My nephew had an accident in school during recess. A boy was running across the canteen and collided into my nephew. Luckily he did not hit his head and managed to break his fall with his hands. He seemed ok at first but later complained that his wrist hurt. On a friend's recommendation we decided to see an orthopaedic surgeon and brought him to see Dr Henry Chan. Good thing we went to see Dr Chan because it turned out to be a mild displacement and fracture We didn't realise back then but it could otherwise have affected his growth. Luckily my nephew is perfectly fine now and he actually remembers Dr Chan very fondly. I recommend Dr Chan for child injuries because he is jovial, calm and very good with kids!
Ballroom dancing is my hobby. I started after my children had grown up and at first it was just to past the time. Very soon I got to meet many many friends and in the blink of an eye 10 wonderful years of dancing passed.
The pain started with slight ache at the right especially when the knee is bent for a long time. Slowly it became a bad pain that wouldn't go away. Even climbing stairs also pain. I did acupuncture, tried tui na and visited a chiropractor but no help.
Finally the pain became very bad and I had to stop dancing to rest. I got to know Dr Henry through a friend's recommendation, thinking that I may have to replace my knees. I find Dr Henry to be very knowledgeable and kind. He explained that I have osteoarthritis or cartilage degeneration. Instead of knee surgery, he suggested that I try a less invasive viscosupplement injection first.
Of course I was sceptical initially because I had already tried many treatments, but I am so glad I trusted him. After the injection, my knee pain improved. These days I still enjoy my dancing, but I also learned to take it easy. Thank you Dr Henry for allowing an old lady like me to continue with her hobby. I will introduce all my dancing kaki to you ok! Best wishes to you doctor!
What do TCM practitioners, Orthopaedic surgeons, Sport medicine doctors, physiotherapists and chiropractors have in common? That's right, they all see Singaporeans with back pain.
Back pain treatment is a multi-million dollar industry in Singapore - clearly, the problem afflicts many of us. It's no wonder that tons of marketing money is poured into targeting back pain sufferers.

Hi Green Arrow,
It's actually not uncommon to have bow legs in this part of the world, it's probably in our genes that we have a little bit of bow-leggedness in the Asian populations. It's also quite common in those elite athletes when they start training at a very young age because ...
Age is just a number, if your mom has been taking care of herself well. The average life span for a Singaporean woman is now 86 years old, according to the Singapore Census 2010.
I’ve known patients who are not even 40 years old, and have lost 3 limbs (both legs and right hand) due t...
Thank you for your questions. I agreed with both Dr. Sean and Dr. Dinesh that your pain is likely "discogenic", meaning that it is coming from the disc, which is the cushion in between the bones. There are also a spectrum of a "slipped disc", only when the slipped disc is...
Hi SFW, Thank you for your question. Persistent severe pain after a right knee replacement is abnormal especially when her other knee replacement was doing fine.
I'd strongly advise you bring your grandmom for a checkup and we'll need to do a thorough investigations including X rays, bloo...
Hi, healing of a meniscus depends on the location, the size, the pattern and the chronicity, however, in general, the healing of a meniscus tear is typically not good.
Hence it depends on your symptoms, if you only have mild ache with no swelling on prolonged running, then I will suggest conservati...
