Background

  • Dr Adrian Siew Ming Saurajen is an ENT surgeon at Gleneagles Hospital, Singapore.
  • He subspecialises in sleep medicine and surgery, and has a special interest in sinus surgery (balloon sinuplasty) and paediatric ENT.
  • He is one of the few ENT surgeons in the world to have formal qualification in sleep medicine.
  • He is also one of the few surgeons in the region to perform more complex snoring operations, and one of the first surgeons in Singapore to do palatal advancement pharyngoplasty and ultrasound guided tongue reduction.
  • Dr Saurajen was one of the first few surgeons in Asia to perform the balloon sinuplasty for chronic sinusitis. This is a minimally invasive procedure where a balloon is inserted into the paranasal sinus openings and then dilated to reventilate the sinuses.
  • He undertook a fellowship in sleep medicine and surgery at Medical College Wisconsin in Milwaukee, USA.
  • He was a former ENT surgeon at Tan Tock Seng Hospital, and was responsible for the running of the Tan Tock Seng Hospital (National Healthcare Group) Sleep Clinic. He was instrumental in coordinating specialists from different disciplines to treat sleep patients. He currently sees over 500 snorers a year.
  • He currently has visiting rights at Gleneagles Hospital, Parkway East Hospital and Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital.
  • He has been invited as a speaker for the International Sinus Forum series in New York and Kuala Lumpur for several years, and was also given the honour of being the plenary speaker for the ASEAN ORL Meeting in Cambodia in 2009.
  • He was invited as a judge for the prestigious Yahya Cohen Memorial Lectureship by the College of Surgeons Singapore, and is a reviewer for the Singapore NMRC investigator grants.
  • On the non-medical front, Dr Saurajen and his wife set up the Zachary Liver Fund in 1999 in conjunction with the NUH endowment fund. He was the ex-trustee of this fund which helps patients with liver failure and requires liver transplants. This fund was set up in memory of his firstborn son who was born with liver failure.
