I am the director of the Digestive Centre, Mount Elizabeth Hospital. If you are suffering from acid reflux, abdominal pain, cancer, obesity or hernia, you have come to the right place.
We provide comprehensive diagnosis based on detailed symptom history, nutrition and lifestyle evaluation. Treatment options include meal planning and dietary guidance, medications, endoscopy and keyhole surgical interventions.
Our signature programmes include non-invasive weight loss treatments such as Saxenda therapy, Elipse balloon and Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty.
If you have completed your medical workup, you may be eligible for the fast-track bariatric/metabolic surgery pathway. We are also proud to offer state-of-the-art procedures for acid reflux including Linx magnetic sphincter augmentation, Barrx radio-frequency ablation and laparoscopic hiatal hernia repair.
Because we do a thorough work-up, your treatments can often be done as outpatient or day surgery.

My sister is severely overweight at close to 100kgs at 168cm. She used to be only 50+kg but gained weight because of work stress as she eats to cope. She has a gym membership but can’t find time to go. She often tells she feels breathless and lethargic but she has no idea how to start losing weight. Would you recommend weight loss surgery for someone like her? Are there any weight loss programmes she can go on?
Hi doctor, is it true that eating preserved foods in high quantities like kimchi etc will cause us to have a higher risk of stomach cancer?
My father is 77 years old and he was diagnosed with a stomach ulcer 1.5 years ago. He does not seem to be getting better. I am now worried about stomach cancer, because I read online that the symptoms are similar. Would you recommend another endoscopy or any other examination considering it’s been 1.5 years?
Hi Doctor. I am a 27 year old female. I’ve been trying various diets since 6 months ago. However, these past two weeks I have been feeling nausea and heartburn. I have stopped dieting and started eating normally again but the nausea persists and sometimes it makes me vomit. Have I hurt my stomach with the constant diet changes?
