The numbers paint an appalling picture: More Singaporeans are being diagnosed with an intestinal condition that puts them at higher risk of colon cancer.

Statistics by several hospitals in Singapore show that inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is on the rise in the last decade.

For example, Singapore General Hospital (SGH) saw close to 600 patients diagnosed with the disease in 2017, a two-fold increase from 2007.

At National University Hospital (NUH), the number has jumped by eight times, from below 50 in 2013 to close to 400 cases in 2018.

Indeed, the colon – which is part of the large intestine and also known as the bowel, is particularly prone to infections. Such inflammations may undermine the colon’s function to reabsorb fluids and process waste products from the body and facilitate waste excretion. This is where a colon doctor in Singapore comes in.

In this post, we’ve gathered all the necessary details to compile a list of the 10 best colon doctor in Singapore to treat your colorectal problems.

The clinic is headed by Dr Francis Seow Choen, who graduated from the National University of Singapore in 1981 and obtained his higher surgical qualifications in 1987.

He subsequently sub-specialized in colorectal surgery in 1989 where he worked with the world-class surgeons of St Marks’ Hospital in London.

At that time, there were no specialized departments of colorectal surgery in this part of the world. Prof Seow returned to Singapore after training intending to turn Singapore into a surgical colorectal powerhouse, which he subsequently did.

His clinic specialises in innovative laparoscopic techniques. Many laparoscopic surgeons use 4 to 5 ports routinely even in simple cases of colorectal resections. Prof Seow has been championing the use of the 3 ports laparoscopic technique.

Most of his patients stay an average of 4 days in the hospital and many are able to go shopping at the end of two weeks. This is remarkable for an operation compared to the procedures in the old days which required at least 2-3 months recovery time.
