About A/Prof Fong

A/Prof Fong was Associate Professor at the National University of Singapore and Head of Benign Gynaecology at NUH for nearly 10 years before he moved into private practice. He was President of the Obstetrical and Gynaecological Society of Singapore from 2011- 2013 and Chair of the Asia & Oceania Federation of Obstetrics and Gynaecology-Gynaecological Endoscopy Committee from 2011-2015. He became President of the 3rd Congress of Endometriosis and Uterine Disorders in 2017, and currently serves on the Board of the Asian Society of Endometriosis and Adenomyosis.

Since 2004, A/Prof Fong has been the lead-surgeon in laparoscopic surgery in NUH. Under his leadership, many firsts were achieved in the region. In 2008, he performed the first robotic surgery in NUH and the team went on to perform the first robotic surgery for gynaecological cancer in the region. In 2009, A/Prof Fong was the first to perform single incision surgery in the region and then the first multidisciplinary single incision surgery in the region. In a breakthrough in 2014, A/Prof Fong led the team in transplanting ovarian tissue back into a patient with ovarian failure, which led to Asia’s first baby conceived naturally from implanted ovarian tissue.

Throughout his tenure, he strived to push for better health care outcomes for women and to empower his patients with more choices
and options. He developed the Endometriosis Centre concept that catered to complex endometriosis and chronic pelvic pain, integrating urological, colorectal, pain management as well as women’s emotional health services in caring for women with endometriosis. He then founded the Endometriosis Awareness Campaign in 2012, a yearly activity to empower women with more knowledge, information, treatment choices and support to combat endometriosis. Following which, he started research in uterine fibroids and was especially concerned about the issue of ovarian reserve for women going for surgery.

He is currently also a visiting consultant to NUH and an adjunct Associate Professor at the National University of Singapore.
