Prior to this, Dr Wong practiced for more than 15 years at the renowned Department of Colorectal Surgery at Singapore General Hospital, where he pursued his interests in minimally-invasive (robotic and laparoscopic) colorectal cancer surgery, endoscopy (gastroscopy and colonoscopy) and functional disorders (piles, constipation and incontinence).
