Overview

Dr Thng completed his Orthopaedic Surgery training and chose to pursue his sub-speciality in the spine and spinal surgery. He was awarded his 2nd HMDP from MOH to spend 1 year to study spine surgery in the University of Calgary, both from the neurosurgical and orthopaedics spine divisions, under Dr John Hurlbert and Dr Richard Hu respectively.

On returning to Singapore in 2001 he was involved in a busy orthopaedic practice and also set up the spine service in Changi General Hospital (CGH). Based on hospital OTM records from 2003-2013 he performed over 3000 operations and over 1200 spine procedures, both open and minimally invasive. An internal audit for geriatric patients (>70years) from Jun 2010 to June 2012 revealed that Dr Thng had performed 85 spine operations (for 70-91 years old) with outcome scores compatible with international standards. Perhaps in recognition of his work, Dr Thng has also been invited and has demonstrated live spine surgical and operative skills in China, India, Vietnam and Malaysia since 2004. Some of the procedures demonstrated include minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS), cervical disc arthroplasty (e.g. website: healthcare.financialexpress.com /201003/ market19.shtml), posterior cervical and lumbar surgery and anterior thoracolumbar surgery.

He received a 3rd HMDP award in 2009 to spend 1 month fellowship in spine in Massachusetts General Hospital, Harvard University in Boston, USA.
