Gastroenterology Group Practice in Singapore


About Us

gutCARE was founded with the aim of providing Singapore with a specialized digestive group practice. Gastroenterology is one of the fastest developing fields in medicine. As such, it is no longer possible for a single specialist to excel in all the different areas of digestive disorders. gutCARE brings together established gastroenterologists in each subspecialty in a single team, with an aim to provide specialized digestive care under one roof. gutCARE patients have access to a complete team of specialists and services, normally found only in established gastroenterology departments in renowned institutions in Singapore and the region.

Subspecialty Focus

gutCARE provides specialized expertise in all fields of digestive disorders. Gastroenterology is one of the fastest developing fields in medicine, with rapid advancements in such varied fields as Endoscopy, Liver Disorders, Functional Disorders, Gut Motility, Pancreatobiliary Disorders, and Digestive Cancers. Each subspecialty field requires years of additional focused training beyond standard specialization training before one can be considered an expert. It is not possible for a single doctor to be an expert in all the different areas. gutCARE brings together experts in each subspecialty area, to ensure that our patients have access to the correct level of expertise for any digestive disorder. It is often difficult for patients to know which subspecialty area is appropriate for them. gutCARE addresses this problem by giving our patients full access to our entire team. Complex cases are managed by a team rather than a single doctor, with input from the appropriate expert in the subspecialty area. The subspecialty focus ensures that gutCARE continues to evolve in each area as medicine advances and becomes more specialized.

gutCARE brings together expertise in each subspecialty field in a single team. It is often difficult for patients to know which specialists are truly experts in their field. gutCARE patients are seen by doctors who are known in their subspecialty area, and whose opinions are recognized by the industry. Our consultants have presented at regional conferences, published in peer review journals, and held professorial appointments in academic institutions. Some of our specialists sit on international and regional level expert committees, perform live demonstrations at regional workshops, introduce novel techniques and therapeutics, and even won international competitions in their field. The professional standards of gutCARE are benchmarked against industry standards in each area by the appropriate subspecialist and assures our patients of the quality of our expertise.

 


Group Practice

gutCARE utilizes a group practice model. This offers the convenience of multiple clinic locations and multiple doctors for patients to choose from. gutCARE utilizes a specialist team concept. No patient is fully reliant on a single doctor, and there will always be a doctor available to see any gutCARE patient even when the patient’s regular doctor is not available. gutCARE is trusted and recognized by all the corporate insurance panels, and can offer direct billing for panel patients. At a group level, our charges are harmonized across clinic and doctors, and are consistent with national benchmarks, fee guidelines and ethical codes.

Endoscopic Services

gutCARE offers the full spectrum of general and advanced endoscopic services, from diagnostic and screening endoscopy, to complex and novel advanced procedures. These include: gastroscopy, colonoscopy, standard and advanced polyp removal, piles ligation, endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), small intestine endoscopy, endoscopic dilation and stenting, feeding tube placement and exchange, and endoscopic emergencies. Our procedures are performed in fully equipped Endoscopy Centres, with contemporary technology and equipment. For more difficult procedures, equipment may be catered specially from overseas for our patients. It is difficult for patients to know what level of endoscopic expertise they require. The majority of specialists offer basic expertise in general endoscopy, and do not spend extra years of training to offer the more advanced procedures. gutCARE will ensure that each procedure is performed by the specialist with the appropriate expertise, and that our patients have access to our full range of endoscopic procedures.

Niche Services

gutCARE provides an in-house suite of niche services in the various subspecialty fields. These are possible because of our subspecialty focus and group practice model. The niche services include: motility studies, manometry, combined pH-impedance monitoring for reflux disorders, hydrogen/ methane breath testing for sugar intolerances and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), FibroScan liver stiffness measurement, specialist dietetics, and clinical psychology. Our patients have full access to these services, which are otherwise only available in the large academic public hospitals in Singapore.
