Handbook On Colorectal Diseases
The “Handbook on Colorectal Diseases” has just been released as an E-book and available on iBooks and iTunes. It was a labour of love from my colleagues and I to give an overview of noteworthy topics in Colorectal Surgery. We authored this book as a guide to primary care doctors, trainees in General Surgery and medical students to give them a better understanding of the common conditions that afflict our patients. I am proud to have contributed several chapters to the Handbook on Colorectal Diseases. Sharing our knowledge and expertise in Colorectal Surgery is one way for us to give back to Society; by educating fellow and future doctors about these conditions. Many thanks to Fortis Healthcare Singapore for making this a reality. Many thanks to Janssen-Cilag, Singapore and Transmedic, Singapore as well for your sponsorship of the book.
If you are interested in purchasing the book, it is available on iBook and iTunes. See more "Press and Book Publications"

Talk Synopsis
Colorectal cancer is the Number 1 cancer in Singapore today. Every year, roughly 1000 men and 800 women are diagnosed with colorectal cancer in Singapore. Up to 8% of these are under the age of 50. Of these who were diagnosed, only about 57% of them are curable because many sought treatment at a late stage of disease. However, this is one of the most preventable cancers today and treatment in the earlier stages of colorectal cancer can give more than 80% chance of cure. Come and learn about risk factors for colon cancer and how to reduce your risks. Dr Lim will also share methods of prevention of colon cancer!
