Dr. Tan Poh Kok graduated from the National University of Singapore (NUS) in 1991 with Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery degrees (MBBS). He obtained his post-graduate qualification from the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecology (United Kingdom) in 1998.

Dr. Tan was a Senior Consultant at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Singapore General Hospital (SGH), one of the biggest, regionally-renowned JCI-accredited hospitals in Singapore.

Dr. Tan achieved Specialist Accreditation with the Ministry of Health Singapore and the Singapore Medical Council in 2001.

Besides providing care for pregnant women as well as general gynaecological (also known as gynae) services, Dr. Tan has a special interest in the field of Uro-gynaecology, a sub-speciality dealing with female pelvic floor disorders such as womb prolapse and urinary incontinence (involuntary urinary leakage)

 

In 2005, Dr. Tan received the Health Manpower Development Plan (HMDP) Fellowship Award in Uro-gynaecology & Pelvic Floor Reconstruction Surgery and pursued his advanced sub-speciality training in Uro-gynaecology in Melbourne, Australia.

Upon return from his advanced training, Dr. Tan was appointed Co-director of Pelvic Floor Disorder Service at Singapore General Hospital and was instrumental in the development of numerous in-house patient education pamphlets and protocols and clinical guidelines for managing women with

  • urinary incontinence
  • uterine and vaginal prolapse (involuntary urinary leakage)

Dr. Tan has extensive experience in performing vaginal surgeries including

  • vaginal hysterectomy for
    • Uterine fibroids
    • Enlarged uterus  (adenomyosis)
  • pelvic floor reconstructive surgery for
    • Womb prolapse
    • Bladder wall prolapse
    • Rectal wall prolapse

Dr. Tan is also an experienced surgeon in laparoscopic (key-hole) pelvic surgery for common gynaecological conditions such as:

  • Ovarian cysts
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Endometriosis
  • Pelvic pain

The credentials and accolades are impressive, but in the end, what makes a great medical practitioner is how their patients feel about them. There is no such thing as the best gynaecologist (gynae) or recommended women’s clinic in Singapore. There are different needs and personal preferences. Thus, it is recommended to always see what other people have to say about the specialist in question.

Read patient’s experiences

In Dr. Tan’s mind, the trust and confidence his patients have in him is his most valued testimonial. He states such in his own words:


Like any professional, I’m proud of my accomplishments and the documents hanging on my wall,
but the things that really matter to me are the look of trust in my patient’s eyes, and the
confidence they have in the decisions we arrive at together. You can’t hang that on a wall, but it’s
my shining achievement, nonetheless.

Dr Tan’s compassion and patient-centred care is evidenced by the numerous awards he was bestowed with over the years.

The Excellent Service Award (EXSA) is a national award that recognises individuals who have delivered outstanding service. Dr Tan was conferred Gold EXSA Award in 2008.

On numerous occasions, he was the recipient of Service from the Heart Award. This is an award given to SGH staff who receives many accolades from patients.
