Dr Angeline Goh is a renal medicine specialist at Mount Elizabeth Hospital, Singapore.
She subspecialises in kidney transplantation.
Dr Goh has more than 20 years of experience in clinical medicine. She is well-versed in the use of immunosuppressants, and has spent over a decade caring for kidney transplant recipients and donors.
Having cared for more than 400 prevalent kidney transplant recipients, she understands the need for regular monitoring to keep transplant recipients in good health.
Prior to starting private practice, Dr Goh was a senior consultant nephrologist and transplant physician at the National University Hospital (NUH), where she was in charge of the Living Donor Kidney Transplant (LDKT) programme. Under her leadership, more than 100 new living donor kidney transplants have been performed in the National University Centre for Organ Transplantation from 2013 – 2019.
Dr Goh underwent advanced specialty training in renal medicine at the Singapore General Hospital (SGH), and became an associate consultant in 2007.
The importance of maintaining good kidney function after a transplant has led her to further develop preventive nephrology in her practice. Preventive nephrology is about preventing kidney failure, and is done through identification of urinary abnormalities such as blood or protein in the urine, and diagnosis of diabetes and hypertension.
She has developed her own programme to monitor and advise patients on how best to maintain good kidney function to ensure good overall health. She strongly believes that good kidney function is a prerequisite for a healthy life.
Dr Goh was a former assistant professor in the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, NUS, and external lecturer for the School of Health Sciences, Nanyang Polytechnic.
She was formerly in charge of the overall teaching schedule for renal medicine trainees in SGH, and was core faculty in charge of transplant teaching for the Nephrology Senior Residency Programme in NUH.
She helped to train fellows from the International Society of Nephrology from Bangladesh, Myanmar, and Brunei, as part of the development of the Transplant Programme in regional countries.
Dr Goh has been actively involved in research in kidney transplantation and has presented in regional and international conferences.
She was awarded a Poster of Distinction at the American Transplant Congress in 2009 for her work, “Survival of Second Liver Allografts is Influenced by Anti-HLA Class I Antibodies”, and has published her research in local and international medical journals.
