Profile

Dr James Mok is a Consultant Plastic Surgeon with the Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery. He graduated with distinction from Barts and the London Medical School, and returned to Singapore to complete his plastic surgery training with SingHealth. His subspecialties are Paediatric Plastic Surgery and Burns, Cleft and Craniofacial Surgery, Breast Reconstruction and Cosmetic Surgery.

Dr Mok was awarded the prestigious Singapore Stanford Biodesign Fellowship in 2015. The postdoctoral fellowship trains the next generation of medical technology innovators in Asia. Dr Mok was also awarded the National Outstanding Clinician Scientist Resident Award in 2017. The award recognises outstanding performance and contribution to clinical training and research to improve patient care.

Dr Mok has delivered on various innovative ideas which have been locally employed in the treatment of patients. He aspires to revolutionise fem-tech and baby-tech in his current sphere; transforming palpable patient needs through high impact inventions and translating them for better patient outcomes.

Research Interests

Wearable non-invasive device to provide dynamic neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) of the superficial and deep calf muscles for lower limb venous return. Developing a proof of concept device to deliver superior lower limb venous return that enhances compliance and reduces burden of disease in chronic venous insufficiency and deep vein thrombosis patients.

Automated Continuous Post-surgical Monitoring of Vascularised Graft using Electrochemical Metabolite Detector. Developing a proof of concept sensor and system for in vivo detection of glucose and lactate and algorithm for detection of ischaemia in a free flap monitoring model.

Wireless Micro Current Stimulation (WMCS) therapy for accelerated burn wound healing. A single blinded randomized controlled trial investigating the efficacy of WMCS in burn wound healing, burn conversion, hypertrophic scarring and pigmentation post burns.

Wearable adhesive skin patch for treatment of keloids. Developing novel microneedle patch device for sustained local keloid therapy.

Paediatric Burn Epidemiology and First Aid. Describing the epidemiology of paediatric burns in Singapore and advocating a national health campaign through the Ministry of Health to combat our rising paediatric burn incidence.
