Getting A Knee Replacement In Singapore – A Patient's Journey

youtube video preview

Meet Mdm Pan Mei Yun, a Singaporean lady who's suffered from knee pain for more than a decade. 

10 years ago, she often experienced numbness and pain in both her hands and legs. After a thorough medical examination, she was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis.

At times, the pain was so crippling that she found it difficult to go about with her daily tasks. She could hardly walk to the toilet, let alone shower while standing. She had to be seated on a chair when she took her bath. 

Mdm Pan shares her story with DxD in this exclusive feature. 

Meet The Patient is a new DxD series that shares heart-warming patient journeys and stories. If you have a patient story that you’d like to share, give our editorial team a shout: jeeyan@dxd.com.sg
