Overview

Dr Jarrod Lee graduated from the National University of Singapore in 1998 and attained
specialist accreditation in 2009. He started private practice in 2013 and ran a successful
solo practice before founding gutCARE in 2014. gutCARE has since grown to be the
leading group practice is digestive disorders, with regional authorities anchoring the
various sub-specialty fields.

Dr Jarrod Lee is a well-recognised endoscopist in the region. He has established himself
in advanced endoscopy, in complex endoscopic cases and in combining endoscopic
platforms and techniques. He is one of a few doctors in Asia to win the coveted ASGE AV
Award for endoscopy. In 2011, an international expert panel selected his submission
over 100 submissions from 17 countries to win the prestigious international award. His
technique for endoscopic ultrasound was included in the ASGE Learning Library, which
serves as an international reference standard for endoscopy.

Dr Lee is regularly invited as faculty in endoscopic workshops and conferences both
locally and regionally. He lectures and performs demonstrations extensively, especially
in his subspecialty interests of advanced endoscopy, digestive cancers and
pancreatobiliary disorders. He is one of the few doctors in Singapore recognized as a
‘Key Opinion Leader’ by the industry leaders in endoscopy and is invited to evaluate new
endoscopic technologies in Singapore. He reviews for the top endoscopy journals in the
world and consults for the major companies in the endoscopy industry.

Despite the many advances in endoscopy, Dr Lee believes that technology does not
replace technique, which one must constantly evolve and improve. And endoscopy does
not replace the fundamentals of good clinical practice: the evidence based yet patient
centric clinical care, multi-disciplinary teamwork and good communication with patients
and family physicians.

When I met Dr Jarrod Lee, I was glad that I chose him. He was super cheerful and was patient in answering my queries. I knew I was in good hands. Before I went in for the Gastroscopy, an administrative staff, Irene, was telling me that Dr Jarrod is very gentle. True enough, I did no...
