Dr Adrian Saurajen is a Ear, Nose, and Throat Surgeon at Gleneagles Hospital, Singapore. He sub-specialises in Sleep Medicine and Surgery.

He graduated from the University of Sydney and worked at the Royal North Shore Hospital in Australia before coming back to Singapore. He has post-graduate fellowships in ENT from the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. In addition to that, he is a Fellow of the Academy of Medicine of Singapore. Formerly, he was also an International Fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.

Before his current post with Gleneagles, Dr Saurajen was in charge of the Tan Tock Seng Hospital (National Healthcare Group) Sleep Clinic. Currently, he has visiting rights at Gleneagles Hospital, Parkway East Hospital and Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital.

Dr Saurajen has a formal qualification in Sleep Medicine. He obtained his Masters of Medicine (Sleep Medicine) from the University of Sydney under Professor Colin Sullivan, the inventor of the CPAP machine for Sleep Apnoea. Following that, he had also undertaken a Fellowship in Sleep Medicine and Surgery under Professor Tucker Woodson where he was a Clinical Teacher at Medical College Wisconsin in Milwaukee, USA.

On top of Sleep Medicine, Dr Saurajen’s main interests lie in Pediatric ENT, nasal, sinus, balloon sinuplasty and minimally invasive surgeries to reshape the upper airway for patients with sleep apnoea. His practice also involves complex snoring operations.

Outside of his clinical practice, Dr Saurajen is actively involved in research, forums, and conferences. His work has been published in both local and international medical journals. In addition to that, he has also been invited to collaborate on innovative surgical techniques with other ENTs from around the world.

He has been invited to speak at various ENT-related forums, both locally and globally. In 2009, Dr Saurajen was given the honour of being the plenary speaker for the ASEAN ORL Meeting in Cambodia. Over the past decade, he shared his knowledge at the International Sinus Forum/ENT Summit series in New York and Kuala Lumpur. He was also invited to speak on BBC and the local media for ENT-related issues.

Dr Saurajen was also invited as a judge for the prestigious Yahya Cohen Memorial Lectureship by the College of Surgeons Singapore and was also a reviewer for the Singapore NMRC investigator grants.

Outside of medicine and academia, Dr Saurajen and his wife set up the Zachary Liver Fund from 1999 to 2015 in conjunction with the NUH endowment fund. The fund helps patients who require liver transplants after liver failure. This fund was set up in memory of his firstborn son who was born with liver failure.
