​The SingHealth Duke-NUS Head & Neck Centre specialises in the management of diseases and tumours of the head and neck region for adults and children.

It is a disease-based multidisciplinary service dedicated to complex head and neck diseases and tumours. Aside from providing clinical services to our local population, it is also a regional referral centre and centre for research.


The Centre provides expertise not only in the traditional open surgical approach, but also in advanced minimally invasive techniques such as:

  • Transoral robotic surgery
  • Transoral laser microsurgery
  • Endoscopic skull base surgery
  • Remote-access thyroid surgery
  • Non-invasive techniques for management of thyroid nodules

Clinical Services - SingHealth Duke-NUS Head & Neck Centre


The Centre forms a unique platform for the collaborative work of a multidisciplinary team of healthcare professionals to meet patient needs throughout their journey in SingHealth.

Our team of specialists is experienced in the assessment and management of complex head and neck diseases and tumours. They work closely with nurses and allied health professionals to achieve the best outcomes for our patients in the pursuit of comprehensive oncological resection, aesthetic reconstruction and functional rehabilitation.

Cases are discussed at a multidisciplinary tumour board comprising surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists and other allied health professionals.

In the care of our patients, we view them as well as their family members as part of the team. At our combined nursing and allied health clinic, the team provides education, counselling and support to patients and their family in the treatment journey.
