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 Henry Chan is famous doctor for orthopaedic surgery. Indonesian community refer him for knee pain so I bring my mother to see Dr Chan in Singapore. He is very good and we like him very much. The clinic is at Mt Elizabeth orchard hospital, near to Paragon and Takashimaya, so very convenient.

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.

I was so thankful a friend recommended Dr. Cheung last year for pain I was experiencing in my knees. His process and level of care were top-notch and I was able to recover quickly without unnecessary medical intervention. When a nagging back injury recently became more severe I returned to Dr. Cheung and have been delighted with the results. HIGHLY recommended.

I had a bad bucket handle tear on my right knee meniscus and it was impeding my movements and sports. Fortunately I got to referred to Dr Alan Cheung, who was very patient and understood my issues, as he does sports himself. So we opted for a partial menisectomy on my right knee, which he performed surgery on. Then he followed up with a referral to a good physiotherapist for post-surgery rehabilitation. Only after 3 months, I regained back full function of my right knee. Thanks doc!

Can't thank Dr Alan Cheung enough for helping me through a horrific rib fracture and helping me transition back into training smoothly and gradually back into competition.

Being a ringside doctor and martial arts practitioner himself, Dr Alan was highly knowledgeable about my sport, and provided the best advice (along with recovery plan) to help get my career back on track. Very personable by nature, Dr Alan also made much effort to check in on my recovery now and then.

If you are a professional/amateur athlete or weekend warrior even, I would highly recommend him should you have any sporting injury concerns

I had my ACL surgery done by Dr Alan and I am completely blown away by how quickly recovery has been, post-op. He possesses a wealth of experience working with combat Athletes and I believe that this has allowed me to experience more efficient healing. Two weeks on, I was able to start walking again without the aid of my crutches and I look forward to getting back on the mats to train competitively, and much stronger too. Completely exceeded my expectations, thank you so much for the job well done.

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.

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.

Very pleasant experience. Had a keyhole surgery, one on each shoulder during my NS days after years of recurrent dislocations. Explained things clearly and simply without leaving out too much information. After his surgeries over at NTFH and after the nerve block wore off it hurt like mad but that was how I knew he did an amazing job. I played rugby for 3 years having my shoulder pop out of the socket at least once each match. I've had 2 seasons at the uni level now with my shoulders solid as a rock and not dislocating anytime soon. Dr Bernard, best orthopedic surgeon.

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.
