In August 2003, a group of highly skilled surgeons from various surgical specialties came together and formed Surgeons International Holdings, SGIH. The group comprises of doctors specialising in treatment, open and laparoscopic procedures of specialities like Cardiology & Cardiothoracic, Dentistry, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, General Surgery, Hand Surgery, Nephrology, Neurosurgery, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Orthopaedic & Sports Medicine, Othorthinolaryngology (ENT), Oncology, Paediatric Surgery, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Respiratory Medicine and Urology. All our patients enjoy a high level of coordinated medical care by our team of experienced specialists.
SGIH has many advantages that make it stand out from other institutions and medical organizations. First, it is a consolidation of established surgeons with proven track record. Secondly, it is not confined to one hospital. Hence, it is mobile and modular in nature enabling it to fit and blend into any institution or medical centre in Singapore or the region. The group has visiting rights to all private hospitals in Singapore. SGIH has the capability to operate out of day surgicentres as well. Thirdly, it is multidisciplinary in terms of surgery and besides providing surgical services it can also provide medical consultancy and transfer of technology.
Finally, SGIH can adjust to changes in the medical tourism industry best because it enjoys direct interaction with patients or medical tourists. Hence, SGIH is the most comprehensive established surgical group with the capability to regionalize and internationalize. In our opinion, SGIH has the right philosophy to be the best hope and partner of SingaporeMedicine.
