Mr Chong is a skilled and experienced surgeon who is able to manage all conditions of the breast especially breast cancer. He has an impeccable record of delivering effective and efficient service to his patients. As an Oncoplastic Breast Surgeon, he always aims to provide the earliest possible date for surgery for his breast cancer patients. In his operations, he combines both effective breast cancer surgical treatment with the best plastic surgical techniques to achieve desirable cosmetic results.
His practice is especially up-to-date and is supported by the latest scientific evidence. In addition to surgical and drug treatment, his practice also includes dietary and exercise programmes that have been proven to improve breast cancer prognosis. He specialises in breast cancer risk management for patients with increased breast cancer risk such as in the Ashkenazi Jewish population. His practice also includes managing adverse effects of breast cancer treatment such as breast scar pain, reducing menopausal symptoms resulting from anti-hormone treatment, psychological support and cosmetic corrections of unpleasant surgical scars.
