Nelson at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Dr Sim was the first urologist in Singapore and Southeast Asia to be certified by the Society of Urologic Oncology in the management of genito-urinary cancers.

He was involved in laparoscopic adrenal and kidney surgery since 2001 and was a key member of the original surgical team that started robotic radical prostatectomy revolution for early prostate cancer in Asia in 2002. He is certified by Intuitive Surgical Inc in Sunnyvale California, USA, to handle the robotic surgical system. In 2007, he introduced ultrasound guided peri-prostatic anaesthesia to minimise discomfort in men undergoing prostate biopsie and in 2009, he introduced robot-assisted partial nephrectomy for small kidney cancers in Singapore. In 2011, robot-assisted radical cystectomy was introduced.
