Dr. Suresh Nair

CONSULTANT OB-GYN & MEDICAL DIRECTOR OF ACRM

Dr Suresh Nair is a senior Consultant Obstetrician and Gynaecologist.

His passion for surgery was rewarded with the Singapore Government Training Programme award (HMDP), where he spent 2 years (1991 – 1993) intensively training in endoscopic surgery in the United States of America, United Kingdom, France and Germany. To further complement his passion for assisted reproduction technology, he achieved the Masters of Reproductive Medicine in 2009, from the University of New South Wales, Australia.

Dr Nair has comprehensive experience in advanced laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgery and has been the trailblazer in robot-assisted laparoscopic gynaecological surgery. He has performed many complex surgeries for severe endometriosis, multiple large fibroids and advanced pelvic gynaecological, urological incontinence, pelvic floor reconstructive and oncological surgery. His other specialties include obstetrics services, diagnosis and treatment of gynaecological cancers, in vitro fertilization (IVF) and ovarian tissue cryopreservation (a procedure to preserve ovaries for patients whose reproductive potential will be affected by cancer therapy). He provides a broad spectrum of options to assist couples who have difficulty conceiving to enhance their chances of conception by applying appropriate reproductive technologies, effective and clinically proven treatment methods to reduce the time for couples to become parents.

Recognized as a fertility specialist with a panoramic view in his field, Dr Nair is a much coveted speaker, faculty lecturer and conducts training programmes in assisted reproduction and endoscopic surgery at regional and international meetings. He has also contributed to peer-reviewed journals and written chapters in several authoritative books. He has been a keen instructor and mentor to gynaecologists in Singapore and the region. He derives great joy and fulfilment in proctoring and guiding those who seek to improve their clinical skills, but is also ever willing to learn from both his senior and junior colleagues. 

He was the past Medical Director of Parkway Fertility Centre, the assisted reproductive centre, at Mount Elizabeth Hospital (November 2008 to December 2011), where about 500 fresh IVF/ICSI cycles were performed annually. He was also the Medical Director of Pacific Fertility Institutes Medical Clinic in 2018. He was also the past President of the International College of Surgeons (Singapore section) from May 2012 to May 2013. He held the post as President of the Obstetrical and Gynaecological Society of Singapore from March 2009 to March 2011. He is also a Visiting Consultant to the National University Hospital, Singapore.

Helping couples conceive and supporting them through the journey towards becoming a “mum” and “dad” has been and continues to be, the most fulfilling endeavour and experience of Dr Suresh Nair’s passion as a fertility doctor.
