Dr Claudine Tan is a Specialist in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (O&G) who has dedicated her entire career to the care of pregnancy and women’s health. She first developed a keen interest in O&G during her undergraduate years at the National University Singapore. After receiving her degree in Medicine and Surgery, she promptly completed her internship and residency at various hospitals, including KK Women’s & Children’s Hospital and National University Hospital. Following which, she was accepted into the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists in London.
She has plentiful experience in clinical and surgical obstetrics that include antenatal ultrasound, natural childbirth and assisted delivery (caesarean, vacuum and forceps). She is extensively trained in gynaecological surgery, such as abdominal, laparoscopic (key-hole), urogynaecological and pelvic floor repair. She was an appointed clinical tutor for Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University Hospital.
As a mother of two, Dr Tan understands the physical and emotional demands of pregnancy, childbirth and post-delivery. With focused antenatal care and thoughtful childbirth planning, she has faith that every woman can enjoy all three trimesters of pregnancy, followed by painless and uncomplicated labour.
Her O&G expertise and interest expand beyond pregnancy and childbirth. She believes wholeheartedly in adopting a holistic approach towards women’s health; prevention and early detection of gynaecological cancers constitute a significant part of this belief. She advocates vaccination (against cancer-associated viruses), routine women’s health screening including Pap smear, pelvic ultrasound and mammogram, as well as healthy eating and leading an active lifestyle. Her other areas of expertise are birth control, family planning, fertility counselling and menopause treatment.
Apart from regular participation at international O&G conferences, she has conducted presentations at some of them, held in Italy and Portugal. She has several publications in recognized medical journals.
In her free time, Dr Tan relishes family outings and overseas travel.
