Professor Ng Soon Chye is a Medical Chairman and Fertility Specialist. He is an internationally renowned specialist in the area of reproductive medicine.


In 1982, Professor Ng Soon Chye started Asia’s first in-vitro fertilization program in Singapore, resulting in Asia’s first test-tube baby in May 1983. He developed the first SUZI (subzone insemination) baby in 1989. The technique involved injecting weak sperm directly under the egg’s shell (zona pellucida), enabling fertilization. It was the first micro-injected baby in the world. He performed Asia’s first ICSI baby in 1993, which extends the SUZI technique by injecting sperm directly into the egg.
