B S Ooi Colorectal, General & Laparoscopic Surgery Centre is a specialist clinic located in the famous Mount Elizabeth Medical Centre along Orchard Road in Singapore that provides specialised care and management of colorectal and general surgical diseases. The mission of the centre is to provide “state-of-the-art” cutting edge technology and care for patients with digestive diseases, in line with our motto: “All For Patients, For All Patients, For Patients' All”.
Our centre provides a comprehensive range of services for colorectal and other digestive diseases. These include endoscopy (Gastroscopy, Sigmoidoscopy, Colonoscopy) for polyps and cancers screening and surveillance, surgery for anorectal diseases such as haemorrhoids (Stapled Haemorrhoidectomy or Longo Technique and Transanal Haemorrhoidal Dearterialization), fistulas, fissures, sphincter injuries, as well assurgery for inflammatory bowel diseases (ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease) and general surgical problems such as gallstones disease, inguinal hernias, small bowel obstruction and acute abdomen.
In the modern era of Minimally Invasive Surgery, it is the aim of our Medical Director and Senior Consultant Surgeon, Dr Ooi Boon Swee, to give patients the best surgical options. Dr Ooi’s passion has always been in minimally invasive surgery and providing patients with the best possible outcomes. Laparoscopic colectomy for colorectal cancers allows patients to recover faster with a shorter scar and hospital stay. More importantly, patients are able to return to normal daily activities earlier and for those who require adjuvant chemotherapy, to start treatment earlier, thereby reducing the risk of tumour dissemination and metastases. Dr Ooi also performs Robotic-Assisted surgery and this is particularly useful during surgery in the deep pelvis and has the potential of preserving pelvic nerve plexus for improved postoperative urinary, sexual and anorectal functions.
Our centre is located at Mount Elizabeth Hospital, a 357-bed private tertiary acute care hospital and supported with the full range of radiological, laboratory and pathology services. Mount Elizabeth Hospital has an established reputation in Asia in private healthcare. It is well-known for the depth of expertise of its specialists, quality care of its nurses and staff, and state-of-the-art technology. The hospital is accredited with the Joint Commission International (JCI) and is the first private hospital in Asia to win the Asian Management Award for exceptional people development and management.
