Message from Dr Adrian Saurajen

"I have been very blessed and humbled to have been given the opportunity to study medicine and in particular ENT, pediatric ENT and Sleep Surgery. I believe that the practice of Medicine is a calling, a great honour and a very precious gift from God. So many people have either mentored me or been so generous and kind with their time in taking me under their wings and teaching me what was often not found in textbooks but what they learnt from experience. In treating patients, I have truly learnt that the practice of medicine is one of humility, of serving and that with time and experience; medicine moves from just being a science to also truly becoming an art. I thank God for having led me on this road; which at times has been challenging but ah.....always so fulfilling!  I also want to thank the many patients who have taught me that we are not merely treating diseases but that we are treating people..."

Achievements / Experience

 

DR ADRIAN SIEW MING SAURAJEN is a Ear, Nose and Throat Surgeon who has subspecialty training in Sleep Medicine and Surgery and a special interest in Sinus Surgery (Balloon Sinuplasty) and Pediatric ENT.

 

Dr Saurajen graduated from the University of Sydney and worked in Australia (Royal North Shore Hospital) and Singapore thereafter obtaining the FRACS Part 1 examination. He has post-graduate fellowships in ENT from the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. He is a Fellow of the Academy of Medicine of Singapore and was also an International Fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngology- Head and Neck Surgery.

Dr Saurajen is also one of the few ENT surgeons worldwide who has a formal qualification in Sleep Medicine. He did his Masters of Medicine (Sleep Medicine) at the University of Sydney under Professor Colin Sullivan (who invented the CPAP machine for Sleep Apnoea). He had also previously undertaken a Fellowship in Sleep Medicine and Surgery under Professor Tucker Woodson where he was a Clinical Teacher at Medical College Wisconsin in Milwaukee, USA.

Dr Saurajen is also one of the first few surgeons in the region to do some of the more complex snoring operations and has special interests in pediatric ent, nasal, sinus, balloon sinuplasty and minimally invasive surgeries in reshaping the upper airway for patients with sleep apnoea.

Dr Saurajen was also instrumental in performing the Balloon sinuplasty for chronic sinusitis patients in Asia. This is a minimally invasive procedure where a balloon is inserted into the paranasal sinus openings and then dilated to reventilate the sinuses. He has thus been invited as a speaker for the International Sinus Forum/ENT Summit series in New York and in Kuala Lumpur over the past decade. He was also invited to speak on BBC and the local media for ENT-related issues.

Dr Saurajen has been an active speaker both locally and internationally and has published in both local and international medical journals. He has also been invited to collaborate on innovative surgical techniques with other ENTs Internationally and locally.

Dr Saurajen has also been invited to participate in International Meetings, International Discussion Groups and Research Collaborations both locally and internationally.

 

He was given the honour of being the plenary speaker for the ASEAN ORL Meeting in Cambodia in 2009.

 

Dr Saurajen was also invited as a judge for the prestigious Yahya Cohen Memorial Lectureship by the College of Surgeons Singapore and was also a reviewer for the Singapore NMRC investigator grants.

 

On the non-medical front, Dr Saurajen and his wife set up the Zachary Liver Fund in 1999 to 2015 in conjunction with the NUH endowment fund. He was the ex-trustee of this fund which helps patients with liver failure and require liver tranplants. This fund was set up in memory of his first born son who was born with liver failure and raised in excess of a million dollars.
