Toronto East General Hospital Doctor Finishes First In Ontario

Urologist Dr. Rajiv Singal puts words into action in Movember Campaign

TORONTO, Nov. 30, 2012 /CNW/ - With the completion of Movember, the Toronto East General Hospital (TEGH) Foundation has congratulated Dr. Rajiv Singal for his inspirational campaign that saw him finish first in Ontario by raising over $42,000 in support of the fight against prostate cancer.

Dr. Singal, longtime Head of the division of urology and current Lead of the surgical robotics program, demonstrated his leadership in prostate cancer awareness by putting his words into action.  He completed the challenge with his moustache intact and finished second across Canada

"I started Movember this year after a three year hiatus to support our patients and annoy my family," said Dr. Singal.  "Urologists of course treat prostate cancer on a daily basis and often in a very profound way but have never taken the lead on this grassroots initiative."

Under Dr. Singal's leadership, the Hospital has invested significantly into the robotic surgery program that has started to establish TEGH as the training ground for the next generation of robotic surgeons. Thanks to donors and a partnership with Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, TEGH's recent acquisition of the revolutionary da Vinci System, aka "The Robot" provides patients with the latest in Minimally Invasive Surgical technology. It enhances an already exceptional program and enables surgeons to dramatically change the experience for prostate cancer patients.

"As the month has progressed I have been overwhelmed by the support and it has reinforced why I think we should lead the way," added Dr. Singal. "If the goal is to promote awareness for both the disease and the clinical programs that we run at our institutions then finishing strongly and hopefully on top will most widely achieve that goal."
