Dr. Henry Chan completed his studies at the National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2004 then proceeded for his advanced surgical training in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery in 2009. In the same year, he obtained his membership at the Royal College of Edinburgh and his Master of Medicine (Orthopaedic Surgery) in 2009. He finished his advanced surgical training and became a certified fellow in Orthopaedic Surgery in the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in 2013. The next year, Dr. Chan clinched the Human Manpower Development Program (HMDP) scholarship from the Ministry of Health Singapore and finished his Revision Hip and Knee arthroplasty fellowship at the Helios Endo-Klinik in Hamburg, Germany.
Dr. Henry Chan has since been leading the Joint Replacement Unit in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery in Tan Tock Seng Hospital and completed above 1000 joint replacements. He has garnered immense respect and as a result been invited as an instructor for basic and advanced joint replacement courses in neighbouring countries including Malaysia, Vietnam, Thailand, and India.
Beyond joint replacements, his interest lies in computer-assisted joint replacement surgeries such as Total Knee Replacement, Total Hip Replacement, Unicompartmental Knee Replacement, pinless computer navigation, patient-specific instrumentation (PSI) and robotic surgery (Makoplasty).
Outside his clinical practice, Dr Henry Chan is also actively involved in the training of the next generation of doctors and orthopaedic surgeons in Singapore. He is appointed Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine and a core faculty member of the orthopaedic residency programme at the National Healthcare Group.
