Overview

Dr. Tho Graduated from the National University of Singapore in 1985 and was then admitted as Fellow to the Royal College of Surgeons (Edinburgh) as well as obtained his Masters Of Medicine(Surgery) in 1989. He then did the Foreign Medical Graduates Examination (FMGEMS), followed suit by his Orthopaedic Surgery Exit Certification Examination in 1995, Fellow to the Academy of Medicine Singapore in 1996. Dr.Tho is also a qualified instructor in Advanced Trauma Life Support.

He is also the recipient of the Kwok Foundation Scholarship grant. Dr. Tho was awarded the Ministry of Health HMDP Scholarship in 1993 to train at the Department of Sports Orthopaedic Surgery, Karolinska Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden. Dr. Tho has been invited as a speaker on many issues related to sports medicines both locally and internationally. He has also done many publications on international and local journals, especially on knee ligament injuries.

Dr Tho is actively involved in the management of professional sportsmen especially among the professional soccer players in the S-League. He is also team physician to the National Soccer Team. Treatment of ligament injuries around the knee, ankle, and shoulder form a big part of the work. Most injuries can be treated non-surgically with medications, injections and physiotherapy. Injections of joint lubricant in the knee or ankle joints can help reduce pain and swelling, allowing many sportsmen and soccer players to get back to competition.

When required, arthroscopic reconstruction or repair of these ligaments will be done. Common arthroscopic procedures include anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, meniscus repair, shoulder joint ligament reconstruction for recurrent dislocation, rotator cuff repair as well as joint debridement of the knee, shoulder, hip, and ankle. Total joint replacement and uni-condylar knee replacements, as well as shoulder and hip replacement surgeries, are done in severely damaged joints in older patients.

Dr Tho is also active in various sports organisation and bodies. He is an avid sportsman himself as well.
