About Dr Jarrod Lee

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.

Singaporean Gastroenterologists Share Tips On How To Identify And Deal With Food Poisoning
Singaporean Gastroenterologists Share Tips On How To Identify And Deal With Food Poisoning

Recently, an unbelievable amount of food poisoning cases have appeared throughout Singapore. An outbreak that lasted the whole of November led to over 400 people being affected. Many of them were hospitalised for severe symptoms. 

What's even more terrifying is that while the lapse in food hygiene could be one cause, the scale and proximity of the incidences are pointing to something more; such as a bug or contaminated source.

Many Singaporeans are now fearful that they might end up spending their end-of-year holidays in the hospital. Thus, it's important to take precautions and be extra careful about where you celebrate and what you eat to stay safe!

Here are some tips from experienced gastroenterologists from the DxD community that may be able to help you identify and deal with possible digestion-related ailments.

The commonest cause of bloating is food intolerance. The problem is not the size of the meal, but that you are probably eating food that you are not able to digest without being aware of it. The undigested food is then metabolized to hydrogen and methane gases by gut bacteria, and c...
