“I am passionate about providing holistic care for patients with cancer across Singapore.”

Dr Grace Tan graduated from Guy’s, King’s and St Thomas’s College of Medicine in London, UK. After returning to complete her general surgery and surgical oncology training at Singapore General Hospital and the National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS), Dr Tan went on to complete her subspecialty training in Cytoreductive Surgery (CRS) and Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC) at the renowned NHS Peritoneal Malignancy Unit in Basingstoke, UK.

Dr Tan is currently serving as an executive committee member for the Asian Peritoneal Surface Malignancy Group and as a member of the Gastrointestinal and Sarcoma Clinical Trial Steering Committee. She has co-authored over 70 research papers that were published in journals such as the Journal of Surgical Research and International Journal of Clinical Oncology, and is a reviewer for The Surgeon and the International Journal of Hyperthermia.

In recognition of her significant contributions to cancer care, Dr Tan was awarded the RISE awards for outstanding faculty in 2014, the 2017 Editor’s Award for significant contribution by an investigator in the “Clinical” category by the International Journal of Hyperthermia, and in 2019, she was awarded the Singapore Health Quality Service Gold Award.

Dr Tan accepts referrals for all cancer types, with a special clinical interest in gastrointestinal cancers (colorectal, stomach, oesophagus), peritoneal and pelvic malignancy, melanoma and sarcoma.
