Awards and Publications
Dr Tan’s main surgical interest is in the treatment of degenerative spinal disorders of the cervical and lumbar spine. His other sub-speciality interest is in pituitary tumours where he performs minimally invasive endoscopic transphenoidal surgery. His interest in spinal disorders led him to become the first surgeon in Asia to successfully use artificial cervical discs implants in spinal surgery. He has since performed over 300 of such cervical spinal operations.
