BIOGRAPHY

Dr Mark Wong is the Medical Director and Senior Consultant surgeon of Mark Wong Surgery, and practices at Mount Alvernia Hospital. Prior to this, Dr Wong practiced for more than 15 years at the renowned Department of Colorectal Surgery at Singapore General Hospital, where he pursued his interests in minimally-invasive (robotic and laparoscopic) colorectal cancer surgery, endoscopy (gastroscopy and colonoscopy) and functional disorders (piles, constipation and incontinence).

Dr Mark Wong completed two coveted Ministry of Health (MOH) sponsored fellowships in Minimally- Invasive Colorectal and Pelvic Floor Disorders in France in 2010 and Denmark in 2014, respectively. Shortly after his return, he was appointed Director of the SGH Pelvic Floor Disorders Service, the Nation’s first multidisciplinary initiative between specialists from Colorectal Surgery, Urology & Gynaecology, providing holistic care for faecal incontinence, constipation and pelvic organ prolapse. In 2015, he was appointed Director of the SGH Gastrointestinal Function Unit, another first in the country offering comprehensive evaluation and advanced therapies for functional gastrointestinal disorders.

Dr Mark Wong is highly sought after as an opinion leader in the field of minimally invasive (laparoscopic and robotic) colorectal cancer and pelvic floor surgery, having been invited to lecture at numerous international conferences. He is widely published and has served on the medical advisory boards of leading hospitals in Singapore. He is also dedicated to training the next generation of surgeons, having held academic appointments in both Duke-NUS and National University of Singapore Medical schools. In 2015, he was awarded the prestigious SGH CEO Service Award in recognition of his clinical excellence and compassion to patients. In 2016, he received the coveted SGH scholarship to pursue an Executive Masters in Business Administration (MBA), which he successfully completed at the Singapore Management University in 2017 with top Honours.

Despite a busy private practice, Dr Wong continues to travel widely delivering lectures to both medical professionals and public audiences. He remains passionate about sharing his experience and raising awareness on conditions that he specializes in, particularly important conditions such as colorectal cancer, as well as common conditions like piles, gastritis/GERD/reflux, gallstones and hernia. He routinely treats these conditions using the latest technology, including endoscopy (gastroscopy and colonoscopy), laparoscopic and robotic surgery.
