The Department of Urology at Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) was first formed as a subspecialty service within the Department of General Surgery in 1993, and eventually matured into its own Department in 2007 under the inaugural headship of Associate Professor Chia Sing Joo.
Since then, we have rapidly expanded our capabilities to become a one-stop centre providing a comprehensive range of urological subspecialty services. Today, the Department of Urology is headed by Adjunct Associate Professor Chong Yew Lam, and comprises 8 consultants and 2 associate consultants. We pride ourselves on becoming the department of choice for urological patient care and for staff to work in, through delivering excellent clinical care for our patients. This has been the result of having our specialists complete formal subspecialty training at best centres in the United States, United Kingdom and Australia, as well as harnessing the best available technologies in the market to deliver cost-effective treatment to our patients with a gentle, caring touch.
