Dr Sim graduated with honours from University College Dublin in 2005. He completed his advanced traineeship in Urology in 2014. In addition to presenting at various local and international conferences, Dr Sim has also been speaker and faculty at international conferences. He is author of various publications in both local and international journals. Dr Sim has also been actively involved in the education of medical students, residents and fellows. Dr Sim has successfully conducted multiple advanced laparoscopic urology and Endourology workshop in Singapore, Myanmar and Thailand.
In 2014, Dr Sim was awarded a fellowship at the Eberhard Karls University of Tuebingen (Germany) with Prof Christian Schwentner, sub-specialising in Endourology, Laparoscopic and Robotic Surgery. He has a keen interest in management of urinary stone diseases and minimally invasive surgeries for bladder, kidney and prostate. He is trained in sub-specialized procedures such mini PCNL (Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy), wide range of laparoscopic surgeries such as laparoscopic radical nephrectomy, nephroureterectomy, partial nephrectomy, pyeloplasty, retroperitoneal lymph node dissection (RPLND), IVC thrombectomy as well as robotic partial nephrectomy, prostatectomy and radical cystectomy with special interest in intracorporeal urinary reconstruction. Since returning from his fellowship, he has been advancing minimally invasive surgeries and pioneering surgical techniques such as supine PCNL, ECIRS, Video Endoscopic Inguinal Lymphadenectomy (VEIL) and zero ischaemic partial nephrectomy with super-selective clamping.
Prior to returning to Malaysia, Dr Sim was Consultant urologist at Singapore General Hospital and he was also Director of Endourology and Fellowship at SGH. Dr SIm has won various service awards for his excellence in clinical service.
