Best Orthopaedic Specialists in Singapore | Best of Health 2023

If you’re experiencing chronic issues in your bones, muscles, joints, and ligaments, chances are, you need help from a licensed and experienced orthopaedic specialist. Orthopaedic specialists may treat conditions caused by injury, age-related wear and tear or congenital in nature. These range from bone fractures, arthritis, tendinitis, bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, scoliosis and more. Depending on your case, the doctor may employ rehabilitative procedures or physical therapy to treat the issue and prescribe medications as well as beneficial exercise programs tailored for your condition. In severe cases, surgery is usually the last option for correcting the problem. Do you need to see an orthopaedic specialist? This article summarises a few suggestions from the best orthopaedic specialists in Singapore.

Dr. Alan Cheung (International Orthopaedic Clinic)

Dr Alan Cheung orthopaedic specialist

Dr. Alan Cheung is one of the few surgeons in Asia who had the opportunity to receive training for the MAKOplasty, Robodac and Navio robotic surgical systems. Equipped with this expertise, he specialises in robotic orthopaedic surgery for hip and knee replacement procedures. This is ideal for professional athletes who need quick recovery times to get back on track as soon as possible. Of course, though, robotic surgery isn’t just for athletes, but for everyone who hopes to reduce significant downtime post-surgery.

Aside from sports injury, Dr. Cheung is also experienced in monitoring and caring for patients with bone cancer.

Dr. Andrew Lim (National University Hospital)

Dr Andrew Lim orthopaedic specialist

Orthopaedic surgeries can cost hefty prices for the procedure itself plus consultation fees, hospitalisation and prescribed medications. But because National University Hospital (NUH) is a public hospital, patients are entitled to subsidised treatment, surgery, and medications. If budget is a little tight, you can consider consulting Dr. Andrew Lim, senior consultant for the Division of Paediatric Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine & Surgery at NUH. He caters to both children and adults. His specialisations include musculoskeletal oncology, shoulder and elbow surgery and spine surgery among many others. The downside, however, is that booking an appointment at NUH is a bit slow—it can take several weeks. So, it’s not suitable for those cases that need urgent surgery.
