Overview

A/Prof Fong started his journey in Medicine when he was awarded the President’s Scholarship to study medicine at the National University of Singapore (NUS). He graduated with the top medal in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and was awarded the Gold Medal in the Master’s Examination in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (NUS). He also achieved the Board of Examiner’s Prize (Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists) and a letter of commendation from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists leading to his postgraduate degrees.

In 2002, A/Prof Fong won a Fellowship programme in Minimally Invasive Gynaecologic Surgery and was the lead-surgeon in laparoscopic surgery in NUH for more than 10 years. Under his leadership, many firsts were achieved in the region. In 2008, he performed the first robotic surgery in NUH and the team went on to perform the first robotic surgery for gynaecological cancer in the region. In 2009, A/Prof Fong was the first to perform single incision surgery in the region and later went on to perform the first multidisciplinary single incision surgery in the region. In a breakthrough in 2014, A/Prof Fong led the team in transplanting ovarian tissue back into a patient with ovarian failure, which led to Asia’s first baby conceived naturally from implanted ovarian tissue.

His expertise and key interests are in the treatment of complex gynaecological problems such as stage 3/4 endometriosis, difficult fibroids and ovarian cysts, congenital genital tract abnormalities, as well as fertility. His other areas of interest include pelvic floor reconstruction and the use of microsurgical techniques for tubal re-anastomosis or fertility enhancing surgery.

Fluent in English, Mandarin, Bahasa, Cantonese, and Hokkien, A/Prof Fong sees local and international patients from all walks of life.

Ask Dr Fong Yoke Fai: Menstrual Problems

Many women experience pain during their periods. Most of the pain is a result of the process of the uterus contracting to release the menstrual blood. 

However, if the pain you experience begins before the onset of bleeding and interferes with your daily activities, there may be an underlying condition other than the typical uterine cramping. Some of these symptoms might be related to endometriosis, fibroids, an ovarian cyst, which may make periods especially painful.

Join Dr Fong Yoke Fai as he hosts a QnA session where he answers all your questions on menstrual problems.

Hi, Yeast is probably present in our body (e.g. in the gut) from a baby onwards.It normally co-exists with other bacteria (which is beneficial for our body) and does not create any problems unless we become immune deficient. For women, it probably starts to reside in the vagi...

Hi, Fibroids are smooth muscle tumours that arise from the muscle wall of the uterus - as such, they can generally be placed at 3 different sites: serosal (outer layer of the uterus), intramural (middle layer), or submucosal (inner layer). Serosal fibroids can grow to a very ...

Hi, The most direct answer to your question will be: yes, you can be potentially suitable for a laparoscopic myomectomy. However, there are some factors to consider: 1. Besides size, the next most important factor will be site, meaning where is the fibroid sited in the uter...

Hi, Fibroids are basically smooth muscle tumours that grow from the muscle wall of the uterus. They do not serve any function but instead may adversely affect the physical and reproductive well being of the female patient, depending on the size, depth, number and location of the...

Hi, you must be worried that the yeast might go into the uterus and cause an infection or even go into the Fallopian tubes. However, do not worry! Yeast infection, even recurrent, has not been known or been associated with infertility. Yeast or candida is a fungal organism that ...

Absolutely no worries. The uterus especially in the first 3 months of pregnancy is protected by your pelvis which is formed from bony structures. So, tight clothes or not, the pelvis and the organs it contains maintain their form and shape!

While having some form of cramps is not unusual, there are a few symptoms that might trigger some alarm for the gynaecologist: 1. There is a history of progressive menstrual pain, that is, the pain is getting more from year to year, either in intensity, or in terms of duration....

Some women experience mid cycle spotting for a couple of days and this might actually be a sign of ovulation. This is because just before ovulation occurs, there is a little dip in the level of hormones produced by the ovary. This results in slight spotting before the levels build...

There could be several possibilities for your symptoms. If you are fully breast feeding your child, then there is a possibility of a low female hormonal (estrogen) environment - due to the fact that the ovary is less likely to ovulate. The lower oestrogen levels may lead to vagina...

Usually some variation in the volume of flow and presence of clots do occur from cycle to cycle. However, if you do notice there has been a consistent increase over a number of cycles, then one should consider the possibility of fibroids and endometrial polyps. Menstrual bleedi...
