Experience

 

My higher surgical training in urology was obtained through the specialist urological programme of the Nottingham deanery. I started as a registrar on this training programme in September 1994. After ten months, I took up the post of research fellow in the Department of Physiology and Pharmacology, Nottingham University Medical School, under the supervision of Professor S. J. Hill, Professor of Molecular Pharmacology and Mr. C.P. Bates, Consultant Urologist. The research project focused on developing a cell culture model for investigating intracellular signaling in human detrusor smooth muscle. I resumed my clinical training on completion of the project in June 1997. The research resulted in a M.D. thesis that was awarded in July 1999.

The department of urology in Nottingham was a very busy unit with excellent exposure to all aspects of urological practice and the opportunity for operative experience was remarkable. There was a comprehensive educational programme aimed at the FRCS (Urol) examination. I also spent one year in Derby City General Hospital, which was a unit equally geared towards training and research. After obtaining my FRCS (Urol), I spent two months in the Institute of Urology & Nephrology, Mansoura, Egypt as a visiting fellow under the supervision of Professor M.A. Ghoneim. The aim of this post was to consolidate my subspecialty interests particularly in uro-oncology. During this visit I acquired the skills in performing orthotopic bladder reconstruction.

About Me

 

I was born in the island of Penang, Malaysia where I acquired my early education. I departed to the United Kingdom for higher education after completing my SPM (‘O’ levels equivalent). After obtaining my A levels in Brighton, England, I embarked on my medical education in the University of Nottingham, England and graduated in 1988. My basic and higher surgical training was primarily acquired in teaching hospitals in the Trent region in England. I thoroughly enjoyed my student and professional life there and was fortunate to have made the acquaintances of, and be trained by some very well respected and celebrated surgeons. After obtaining my certificate of completion of specialist training in Urology (CCST), I returned to Malaysia to take up my position as Associate Professor in the University of Malaya in March 2001. I have been full time private practice since 2005. I am a general urologist with special interests in uro-oncology, female urology and lower urinary tract dysfunction.
