Dr Kan graduated from Manchester University Medical school and went on to obtain further qualifications from Addenbrookes Hospital. Thereafter, he pursued post-graduate senior surgical fellowships at world-renowned centres - National Cancer Centre and the Cancer Institute (Tokyo, Japan), Prince of Wales Chinese University Hospital (Hong Kong) and Princess Alexandra Hospital (Brisbane, Australia). These fellowships have trained him to be well-versed with thoracoscopic resections for oesophageal and gastric cancers and MIS for the benign oesophageal disease. Minimally invasive/ keyhole surgery is a highly complex surgery and Dr Kan is one of a few surgeons in Asia who can successfully treat stomach and oesophagea cancer using this method.
He served as a clinical lead in Upper GI focusing on MIS in general surgery and a surgical lead in trauma and bariatric surgical services at Alexandra Hospital and Ng Teng Fong General Hospital. There, he established a multidisciplinary team to perform laparoscopic gastric bypass and sleeve gastrectomies on severely obese patients.
Dr Kan’s other clinical interest includes bariatric/metabolic surgery for the obese patient. He has been performing laparoscopic gastric bypass since 2002.
On top of his clinical practices, Dr Kan regularly shares his knowledge and experiences and has presented at medical conferences all over the world (USA, UK, France, India, Singapore, Australia, Philippines, Vietnam, and Thailand).
