About SMG Specialist Centre 

The majority of SMG’s 27 specialist and diagnostic clinics are conveniently located at the Paragon Medical facilities in the heart of Orchard Road, but SMG clinics are also found at Mount Elizabeth Novena Specialist Centre, Parkway East Medical Centre, Raffles Place, Farrer Park Hospital and Gleneagles Medical Centre. From Ulink Assist’s case volumes, SMG is particularly strong in health screening and oncology. 

Lifescan Medical and Imaging is the health screening and diagnostic centre arm of SMG at Paragon Medical. It offers fast processing times to cater to the needs of international patients with hectic travel schedules. The results of the radiology and endoscopy scan are known within 1-2 days. If test results reveal any problem such as cancer, doctors at Lifescan will be able to tap the 6 different hospitals under the SMG network and give the patient a specialist referral for them to receive the specialist care in the shortest time possible. 

SMG’s specialist doctors are recognised for advanced and minimally invasive treatments with lower side effects for O&G conditions as well as cancer. SMG’s O&G doctors were first in Southeast Asia to perform the High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) surgery, an outpatient treatment for cysts, fibroids and benign tumours. Additionally, SMG’s oncologists strive to give breast and prostate cancer patients an alternative option to chemotherapy – by identifying the unique cancer mutation that the patient possesses, the oncologist can prescribe personalised targeted therapy medicine that kills the patient’s cancer cells containing this specific mutation while sparing healthy cells.
