Ravi Surgery is one of the premier surgical clinics in Singapore and in Southeast Asia. It provides optimised surgical care with safety, comfort, and desired outcome for the patient. For this reason, the clinic is focused on laparoscopic or minimally invasive surgery, including elective, emergency, and complex laparoscopic operations. These types of surgeries unlike conventional open operations, require significantly smaller incisions, thereby reducing the operative risks, pain, and hospital stay with faster recovery time
The clinic specialises in laparoscopic surgery of the abdominal organs like gallstones, inguinal, umbilical & incisional hernia, acute conditions like appendicitis, major operations involving the stomach, spleen, small bowel, colon & rectum, adrenal glands, and others. Cancer surgery of the gastrointestinal tract from the oesophagus to the rectum is also done laparoscopically. The clinic has been offering Bariatric surgery to deal with obesity since 1999.
The clinic is led by Dr. Ravintharan, who has over 28 years of experience starting as a general surgeon. Then in 1990, on a Singapore government scholarship, he travelled to Scotland where he worked with some of the finest surgical specialists, to train in the new and fast developing field of minimal access surgery, specialising in advanced laparoscopic surgery. He was one of the first Asian surgeons to receive such training and returned to Singapore to further advance laparoscopic surgery. He has travelled and trained surgeons in the Asian region and Singapore since 1992.
Together with his team, he provides a well-planned and individualised surgical programme with the aim of solving medical and surgical conditions leading to a safe and comfortable outcome for each patient and to enhance and prolong the quality of life for those with cancers.
Dr. Ravintharan is a highly experienced, well-respected General Surgeon in Singapore and around the region. With the latest technologies and evidence-based techniques, he performs Emergency, Elective, and Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery as well as Cancer, Obesity, and General Surgical procedures. Through these, he aims to provide individualised and well planned treatment for patients with abdominal conditions like Hernia, gallstones, Appendicitis, tumours, cancer and obesity.
