Clinical Interests

With his interest in gastrointestinal and hepatobiliary-pancreatic (GI-HPB) surgery and the treatment of cancer, Dr Tan joined the department of surgical oncology at the National Cancer Centre in 2003 as a consultant.

Dr Tan’s interest in the management of peritoneal surface malignancies was part of his effort in leading a multidisciplinary team from NCC to Washington Cancer Institute to adopt the techniques and protocols of peritonectomy and HIPEC (Sugarbaker procedure) from Dr Paul Sugarbaker in 2009.

Academic Contributions

During his surgical career, Dr Tan has been a strong proponent of academic surgery having published over 90 articles in leading surgical journals including the highest rated surgical journal the ‘Annals of Surgery’ as lead and corresponding author on a wide range of topics in surgical diseases.

He was also examiner of the Royal college of Edinburgh and Yong Loo Lin School of medicine.

Founding of FeM Surgery

Dr Tan left for private practice in May 2010 to pursue a more holistic and patient centric approach to surgical care and also to have a better work life balance for his family.

He continues to contribute to public care as an active visiting consultant at the national cancer centre.

In 2012, he embarked on an exciting new venture as founder and chief surgeon of a new surgical group practice called ‘FeM Surgery’ at Parkway Hospitals. This is a multidisciplinary practice where his philosophy of team based approach comprising medical and allied health professionals for the best patient care will be adopted.

Dr Tan currently leads the Gallstone Liver Centre @ FeM and the Cancer Surgery & Peritonectomy Centre @ FeM where patients with cancer and gallstones, liver and gastrointestinal diseases can obtain the best possible care.
