He was awarded Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of  Surgeons in 2012.

Dr Han is currently a consultant urological  surgeon at Box Hill Hospital and Angliss Hospital in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne.

Dr Han is passionate about minimally invasive  surgery in urology. He uses the latests treatment modalities,  technologies and surgical techniques to deliver better functional and  oncological outcomes to his patients in conjunction with faster recovery and less operative morbidity.

Dr Han has had extensive training and experience in:

  • Holmium Laser Enucleation of the Prostate
    a modern alternative to TURP which is associated with reduced bleeding, faster recovery and much reduced reoperation rates (2%)
    gold standard test for evaluation of complex voiding dysfunction
    Laparoscopic Partial Nephrectomy

    Laparosopic / Robotic Radical Prostatectomy
