Dr Chong has been looking after cancer patients for 20 years. He has worked with many senior surgical oncologist, medical oncologist and radiation oncologist to have a broad understanding on management of this dreaded disease.
Dr Chong participated in various international cancer conferences to keep himself abreast with this condition. He also took time off work to do a stint in Japan to learn about minimally invasive breast cancer surgery and various reconstruction techniques. Dr Chong also travelled to places like US and Vietnam to upgrade his skills on minimally invasive colorectal surgery.
He believes that breast is an important part of a woman's image, and hence Dr Chong is a believer of breast conservation surgery. He will make the greatest effort to save the breast, but not at the expense of safety of the patient. However simple breast conservation surgery might result in breast deformity. Dr Chong has various breast remodelling techniques to help keep the deformity to the minimum.
