Dr Tiow-Hoe Goh, FRACP, DDU, FACC, FSCAI, FCSANZ, first came to Melbourne after obtaining his medical degree in 1969 from the University of Malaya, Malaysia. He trained as a Cardiologist at the Royal Children’s Hospital, and subsequently sub-specialised in Paediatric Cardiology. He introduced the M-Mode Echocardiography and founded the echocardiography department at the Royal Children’s hospital.
As a pioneer in his field, Dr Goh introduced several interventional techniques to Australia such as the balloon angioplasty of pulmonary valve stenosis, aortic valve stenosis and recoarctation of the aorta, 2D and colour flow Doppler studies, Rashkind patent ductus arteriosus (PDA) devices for PDA closure, coil occlusion of PDA and the use of the Rashkind umbrella device for closure of muscular ventricular septal defects. In 1998, Dr T.H. Goh pioneered the use of Amplatzer muscular ventricular septal defect (VSD) for closure of muscular VSD.
To date, he has 40 years of experience in the field of Cardiology, and served as Deputy Director of Cardiology at the Royal Children’s Hospital for 34 years. He is listed in The Leading Physicians of The World, a subsidiary of the International Association of HealthCare Professionals. He is also a published author in various medical journals.
Above all, he is a caring and reassuring doctor that takes good care of his patients. Parents often feel lost when they first find out that their child has a heart condition. Dr Goh always takes the time to speak to parents and give them his reassurance.
Dr Goh raised his family in Melbourne with the help of his wife, who is also a doctor. They have three grown children and 7 young grandchildren (and more coming!) that they dote on.
