His passion for teaching Advanced Laparoscopy attracted specialists from Malaysia,Thailand, Indonesia, Philippines and the region to train with him. He was awarded Outstanding Clinical Teacher in 2007 and appointed Visiting Professor for Laparoscopy to University of Philippines in 2009.
Anthony is the first gynaecologist in Singapore to perform Single Incision Laparoscopy for womb and fibroid removal. He has done more than 400 such cases and also performed the first Single Incision Laparoscopic womb removal in Indonesia, Philippines, Cebu and Vietnam.
With regards to fibroids, Anthony does not believe that every single fibroid needs to be removed in every lady. His medical philosophy is that every woman needs to be informed of the facts on fibroid, provided with all the feasible treatment options and respected for the informed decision that they make. Dr Anthony Siow is a keen proponent of medical treatment of fibroid as it is effective and almost risk-free. Where surgery is needed, Anthony strives to undertake it by Single Incision Laparoscopy, so that his patients can recover in days, with minimal pain and hardly a scar to remind them of the ordeal.
