Dr.Lim’s key interests are in advanced antenatal care and minimal invasive laparoscopic lazer surgery. He was among the first obstetricians to introduce routine ultrasound scanning in Singapore in the 1980’s. He was also among the first to use the 3 and 4D scanning machines when they became available and this is now standard practice in his management of pregnant patients. When minimal invasive or key hole surgery was first used in gynaecology, Dr. Lim was also among the first to introduce this procedure for the treatment of fibroids, ovarian cysts, infertility etc in Singapore in the 1980’s. His experience with this modality of treatment runs into several thousand cases treating the most simple to the most complex .
