Dr. Tay is a Consultant Pain Specialist and Anaesthesiologist. He graduated from National University of Singapore and was awarded Masters of Medicine (Anesthesiology) in 2009. After completing his specialist training, he went on to do a multi-disciplinary chronic pain clinical fellowship program at St Joseph Hospital in London, Ontario, Canada. He underwent training on interventional procedures to manage and treat various chronic pain conditions such as neck/back pain, headache, abdominal pelvic pain and cancer pain. He is skilled in performing ultrasound-guided chronic pain interventions, avoiding radiation exposure to patients when compared to using traditional fluoroscopic techniques. Upon returning from his fellowship, he consulted at the Pain Management Centre and Department of Anaesthesiology of Singapore General Hospital. He continued to further his skills and was awarded Fellow of Interventional Pain Practice by the World Institute of Pain in 2014. He is currently practising at Farrer Park Medical Centre and Gleneagles. He is also a visiting consultant at Singapore General Hospital Pain Management Centre. He has published a number of articles in peer-reviewed journals and is frequently invited to speak at local and oversea conferences on pain related topics. He is also actively involved in teaching and conducting hands-on chronic pain intervention workshops.
