How our Orthopaedist treats

Initial consultation will help to diagnose the specific root cause for the knee pain. Our specialist through his years of experience will use different techniques to determine if such pain is serious. In addition, MRI or CT scan can give a clearer idea of the situation. Therefore our doctors are capable to analyze the reading of the films. In less serious conditions, medications coupled with our in-house physio can aid the recovery. In complex cases, our specialist is able to perform Knee Replacement Surgery. This is a surgical procedure to resurface a knee damaged by arthritis. Patient undergo this surgery can also expect to discharge within 1 to 5 days.

Knee pain conditions recovery

According to a study in a journal of the Academy of Medicine of Singapore, 96% of knee replacements performed in Singapore are caused by osteoarthritis. Among these, 4.8% who receive total knee replacements are below the age of 50. Therefore the trend is likely to increase. So by using minimally invasive surgery and robotic technology, it is now possible to perform a partial knee replacement that resurfaces only one compartment of the knee. Because of this treatment, most patients are able to return to sports.
