About Me

I was born in Kulim, Kedah. I was the fifth child, in a family of seven siblings and spent my childhood in a village within a rubber estate. Together with my two best buddies from school, an Indian boy and a Chinese boy, we had the most wonderful time exploring the nearby swampy secondary jungle for spiders and fighting fish. To get extra cash for personal expenses, we reared goats and hunted iguanas.
 
What made me want to study medicine? It may well be the ‘Your Ambition’ essays demanded by teachers those days. I would have more points to write if my ambition was to be a doctor, so I thought. 
 
I eventually went on to study medicine at the University of Malaya and graduated in 1982. I left to work and to get further training in Obstetrics & Gynaecology at the Princess Anne’s Hospital in Southampton, England. While working there, I successfully obtained the memberships of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.
 
I then moved on to the prestigious St.Mary’s Hospital and Medical School in Paddington, London, following a successful application to enroll into Fellowship Training Programme in Gynaecological Oncology. I was trained in the complexity of the total management of Gynaecological Oncology by some of the best known mentors in this field. My two and a half years at St. Mary’s were the best years as far as training and networking were concerned. The exciting life in London arguably made me a better person.
 
I returned to Malaysia in 1990 and served as a lecturer at the National University of Malaysia. I subsequently left for private practice in 1996. I started with the Gleneagles Hospital Kuala Lumpur and now, with the Prince Court Medical Centre as well.
 
I strongly believe that age should not be a barrier in wanting to learn new techniques. I have recently completed my training in Robotics Assisted Gynaecological Surgery. I have now performed these procedures in the interest of my patients.
