Our Story

What makes a good surgeon

Mastery of Surgery not only involves learning how to operate well but also when to operate,  what to operate, and on whom to operate. Hence, there are no shortcuts to becoming a good surgeon.

Dedication to surgical skill refinement

With this in mind, Dr Singaporewalla has always been tirelessly finetuning his skills in the operation room to improve treatment outcomes for his patients. After his primary and advanced surgical training, he was selected for the Head Neck Surgery Fellowship Programme at the prestigious Tata Memorial Cancer Centre in Mumbai, India. Handling many cases in the centre helped him elevate his surgical skills and sparked his passion for Head Neck - Endocrine Surgery. Subsequently, he furthered his expertise in minimally invasive surgery by completing advanced training in General and Laparoscopic (Keyhole) Surgery in Singapore. Thereafter, he was awarded the prestigious Ministry of Health Singapore fellowship for subspeciality training in Germany and the UK, gaining in-depth knowledge about thyroid, parathyroid, and adrenal surgeries.

After completing his rigorous training, Dr Singaporewalla dedicated himself to public healthcare for over 2 decades. During that time, he noticed the 'ping-pong effect'. As few healthcare professionals are well-versed in a comprehensive range of head-neck and endocrine diagnostic tools, patients would be referred from one specialist to another with long waiting times between appointments. He observed that a typical patient usually takes 4 to 16 weeks before finally receiving their test results and diagnosis.

Streamlining diagnostics at ACE: conducting multiple tests in a single day.

To resolve the aforementioned problem, ACE was born to provide faster diagnosis and treatment for general and endocrine conditions. ACE aspires to streamline the diagnostic process by conducting multiple tests, such as thyroid function tests, bedside ultrasound, and ultrasound-guided FNAC within the same day.

ACE will continue striving to provide a more pleasant and seamless patient journey for those suffering from general surgical and endocrine conditions.
