Endoscopic And laparoscopic surgeons

Yuen Ng Teng Fong General Hospital

Dr Soon Yuen is ​the Head of the Division of Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery and a Senior Consultant with the Department of General Surgery at JurongHealth Campus, practising at Ng Teng Fong General Hospital and Jurong Medical Centre. He was trained at Charing Cross Westminster Medical School, which is now part of the Imperial Group. He practised in the tertiary regional oesophagogastric and laparoscopic unit at the Royal Surrey County Hospital, Guildford, UK, as a senior consultant surgeon for seven years before he returned to Singapore. Dr Soon has a special interest in complex oesophageal and stomach surgery, for example, stomach and oesophageal cancer and benign upper GI surgery (including reflux, complex recurrent hiatus hernia surgery and oesophageal emergencies). As a general surgeon with expertise in laparoscopic and oesophagogastric surgery, Dr Soon has made contributions to advanced, innovative and modern surgical techniques. He is a pioneer in developing and establishing new techniques in virtually scarless surgery (single port surgery). He has used this virtually scarless technique extensively in hernia repairs and to a lesser extent, in stomach and gallbladder surgery. He has published many papers about this type of surgery. Dr Soon also has a keen interest in teaching and education, and has taught as a laparoscopic trainer and visiting expert in Europe, Middle East, Pakistan and Southeast Asia. He is a regular speaker at many conferences, such as Arab Health, EAES and other international conferences.
