Professional Profile:

Dr Kan is an experienced senior consultant surgeon with a focus on minimally invasive/keyhole surgery (MIS). He obtained his medical degree and Fellowships of the Royal College of Surgeons in the United Kingdom and trained at Addenbrookes University Hospital in Cambridge. With over 25 years of experience, he has expertise in Upper Gastrointestinal, Bariatric, Surgical Oncology, and General Surgery.

Dr Kan’s scope of practice is broad, ranging from simple conditions such as skin lumps and haemorrhoids to complex keyhole surgery for colon, oesophageal, stomach, pancreas, and liver cancers. He uses the keyhole approach to surgery for gastric and oesophageal cancer, resulting in shorter hospital stays, faster recovery, and fewer complications.

In addition to his surgical practice, Dr Kan provides early screening with endoscopy (gastroscopy and colonoscopy) to detect early changes before malignancy occurs. He also has a special interest in bariatric surgery for overweight and obese patients, which is now established as a treatment option for those who are diabetic and obese.

Dr Kan is a sought-after trainer on surgical workshops around the region and has presented numerous talks at medical conferences throughout the world. He is an instructor for the Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) course and an appointed reviewer for several medical journals, including the Australian & New Zealand Journal of Surgery, British Journal of Surgery, and Singapore Medical Journal.
