Dr Law Wei Seng graduated from the National University of Singapore in 1999 and obtained his post-graduate degree in Obstetrics & Gynaecology from Royal College of Obstetrician and Gynaecologist of London. He received advanced training in fertiloscopy at Hôpital Privé Natecia in Lyon, France under the distinguished mentorship of Dr Antoine Watrelot, a world-renowned laparoscopic surgeon and the “father of fertiloscopy”, which is a scarless surgery for patients with infertility.
Dr Law’s main interest is in gynaecological laparoscopy, better known as key-hole surgery or endoscopy, which results in minimal scarring, a better cosmetic result and a much faster recovery compared to conventional surgeries. He has performed thousands of operations using this approach for the treatment of cysts, endometriosis, and fibroids, and for managing infertility. His vast experience is well recognized throughout the region and has trained doctors in laparoscopy and fertiloscopy throughout Asia.
Dr Law is actively involved in humanitarian work and was a two-time recipient of the Ministry of Health Award for his direct involvement in medical relief in disaster areas.
He is also a clinical tutor at Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine (National University of Singapore) and a trainer for post-graduate doctors in Obstetrics and Gynaecology.

You should see a gynaecologist if you have any menstrual, fertility, contraception, or pregnancy questions or issues, as well as any sexual health concerns. An appointment with a gynaecologist is recommended for yearly screening, and any time a woman has issues or concerns regarding vaginal, pelvic, or vulvar pain and abnormal bleeding.
A medical check-up is necessary after having a baby; this is to ensure that you are recovering well from the labour process and birth. You must see a gynaecologist within three weeks of giving birth even if you are feeling fine.
For uncomplicated pregnancies, you should see your obstetrician every 4 four weeks up to the 28th week of pregnancy. Between 28 and 36 weeks of pregnancy, visit an obstetrician every two weeks. And from 36th weeks to birth, expect to see your obstetrician weekly.
A gynaecologist must have the proper licenses to practice in Singapore. Our centre provides comprehensive care throughout your pregnancy journey. We are also an established center for laparoscopic surgeries.
A doctor’s gender is not directly related to skills and knowledge. Some female gynaecologists are better than males, while some male gynaecologists are better than females; it all depends on their credentials and experience.
Having an appointment with a gynaecologist is very important because there are women’s health conditions that can lead to severe symptoms if they remain unaddressed, especially serious conditions such as gynecological cancers.
A gynaecologist specializes in women’s health, specifically concerning the reproductive system and performs various tests and exams to diagnose diseases and treat them.
An obstetrician is a medical doctor that cares for women during their pregnancy, from prenatal care to postnatal care. They also deliver babies. On the other hand, a gynaecologist is a doctor that specializes in issues or concerns regarding a woman’s reproductive health. An ob-gyn is trained to do all these things.
An appointment with the gynaecologist starts much like any other doctor’s appointment. Your gynaecologist will talk to you to about personal and medical information and may perform exams or procedures depending on your health condition.
