Dr Ong is one of the main surgeons who manages breast cancer in Sydney & Australia.
He works in the South Western Sydney Local Health District (SWSLHD) Breast Oncology service which sees >200-250 new breast cancers in Macarthur a year. He is a member of the breast oncology clinical team and is involved in the multidisciplinary management of breast cancer patients.
He is a surgeon at BreastScreen NSW and is involved in the treatment of screen-detected breast cancers.
Dr Ong contributes to the care of breast cancer patients in Macarthur through the following initiatives:
- Acquisition of a wireless sentinel node probe – the Neoprobe. Narrower targeting means smaller incisions and less dissection of tissues, potentially causing less pain, leading to enhanced recovery.
- Dr Ong partners with leading plastic surgeons to offer a range of breast reconstruction after cancer surgery.
- First surgeon to setup on-site hookwire services at the public hospital. Breast cancer patients do not have to travel between different sites, which reduces stress & anxiety on the day of surgery.
- First surgeon in Macarthur to utilise patient-controlled Aeroform AirXpanders© for breast reconstruction following mastectomy. Aeroform is a revolutionary implant that expands without the need for painful needles or regular visits to the surgeon’s rooms.
High-resolution ultrasound scans are conducted by Dr Ong in his private rooms to assist with diagnosis and management of breast diseases.
Dr Ong is passionate about the holistic care and quality management of patients with breast cancer. Newly diagnosed breast cancer patients can often be seen in the same day or within 1-2 days of their diagnosis.
