Professional Profile:

Dr Lim has special interests in nose and sinus diseases, and allergies, with a subspecialty focus on rhinology and sinonasal allergy. With more than 18 years of clinical practice, he is also well-versed in managing both adult and children ENT problems such as ear infections, hearing loss, voice disorders, snoring and sleep disorders, salivary gland disorders and thyroid swelling.

Dr Lim was the first surgeon to be awarded a Ministry of Health Clinical Rhinology Fellowship award to Europe, where he trained under world- renowned rhinologist Professor Wytske Fokkens and endoscopic skull base surgeon Professor Christos Georgalas, to expand Singapore’s repertoire in the management of rhinology, endoscopic skull base surgery and sinonasal allergy. Upon his return, he introduced the concept of local allergic rhinitis, use of 5 Fluorouracil and en-bloc resection in the management of sinonasal inverted papilloma, to the local ENT fraternity.

With  an  interest  in  inverted  papilloma,  nasal  polyposis,  chronic rhinosinusitis and allergic rhinitis, Dr Lim has published in local and international journals, and has collaborated with several international centres like Beijing Tongren Hospital to improve the management of chronic rhinosinusitis.

Dr Lim received a Clinician-Investigator Award for his work on allergic rhinitis at the 2011 Singapore Health & Biomedical Congress. He was the earliest doctor to use 5-Fluorouracil in the management of sinonasal inverted papilloma.
