Orthopaedic Surgery

Overview

Sports and exercise medicine physicians have extensive education in musculoskeletal medicine, and specialize in the treatment of athletes and other physically active individuals.

Sport Medicine doctors treat injuries such as muscle, ligament, tendon and bone problems, but may also treat chronic illnesses that can affect physical performance, such as asthma and diabetes. 

They also advise on managing and preventing injuries, while advising on clinical physical activity interventions, negating the burden of disease directly attributable to physical inactivity.

Dr Ng is helpful with prescriptions and helps lessen the pain in my lower back. He’s a very friendly and cheerful person to talk to, and he’s also very reassuring. I will be back again in two months to get my supplements.

Dr Thiagarajan Palaniappan, who is known as Dr Raj, is well-loved by my SCC friends and myself. He has done a lot of surgeries and provided care for us. He is also recommended by other doctors when you have knee and sports-related injuries. He is a bit pricey though.

I was attended to by two doctors in the same clinic. The first doctor was good and explained after an x-ray that I had a simple ankle sprain.

Dr Ambrose Yung was the second doctor who saw me. He prescribed me an ankle brace which was loose and he insisted that it fulfills its function, when it obviously did not fit me (I could freely move my ankle in all directions when the brace was on).

Dr Yung came out of his office and helped to put the brace on and hurried into his office again. I felt that he was hurried and unprofessional. I ended up leaving without an ankle brace. He also recommended a compression stocking and a whole lot of painkillers, which I only had to take when required. I felt like he was very profit-oriented. He did not even ask me how much pain I was experiencing before prescribing the painkillers.

I went to see Dr.Kevin Yip for a second opinion about a sports hernia and he was absolutely clueless about it. Could not diagnose it properly and I found myself teaching him about it and prompting him in the right direction. He seemed to want to get rid of me as soon as possible without actually trying to diagnose the problem, and sent me for an ultrasound, which is well known to be quite useless in diagnosing sports hernias.

To be fair, he did say that his specialty is knee and shoulder treatment, and this is in regard to a hip injury. However, when advertising himself as a SPORTS and orthopedic clinic, he should be better equipped to deal with common sports injuries such as a sports hernia.

Overall, I felt that he had no knowledge whatsoever about my condition and was totally unequipped to deal with it. Also, he was very hurried and unprofessional and did not seem to care to listen to what I had to say.

If you are looking to see him about a sports injury, I think he is the wrong person to go to.

ASK DR SEAN NG: HOW TO TREAT BUNIONS

Bunions are a common condition that a lot of Singaporeans suffer from. The malaligned bone is not caused by wearing tight shoes, although that can worsen the condition. Bunions run in families, because foot type (shape and structure) is hereditary, and some types are just more prone to bunions than others.

Dr Sean Ng answered readers' questions on how to treat bunions.

WILL RUNNING HURT YOUR KNEES? (HINT: IT WON'T)

Time and time again, whether you are a seasoned marathoner or the neophyte jogger, you've probably heard this: Running too much will hurt your knees.

As a physiotherapist who runs frequently, I'd be a millionaire if I was given a quarter everytime I was asked, "Physio, will running damage my knees?" or being told, "You're a physio, you should know that running will damage your knees!"

Me: So when do you get your pain?

Patient: When I'm running!

Me: So how does that affect your training?

Patient: I CAN’T RUN!

With so many running events taking place in Singapore over varying distances, there's a running challenge to suit everyone’s level of fitness and training. However, running should be fun, and NOT something that's associated with discomfort.
