The International Centre for Thoracic Surgery (ICTS) is led by Medical Director and Senior Consultant Thoracic Surgeon, Dr Aneez D.B. Ahmed (阿尼兹医生). Dr Aneez has been a practitioner in the field of thoracic surgery, with a special interest in robotic thoracic surgery and thoracic oncology for over 20 years. ICTS is conveniently located at Mount Alvernia Hospital and Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital.
After completing his cardiothoracic training at the National University Hospital, Singapore, he passed his Fellowship exams from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. Prior to starting his private practice, Dr Aneez served as the Head of Service of Thoracic Surgery in the Department of General Surgery at Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH), Singapore.
The International Centre for Thoracic Surgery is also known for providing minimally invasive solutions for various thoracic conditions. Dr Aneez’s interest in robotic surgery led him to be recognised as the first in the ASEAN cohort to get a Level III Certificate Specialist training in Robotic Thoracic Surgery from the European College of Cardiothoracic Surgery (EACTS). With sabbaticals in Europe and USA for advanced training in robotic thoracic surgery, he now leads the training program for thoracic surgeons in ASEAN and South Asia. He is also the immediate past President of the Robotic Surgical Society of Singapore (RS3).
Built upon Dr Aneez D.B. Ahmed’s beliefs, the International Centre for Thoracic Surgery strongly believes in the marriage of technology and surgery to help improve lives. Robot-assisted surgery allows surgeons to perform procedures with more precision and control compared to conventional open surgery. Robotic surgery is performed through tiny incisions, allowing quicker patient recovery, minimal scarring and reduced risk of infection.
