Dr. Ng graduated from the University of Hong Kong in 1995. He specializes in hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery and liver transplantation. He joined the Department of Surgery, The University of Hong Kong since 1996. He went into private practice from 2010 to 2016, during which he continued to pursue himself in clinical services, teaching and knowledge exchange. He rejoined the department since August 2016 and he is currently part-time Clinical Associate Professor in the Division of Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic surgery and Liver transplantation of the department.

He is also honorary treasurer of International Society of Digestive Surgery.

Dr. Ng’s main research interests are in the field of surgical management of hepato-biliary-pancreatic cancer and liver transplantation. His clinical research interest in liver cancer ranges from surgical management for early cancer to local ablation therapy for advanced disease. He was awarded the postgraduate degree of Doctor of Philosophy on the study of local ablation therapy in animal models and the degree of Master of Surgery on the study of clinical applications of radiofrequency ablation for liver cancer. In 2002, he pioneered the application of radiofrequency ablation in the management of early liver cancer and he led a single-center randomized trial of hepatic resection versus radiofrequency ablation for early hepatocellular carcinoma, which was completed in 2007 with significant clinical results. Dr. Ng is also one of the few transplant surgeons who can independently perform various types of liver transplant, including adult-to-adult living donor liver transplantation (LDLT) using right liver graft with middle hepatic vein or left liver graft using middle hepatic vein, adult-to-pediatric living donor liver transplantation, deceased donor liver transplantation (DDLT) and split-liver liver transplantation. Till now, his personal series of LDLT and DDLT is over 600 and 150, respectively. In 2009, he pioneered the issue of MELD exception policy for patient with T2 hepatocellular carcinoma in Hong Kong and he was involved in the first donor-exchange living donor liver 3 transplantation in Hong Kong.

Dr. Ng is the author of over 80 peer-reviewed articles in international journals, including Annals of Surgery, British Journal of Surgery, Radiology and Hepatology.
