His main interest is in Vascular Surgery and Endovascular treatment of occlusive and aneurysmal diseases.  He was elected Distinguished Fellow and Honorary Member of the Society for Vascular Surgery (SVS), and honorary member of the ANZSVS and Society of Clinical Vascular Surgery; member of the European Society for Vascular Surgery, Executive Board Member and Asian Chapter Secretary of the International Union of Angiology, and National Representative in the International Society for Vascular Surgery (ISVS).  He is currently President of the Asian Society for Vascular Society, and also President of the College of Surgeons of Hong Kong.  He is on the Executive Board of the Chinese Society of Vascular Surgery and the Editorial Board of the Chinese Journal of Vascular Surgery.  He held visiting Professorships in the University of British Columbia, and the Imperial College of Science, Technology and Medicine in London.

Professor Cheng played a key role in the development of Vascular Surgery in Hong Kong, having established a renowned unit and the first non-invasive Vascular Laboratory in Queen Mary Hospital.  He led the development of endovascular intervention of peripheral vascular diseases, and pioneered the development of endovascular aortic stent grafting for aortic aneurysms and dissections in SE Asia.  He has been invited to lectures and hold workshops for advanced endograft techniques in many countries in Asia.

Professor Cheng's research is directed toward aspects of aortic aneurysms and aortic dissection, including pathogenesis, hemodynamics and endovascular treatment of complex aneurysms; as well as in peripheral vascular disease, especially epidemiology, atherogenesis, and carotid stenosis. He has authored over 200 publications in peer-reviewed journals and book chapters in the specialty.
