Dr Sze Ling Wong, MD FRCSC FRACS

Dr Sze Ling Wong is a leading Endocrine Surgeon in Perth, Australia who upholds excellence in personalised patient-centered care.

She is a highly trained and experienced General Surgeon specialising in Endocrine Surgery with specific interests in all aspects of thyroid, parathyroid and adrenal procedures. Having completed her training in General Surgery with the Royal College of Surgeons of Canada in 2012, Dr Wong then spent 2 years of post-fellowship training in Endocrine Surgery at The Alfred in Melbourne and Royal Perth Hospital in Perth.

Dr Wong has performed thousands of successful surgeries. She is sought after for minimally invasive procedures to treat cancers, including ‘Scarless’ Transoral Thyroidectomy. As a pioneer of Transoral Endoscopic Thyroidectomy Vestibular Approach surgery in Australia, she has set the benchmark in scarless neck thyroid surgery.

To achieve the best possible clinical outcomes for her patients, Dr Wong therefore devotes time to training, mentoring, leadership, and community roles.  She was awarded the 2019 General Surgeons Australia Excellence in Surgical Teaching Award.

Tending to patients at both private and public hospitals, her compassionate team (which includes her secretary and anaesthetist) works closely with each hospital to ensure every patient is well informed and well looked after.
