Prior to joining private practice, he was a senior consultant vascular, endovascular and aortic surgeon at the National University Heart Centre, Singapore (NUHCS).
Dr Choong graduated from the Imperial College London School of Medicine at St Mary’s, UK. He underwent training in vascular, endovascular and aortic surgery in the UK and Australia at the imperial vascular unit at St Mary’s Hospital London, and as the international fellow at the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital, Australia. He was awarded a PhD by the University of Warwick, UK, for his research on endovascular surgery.
After practising in the UK and Australia, he left his consultant post at King’s College Hospital, UK, to join NUHCS.
