Dr Daniel Phang is an anaesthesiologist and pain management physician at Mount Elizabeth Hospital and Parkway East Hospital, Singapore.
He has clinical interests in ultrasound-guided regional anaesthesia and nerve blocks as an option apart from general anaesthetic and to manage surgical pain.
Besides anaesthesiology, he is proficient in assessing and managing painful conditions with the use of image-guided intervention. These conditions range from musculoskeletal and mechanical, to degenerative, accident-related or caused by various diseases and illness.
Dr Phang is a firm believer that ultrasound-guided assessment and intervention enhances bedside assessment and care of patients with acute and chronic pain. It allows for reduced procedural time and improved accuracy in identifying areas causing pain.
In 2016, he completed a year-long pain management fellowship at the Toronto Western Hospital, Canada. Later, he achieved his Certification in Pain Sonology with the World Institute of Pain in 2017. Dr Phang is one of the few local pain physicians who have obtained both FIPP and CIPS certifications from the World Institute of Pain.
As a consultant in Singapore General Hospital, Dr Phang is actively involved in education, where he arranged and gave regular lectures on pain management topics.
He has also been invited as a lecturer and faculty for the New York School of Regional Anesthesia workshops and in the region.
