Professional Statement

Dr Tan Kai Chah is a renowned liver surgeon practising at Gleneagles Hospital, Singapore. He specialises in hepatobiliary surgery and liver transplants and has trained, practised and worked in the United Kingdom.

During his time in the United Kingdom, Dr Tan pioneered various liver transplant procedures for both adults and paediatric patients; these include the first ‘split-liver’ transplant, the first auxiliary liver graft, five combined liver-kidney procedures and two combined heart-liver transplant.

Dr Tan spent six years as the senior liver transplant surgeon in King’s College Hospital, London, where he trained 26 surgeons and performed more than 400 procedures. He also advised and helped implement the Irish National Liver Transplant Programme at St. Vincent’s Hospital in Dublin.

In 1994, Dr Tan returned to Southeast Asia and set up his private practice, the Asian Centre for Liver Diseases & Transplantation (ACLDT), in Gleneagles Hospital, Singapore and the Subang Jaya Medical Centre (SJMC) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

From 1996 to March 2002, Dr Tan was director of the Liver Transplant Programme at Singapore’s National University Hospital, where he performed 72 transplants, both adult and paediatric. He also started a Living Donor Liver Transplant (LDLT) programme at SJMC in 1995, where he has performed more than 50 procedures before he left.

Dr Tan’s work primarily involves general hepatobiliary surgery and liver transplantation. In January 2002, Dr Tan and his team at Gleneagles Hospital, Singapore were authorised to perform LDLTs. In April that same year, Dr Tan performed the first successful adult-to-adult LDLT in Southeast Asia. To date, the team in Gleneagles Hospital has performed more than 240 LDLT procedures.
