Eugene Lin, BVSc (Sydney), Cert Vet Endoscopy & Endosurgery (ESVPS)
Dr Eugene Lin graduated from Sydney University in 2001 and started work in a small animal practice in Singapore. He received training in interventional and minimally-invasive surgeries in the United States and the United Kingdom. Eugene is the first veterinarian in Singapore to incorporate minimally-invasive techniques into rontine surgeries. Close to 80% of his surgeries are now performed with flexible endoscopes or rigid laparoscopes. To date, Eugene has done hundreds of laparoscopic ovariectomy, crypto-orchiectomy, biopsy, as well as laparoscopic-assisted procedures such as cystotomy, gastromy, gastropexy and enterotomy.
He also routinely performs esophagogastroduodenoscopies, otoscopies, rhinoscopies and vaginocystoscopies. Advancing into the field of Interventional Radiology and Interventional Endoscopy (IR / IE), utilising multiple imaging modalities, Eugene now performs minimally-invasive procedures for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes such as laparoscopic biopsies, stent placements and subcutaneous ureteral bypass (SUB). IR is often combined with endoscopy known as Interventional Endoscopy (IE), to perform procedures such as tracheoscopy, bronchoscopy, urethroscopy and gastroduodenoscopy.
He is also a contributor to the Veterinary Interventional Radiology and Interventional Endoscopy Society (VIRES) and a member of the Veterinary Endoscopy Society (VES). Eugene has been invited by Karl Storz to conduct seminars and workshops on the applications of endoscopy both locally and internationally including Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan and Korea.
