Your SingHealth Story: Dr Ong Peck Leong

“I qualified as a neurosurgeon in 1977, when the specialty was still in its infancy in Singapore. The workload then was higher as there were only three other neurosurgeons and limited surgical equipment. What kept us going was the love for the surgery and dedication to the department.

My greatest joy is seeing patients recover and going back to their daily lives. I recently started using Facebook and some of my past patients have gotten in touch with me there. One lady, whose husband I treated about 20 years ago, said that he is now well and is a doctor! As we get older, we realise that material things are not that important after all. We prefer to be remembered in a nice way.”

- Dr Ong Peck Leong, Emeritus Consultant, Department of Neurosurgery, National Neuroscience Institute
