Overview

Dr Lee is a fellowship trained spine surgeon who has extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of spinal diseases. He graduated with a bachelor of medicine and surgery from the National University of Singapore in 1993 and proceeded into surgical training obtaining his Fellowship in Surgery from the Royal College of Surgeons (Edinburgh) in 1998. He was accepted in the Singapore Orthopaedic Training program subsequently and exited in 2003 after completing his exams in FRCS Ed(Ortho). He subspecialized in Spinal Surgery having completed various short term fellowships in Spine (Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan & England) and a 12 month stint in the United States (University of Missouri) working with various masters of Spine surgery.

Before establishing his private practice in August 2012, Dr Lee was Senior Consultant and Chief of Spine service at the Orthopaedics Department, Changi General Hospital (CGH), Singapore. He set up the service since 2009; oversaw training of spine surgeons and established a comprehensive patient care program where patients are hand held and led through the surgical process and its recovery with a cross discipline team of doctors, nurses and physiotherapist.

Dr Lee is also passionate about improving healthcare processes and had secured multiple  grants from the Health Ministry’s Healthcare Quality improvement Fund over the years. He has spearheaded process improvements hospital wide in clinical infection, thromboprophylaxis and multi-disciplinary care of the elderly with hip fractures. He won numerous awards for quality improvement and was a recipient of the Singhealth Service Quality Award.

He had an interest in clinical research and has written papers in peer review journals and was also a Principal Investigator in a National Medical Research Council grant. He teaches undergraduates and surgical trainees and has an appointment as Senior Clinical Lecturer from the Medical Faculty of National University of Singapore and Mentor to the Orthopaedic Residency Program, Singhealth.

Personally, Dr Lee believes in personal engagement of the patient in the diagnostic and treatment process of his illness. Best practices and medical evidence are discussed and the treatment options should be co-owned with the patient. He strives to provide his best service to help his patients in a swift recovery from illness.
