My special interests are in minimally invasive (laparoscopic) and robotic surgery for both cancer and benign bowel disorders. Prior to starting my private practice, I practiced at the Department of Colorectal Surgery at Singapore General Hospital, where I pursued my interests in minimally-invasive (robotic and laparoscopic) colorectal cancer surgery and functional disorders (piles, constipation and incontinence).
I was the longest-serving Director of the SGH Pelvic Floor Disorders Service. In this position, I led a multidisciplinary team of specialists, comprising colorectal surgeons, gynaecologists and urologists to provide holistic care for patients with pelvic floor disorders, including incontinence, chronic constipation and organ prolapse. In 2016, I was appointed Director of the SGH Gastrointestinal Function Unit, where I led a team of gastroenterologists and surgeons to evaluate patients with functional gastrointestinal disorders.
I am well-versed in laparoscopic and robotic surgery for both cancer and benign disorders, proctology (piles, abscess, fistula and fissure), advanced therapeutic endoscopy (gastroscopy and colonoscopy) and functional bowel disorders (constipation and incontinence).
I have worked with colorectal surgeons throughout Europe, USA and Asia, gaining a global perspective in treating patients. I am an opinion leader in the field of minimally invasive (laparoscopic and robotic) colorectal cancer and pelvic floor surgery, having been invited to lecture at numerous international colorectal meetings.
I have also mentored and trained doctors from all across Southeast Asia, including Bangladesh, Myanmar, the Philippines and Vietnam. I am a dedicated educator and was appointed Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Duke-NUS Graduate Medical School and Senior Clinical Lecturer at the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, NUS. I was faculty of the Singhealth General Surgery Residency Programme and have contributed to maintaining high standards in surgical education.
