Official Profile

Dr. Mathew Tung Yu Yee specialises in treating disorders of the brain and spine with special interest in back pain and neck pain, nerve pain and headache. He believes that neurosurgery should always consider the non-invasive options before open surgery to attain minimum morbidity and a fast return to optimum function.

In spinal disorders, Dr. Mathew Tung aims for motion preservation, reversible treatments that can be repeated in preference to fusion. In the last 15 years he has performed operations using non-invasive techniques such as:

  • stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and stereotactic radiotherapy (SRT) for brain tumours
  • minimally invasive techniques with endoscope-assisted method to access the pituitary adenoma
  • treat hydrocephalus and ventricular tumours
  • spinal laminectomy for spinal tumours
  • facet joint injections
  • cervical and lumbar disc replacements
  • spinal decompression and fusion
  • endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy for sweaty palms

Dr Mathew received his training as a neurosurgeon in Singapore General Hospital (SGH), Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH), National Hospitals for Neurology and Neurosurgery London and Queen’s Medical Centre (QMC) Nottingham.

He pursues continued medical education eagerly and keeps abreast of latest techniques by attending courses and attachments in Europe (SRS, SRT, spinal surgery and disc replacement), America (skull base approaches to acoustic neuroma) and China (endovascular techniques for vascular disorders).

In other areas of his professional work, Dr Mathew Tung also lectured / presented at various institutions in Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia & China on his specialty area of interest (neurosurgery).
