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 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.

Seow Choen Colorectal Centre 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-specialised 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 specialised departments of colorectal surgery in this part of the world.

Prof Seow returned to Singapore and worked on his goal towards having Singapore be recognised as a surgical colorectal powerhouse.

His clinic specialises in innovative laparoscopic techniques. Whilst many laparoscopic surgeons opt to use four to five ports routinely – even in simple cases of colorectal resections, Prof Seow has been championing the use of the three ports laparoscopic technique.

Post surgery, most of his patients remain in the hospital an average of four days, and many are able to resume non-strenuous activities like grocery shopping after two weeks.

This is remarkable for an operation in comparison to the traditional procedures which usually required at least two to three months of recovery time.

Dr. Lim Jit Fong qualified as a General Surgeon in 2003 and has been specialising as a Consultant in Colorectal Surgery since 2006.

He is an expert in minimally invasive surgery and functional bowel disorders, and has performed hundreds of “keyhole” bowel operations for bowel cancer as well as other bowel diseases.

The clinic treats illnesses such as colonic conditions (like colorectal cancer, diverticular disease and inflammatory bowel disease), perianal conditions (like haemorrhoids, abscess, fistula and fissure) as well as functional bowel disorders (like constipation, obstructed defecation syndrome and faecal incontinence).

Dr. Lim’s expertise in the management of bowel incontinence and constipation led to him being appointed the founding Director of Pelvic Floor Disorder Service of Singapore General Hospital until the time he left SGH in 2011.

He is (at the point of publication) the President of the Society of Colorectal Surgeons.
