He is currently a Consultant Surgeon in the Department of Surgery, Changi General Hospital with a subspecialty interest in breast surgery. His clinical practice is mainly on breast diseases, both benign and malignant. He completed his advanced fellowship in oncoplastic and minimally invasive (endoscopic and robotic) breast surgery in 2019 and became the first surgeon in South East Asia to be trained in the full spectrum of minimally invasive breast surgery techniques. Dr. Mok also believes that the appearance of the breast after cancer resection is extremely important and therefore every patient deserves a tailored, individualised solution.

In terms of research, Dr. Mok has published extensively in breast cancer related topics and he also serves as a peer reviewer in Journal of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (JPRAS) and Journal of Surgery.
