I have more than 17 years of orthopaedic experience, with particular expertise in key-hole (arthroscopic) surgeries of the Knee, Hip, Shoulder and Ankle. I also sub-specialise in minimally invasive treatment of joint conditions, joint replacements, and fractures. I am experienced in treating wear-and-tear/degenerative problems, and conditions affecting the ligament, meniscus and cartilage.
I have performed complex knee and hip joint replacements for patients up to 90 years old. My techniques allow my patients the benefit of fast return to walking and activity.
I treat my patients using a variety of non-surgical and surgical methods, with my philosophy emphasizing on the individualisation of each patient’s treatment method in order to achieve the best recovery outcomes and in order to meet the patient’s expectations.
I am a graduate of the National University of Singapore, with previous work experience at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham, UK, and renowned centres in the USA under the prestigious American Orthopaedic Association-ASEAN Programme. I am also a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons, a Member of the Singapore Orthopaedic Association, and a Member of the Singapore Medical Association.

My youngest daughter has cerebral palsy and eventually developed scoliosis. She is now 10 years old. Is it curable? She is currently taking muscle injections and physical therapy. Would you recommend we do all of the treatments together or we should pause one to do another?
My right shoulder is red and swelling and it hurts to lift my right arm. I think it started when I began my home work out 4 days ago. I have compressed it with ice, but it doesn’t get better. My son said there is a bump on my deltoid area. Is this serious in your opinion? What examination and therapy should I consider?
My spine hurts when I lay on my back for too long. to relieve the pain, I have to bend my body forward and stretch it. the pain comes back after a few hours though. I am 28 years old. What condition could this be?
My wife fell from the stairs in our house a few days back and knocked her knee. There isn’t any visible injury apart from a slight bulge. When she stands and sits, we can hear a soft cracking sound from it. She says it doesn’t hurt. Could there be a fracture and should we get an x-ray?
