About


I am Dr Noel Leong and I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself. I am a certified specialist in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and my subspecialty is Reproductive Medicine and In-Vitro Fertilisation (IVF). The practice of Reproductive Medicine includes the management of couples with infertility and the endocrinology of reproduction in women from teenage years through to child-bearing period and into the peri-menopausal and post-menopausal ages.

My interest in the treatment of infertility and IVF started in 1978 when I obtained my specialist degree and when I took over the running of the Infertility Clinic at the old Kandang Kerbau Hospital. During those early days before 1978, before IVF, the usual treatment methods available were ovulation induction with clomiphene or human menopausal gonadotropins and surgery to repair blocked fallopian tubes or to restore pelvic anatomy previously destroyed by pelvic adhesions caused by infection, endometriosis or past surgery.

When I was awarded the Ministry of Health’s Human Manpower Development Planning Fellowship (HMDP) in Reproductive Microsurgery and Endocrinology in 1983, I chose to acquire additional skills in tubal microsurgery and minimally invasive (laparoscopic and hysteroscopic) surgery (MIS) by working with Professor Robert Winston at the Hammersmith Hospital, London for 7 months and with Professor Egon Diczfalusy at the Karolinska Institute, Stockholm for 2 months. As tubal reconstructive surgery in specially selected cases and especially reversal of female sterilisation was a good alternative option to IVF treatment, our department in KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKWCH) was able to provide this much needed service to our patients with tubal factor infertility.

In 1991 when IVF was firmly established in many centres in the world, KKWCH decided to restructure and expand their IVF services and I was awarded another HMDP Fellowship, this time in Reproductive Medicine and IVF. I chose to spend the next 2 years from 1991-1993 as a visiting Fellow attached to the Reproductive Biology Unit at the Royal Women’s Hospital in Melbourne which was then under the stewardship of Dr Ian Johnston. During those 2 years, I was assistant to Dr Lyndon Hale for a year and the following year I was appointed to his position as the department’s clinical co-ordinator of the IVF Centre.

When I returned to KKWCH I was appointed Head of Department of Reproductive Medicine, KKWCH and Director of KKIVF and the National Sperm Bank on 1 April 1993. The department was providing training for doctors and embryologists, both local and foreign, to specialise in Reproductive Medicine and for authorisation to perform Assisted Reproduction and IVF procedures. I was also the Chairman of the MIS Credentials and Accreditation Committee in the hospital, which was responsible for the training and certification of doctors who completed the training requirements to do minimally invasive surgery. Besides specialising in Reproductive Medicine and Reproductive Surgery, I continued to look after women in their pregnancies and deliver their babies. I thoroughly enjoyed my years of service at KKWCH and I was glad that I have contributed to the expansion and growth of the department into a full fledged unit offering a comprehensive range of services, teaching and research activities in Reproductive Medicine, Reproductive Surgery and IVF.

I left KKWCH for private practice in 2001. Presently my private practice is in Mount Elizabeth Novena Specialist Centre. I do my IVF procedures mainly at Thomson Fertility Centre and Parkway Fertility Centre and I have admission rights for my patients to be treated at Thomson Medical Centre, Mount Alvernia Hospital, Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital, Gleneagles Hospital and the other Parkway Group of Hospitals.
