A SURGEON'S NO BS GUIDE TO BACK PAIN TREATMENTS IN SINGAPORE THAT WORK
February 1st, 2018

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.

MEET THE EXPERT: DR HENRY CHAN
August 13th, 2018

Meet Dr Henry Chan, an orthopaedic surgeon who is very passionate about getting his patients moving and enjoying active lifestyles again. He has performed more than 5,000 knee surgeries till date to help his patients put the spring back in their steps!

He knew that he wanted to go into the field of Orthopaedics very early on in his career because he liked the hands on and 'instant' aspect of it. He finds it very rewarding when he retifies a broken bone, straightens a crooked leg, and sees his patients walking freely without pain after surgery. 

Watch the video to find out how has technology changed the field of Orthopaedics and what makes him happy.
