LA and part owner of the NBA Lakers.

Larry King referenced to Dr. Soon-Shiong’s ingenuity to that of Stephen Hawking’s brilliance. He found the doctor’s inventions to be “remarkable” and made reference to the many awards the doctor has received for his research including the Healthcare Champion of the Year Award.
