Dr. David Khoo Sin Keat is a consultant cardiovascular and thoracic surgeon with over 20 years of experience. He specialises in non-invasive diagnostic and therapeutic cardiology, as he believes that heart diseases can be treated without subjecting the patients to enormous post-surgical pain and prolonged recovery and downtime.
He started his medical career in 1989 at the University of Kuala Lumpur. After four years, he became a full-fledged surgeon and Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh. He furthered his knowledge in the field of cardiothoracic surgery and completed his subspecialty training at the Institut Jantung Negara, which was followed by his fellowship in advanced cardiovascular and thoracic surgery at the Mayo Clinic, USA, in 1996. In 1999, he returned to the Institut Jantung Negara after he was appointed as a consultant cardiothoracic surgeon. In 2000, he started his private practice at Ipoh Specialist Hospital before he set up iHeal Medical Centre, a premier medical facility that specialises in the diagnosis, treatment, and management of heart diseases using the most advanced available technology. The centre is recognised as the only centre in Malaysia dedicated solely for less invasive bypass (off-pump).
