All in a Day’s Work: Seamless Ambulatory Surgery for Children
No matter how routine it is, the idea of surgery – especially surgery for children – can be a concerning prospect.
A father himself, Dr Zeng Hao Joel Wong of Paediatric Surgery and Urology International,
takes a meticulous approach in running the ambulatory surgical service. Having it together with his clinic, ensures he can maintain strict oversight and management of its processes.
Clinic and Ambulatory Surgical Centre
As a specialist trained in paediatric general surgery and urology, Dr Wong started Paediatric Surgery and Urology International with the goal of delivering safe and effective surgery for children. Not only is the operating Theatre Ministry of Health certified, it has also attained International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and National Environmental Balancing Bureau (NEBB) certifications, to achieve a clean room anti-sepsis standard.
To this end, he has invested time and effort to design an integrated clinic that includes an in-house, fully accredited ambulatory surgery service. “We are an all-in-one centre. We do all the things a clinic does – and the surgery too,”
POST-SURGICAL CARE AND SAME DAY DISCHARGE
Another area that Dr Wong addresses is post-surgical after care. On the day of surgery, after the operation, most if not all, of his patients are able to return home where they can recover in the comfort of their own beds. For this to happen, Dr Wong adopts techniques and equipment so that the patient can be discharged on the same day.
All of his patients can also reach him via instant messaging. As a doctor, he believes his duty is not just in treating conditions at a given point in time, but also in ensuring continuity of care and looking after the patient’s whole being.
This underscores his centre’s motto of care: “Your child first.”
The centre is also a Medisave accredited , Child Development Account and Baby Bonus Approved Institution. We provide e-filing, striving to make the financial payment process a seamless one.
