gutCARE Digestive·Liver·Endoscopy Associates

gutCARE was founded with the aim of providing Singapore with a comprehensive and specialized digestive group practice. Gastroenterology is one of the fastest developing fields in medicine. As such, it is no longer possible for a single specialist to excel in all the different areas of digestive disorders. gutCARE brings together regional level authorities in each subspecialty field under a single team, to provide comprehensive and cutting edge digestive care. gutCARE patients have access to a comprehensive team of specialists and services, similar to a full gastroenterology department in any renowned institution in Singapore and the region.

gutCARE provides specialized expertise in all fields of digestive disorders. The specialty focuses on symptom evaluation and investigations to establish the correct diagnosis. This enables proper treatment, which may include medication, lifestyle and diet changes, endoscopic solutions and even surgery. Complex cases are managed by a team rather than a single doctor, with input from our regional authority in the relevant field. The group practice model offers the convenience of multiple clinic locations and multiple doctors for patients to choose from. gutCARE is trusted and recognized by all the corporate insurance panels, and can offer direct billing of costs for panel patients.

gutCARE offers the full spectrum of general and advanced endoscopic services, from diagnostic and screening endoscopy to evaluate symptoms and guide treatment options, to complex and novel advanced procedures which are beyond the expertise of general endoscopists. These include: gastroscopy, colonoscopy, standard and advanced polyp removal, piles ligation, endoscopic ultrasound (EUS), endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), small intestine endoscopy, endoscopic dilation and stenting, feeding tube placement and exchange, and endoscopic emergencies.

gutCARE provides an in-house suite of niche services in the various subspecialty fields. These include: motility studies, manometry, combined pH-impedance monitoring for reflux disorders, hydrogen/ methane breath testing for sugar intolerances and small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and FibroScan liver stiffness measurement. These services, which aid in diagnosing symptoms and carrying out treatment, are otherwise only available in the large academic public hospitals in Singapore.
