Dr Lim Geok Hoon is the Head and Senior Consultant of Breast Centre, KK Women's and Children's Hospital and Clinical Associate Professor with Duke-NUS Medical School. She is a trained oncoplastic breast surgeon and believes that a good cosmetic breast result is as paramount as a safe oncological outcome. She has several publications with most of her works focusing specifically on the surgical oncoplastic techniques most applicable to Asian women. She also has a special interest in genetic breast cancer, which is why she pursued a year-long fellowship in the United Kingdom on breast cancer genetics and oncoplastic surgery. She founded the Singapore Breast Oncoplastic Surgery Symposium (SBOSS) in 2015 to increase the regional awareness of oncoplastic breast surgery. She pioneered the minimal scar mastectomy technique and is also the inventor of the world's first virtual breast oncoplastic surgery simulator (VBOSS) used for the training of oncoplastic surgery.
