PK Women's Specialist Clinic @ The Venue
You are here
PK Women’s Specialist Clinic is a trusted clinic for female care in Singapore. It deals with numerous health problems affecting women of all ages, from ovarian cyst treatment to womb prolapse.
The specialists here are painstaking and understanding. They take their time with a patient so they can attend to their concerns in an unhurried fashion. This makes people comfortable and they feel at ease when they have to talk about their private health issues.
When the doctors want to put together a treatment plan for someone, they will take into account family history, lifestyle choices, and other important factors. They put in the extra effort because they know everybody is different. Even two women who share the same gynaecological problem will not be offered the same solution. Instead, they will get a customised treatment that will allow them to live better.
About Dr Tan Poh Kok
Dr Tan Poh Kok is head of the clinic and an OB-GYN with many years of experience. He holds medical degrees from the NUS and the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecology (UK). He also has accreditations from the Singapore Medical Council and MOH.
Dr Tan has extensive experience and knowledge in tackling women problems and carrying out operations, as in pelvic floor reconstructive surgery and vaginal hysterectomy. He also works laparoscopically for various gynaecological conditions.
The specialist was conferred the HMDP award in Uro-gynaecology & Pelvic Floor Reconstruction Surgery back in 2005. This led him to continue his education with sub-speciality training in the same niche in Melbourne, Australia.
Once he got back in Singapore, he started a new job at Singapore General Hospital as a co-director of their pelvic floor disorder department. One of his biggest achievements there was that he participated in developing a number of clinical guidelines, education protocols and pamphlets for women.
For starters, the clinic offers wellness screening packages for women who wonder whether they are doing the best for themselves. Among services like ovarian cyst treatment they also focus on different stages of life like menopause and cover a variety of tests:
- Breast mammogram and ultrasound
- STD screening
- Ultrasound scans of the pelvis (e.g. for uterine fibroids)
- HPV and pap smears for cervical cancer
- General health
- Menstrual disorder (irregular menses, etc.)
Womb prolapse / urinary incontinence
PK Women’s Clinic is ready to assist female patients who have urinary leakage and prolapse with the best possible treatment. They can prescribe medication or, in more serious cases, reconstruction surgery will be necessary.
Family planning/contraception counselling
The medical practitioners at PK can advise those who are not yet ready to have children on the most suitable contraception methods. Sterilisation is also an option.
On the other end of the spectrum are women who want to conceive. For them and their partners, the staff at the clinic delivers pre-pregnancy check-ups where several factors are taken into account.
And when you are expecting, the doctor will ensure you get everything right by monitoring your medical health all the way through. There are different packages to help identify potential problems. They generally offer the following services:
- Antenatal package and care
- Cord blood banking
- Ultrasound scans
- Labour / delivery
When the situation calls for it and surgery is the only treatment that can work, the specialists at PK will do whatever it takes. There are two main types: minimally-invasive and vaginal surgery. Different medical conditions call for a different approach.
