Dr. Loh Keh Chuan has been practising as Consultant Endocrinologist in Mount Elizabeth Medical Centre since 2004. Prior to starting his private practice, he had previously served in the public sector as a Senior Consultant in Tan Tock Seng Hospital and a Visiting Consultant to both Thyroid Clinic at National Cancer Centre and Endocrine Clinic at KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital. He had published over 50 clinical and research papers in peer-reviewed medical journals and authored several book chapters on various endocrine topics. Besides diabetes and general endocrinology, his special interest is in thyroid diseases, including ultrasound-guided biopsy and sclerotherapy of thyroid nodules, and thyroid cancer management.
