Background

  • Dr Poh Beow Kiong is a urology specialist practising in Gleneagles Hospital and Mount Elizabeth Hospital, Singapore. He specialises in operative urology, particularly advanced minimally invasive surgery and endourology.
  • He is also one of the first urologists who helped refine the technique of laparoscopic retropubic radical prostatectomy (lap RRP) for prostate cancer in Singapore.
  • Dr Poh is one of the few urologists in Singapore who routinely performs ultrasonic access of the kidney during percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) of renal stones. He is also one of the few urologists in Singapore who is fellowship-trained to perform the technically challenging Holmium Laser Enucleation of Prostate (HoLEP), an advanced technique which removes large prostates in benign prostatic hyperplasia.
  • Dr Poh completed his advanced specialist training in urology in Singapore. Subsequently, he undertook his sub-specialty fellowship training at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Vancouver, Canada under world-renowned endourologist Dr Ben Chew and minimally invasive/keyhole surgery surgeon Professor Ryan Paterson.
  • Dr Poh has contributed significantly in the academic front. He served as a faculty member of the Urologic residency programme while on his fellowship at UBC, teaching junior Canadian urologists the techniques of advance kidney stone surgery. He is currently a clinical Teacher and examiner of the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine at the National University of Singapore, and is a teacher and mentor for the Singapore Urology Residency Training Programme, in the fields of urological cancers and urinary stones. Dr Poh is also an invited lecturer with the Indonesian Urological Association and is involved in the training of urologists in the region.
  • Actively involved in research as well, Dr Poh has aided in the development of various new devices and techniques. During his stint at UBC, Dr Poh was involved in the research and development of new-generation endourologic stents, which led to the development of the revolutionary MicroStentTM(PercSys) , a tube which gives kidney stone patients relief until they can be treated. In addition, Dr Poh was also involved in the research of renal physiology in intrarenal pressures during PCNL which contributed to the development of the novel AccordionTM device.
  • Beyond his subspecialties of urological cancers and stones, other conditions that Dr Poh treats include benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), bladder cancer, blood in the urine, erectile dysfunction, erection problems, kidney cancer, kidney stones, low sperm count, prostate cancer, prostate disease, sexually transmitted diseases, subfertility, urinary incontinence and urinary tract infections.
