Our specialty clinic offers expertise in managing the full spectrum of colon, rectum and anal problems, including the use of the latest minimally invasive techniques for keyhole laparoscopic colorectal surgery.
Common anal conditions like hemorrhoids (piles), anal fistula, anal fissure afflict a large number of people. Thankfully, there have been many advances in the medical science so that treatment is not only safe but much more comfortable for patients suffering from these conditions. We offer expert assessment and the latest options to cure your condition and minimise the postoperative pain.
Colorectal Cancer has become the most common cancer in Singapore and the Health Promotion Board has recommended routine screening of asymptomatic individuals from the age of 50. Many symptoms of Colorectal Cancer – such as constipation, diarrhea, bleeding in the stool, abdominal discomfort or bloating – overlap with other conditions, so people fail to recognise the danger or give them the attention they deserve. Blood tests like CEA and testing the feces for traces of blood can detect some of the cases of cancer but are inaccurate and may provide a false sense of security.
Colonoscopy is the best screening test for Colorectal Cancer, as is not only safe and accurate, but also allows us to remove polyps and prevent the development of cancer. One advantage is that most of the cost of colonoscopy testing is claimable from your Medisave account. Please contact us for an appointment today.
