The 5 Best Orthopaedic Specialists in Singapore

The 7 Best Orthopaedic Specialists in Singapore

Specialisation

Not all injuries are the same, so we gathered orthopaedic specialists that provide a wide range of services. Furthermore, we chose those who can assist patients with related injuries to any area.

Solutions & Services

We looked at the different surgeries and post-surgery treatments an orthopaedic clinic offers. We then chose the ones that we believe will be most useful to patients.

Accessibility & Location

An injury limits your ability to perform everyday functions like commuting, so we chose orthopaedic clinics with easily accessible locations to save you the hassle.

Fees & Rates

Most orthopaedic clinics personalise charges depending on the procedure that the patient needs. We rounded up clinics that we believe have the most competitive rates.

Patient Reviews

We listened to what patients had to say about their experiences with their orthopaedic surgeons and gathered the ones that provided the most comfort and support for the injured patients.

Pros

  • Accepts insurances
  • Various clinics available for their services
  • Holistic and professional treatment options

Cons

  • Rates and packages not readily available online

HC Orthopaedic is a facility that provides its clients with customized and quality orthopaedic treatments and surgeries such as hip replacements, back pain management, and fracture treatments to ensure that all concerns of clients will be holistically resolved.

We like that they readily employ specialists in the field who have undergone extensive educational background in the field and received accolades for which to ensure clients will get only the best care fit for their needs.

Aside from this, they readily offer clients a wide plethora of treatment options to further fit the comfort, needs, and lifestyle of the client to offer painless treatments and faster recovery times.

Note though that rates of their services aren’t readily available on their website so interested clients may need to inquire further for more information on this.

Overall, with their diversely knowledgeable and experienced specialists in the field, wide array of recognitions received, and holistic services offered, we highly recommend clients looking for such services to check them out.

Pros

  • Personalised solutions for patients
  • Multi-awarded and fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon
  • Highly accommodating customer service
  • Situated on Mount Elizabeth Hospital premises

Cons

  • Traffic prone area

With a fellowship-trained consultant orthopaedic surgeon at its help, The Bone & Joint Centre (BJC) provides sound medical solutions for a wide range of orthopaedic issues.

Helmed by Dr. Kevin Koo Oon Thien, The Bone & Joint Centre is equipped with over 15 years of experience and special training where musculoskeletal injuries are involved.

If you are dealing with foot or ankle injuries, we recommend Dr. Kevin Koo at The Bone & Joint Centre. Notably, he was the former director of the Foot and Ankle Service at Singapore General Hospital – plus points for credentials in our books!

Whether it’s only an ankle sprain or a more complicated deformity, we like that The Bone & Joint Centre and its specialists have the expertise and tools for a personalised recovery plan.

We also find it noteworthy that Dr. Kevin Koo’s practice has been recognised and awarded by various medical institutions in and outside Singapore. Because of this recognition, patients are guaranteed to receive expert service.

Additionally, The Bone and Joint Centre also specialises in joint replacement and sports and dance injuries — for any joint and skeletal structure of your body. Whether it’s your shoulders, hip, or wrist, we trust that The Bone and Joint Centre can patch it up.

Another great thing we found about The Bone & Joint Centre is that its clinic takes residence at Mount Elizabeth Hospital. This accessible location makes it easier for you to stop at other clinics if you have any other health concerns.

However, this location is also one of its downsides since the area is prone to traffic. Also, since it’s situated within the hospital premises, driving down to The Bone & Joint Centre means you’ll have to share the same parking spaces as other hospital visitors.

Nonetheless, we still highly recommend The Bone & Joint Centre for its expert and considerate, albeit small, team. The staff is also responsive and reassuring, which is great for nervous patients.

Pros

Cons

Beacon Ortho is a clinic that can help people get back on track to doing what they love the most.

We like that they’re able to treat a wide range of conditions of the shoulder, elbow, knee, foot and ankle, as well as hand and wrist.

Their overall goal is to restore function alleviate pain and improve the quality of life of the people that come in to their clinic.

We like that they make use of evidence-based treatments and keep up to date on the latest guidelines and research in their field to provide the best care for their patients.

Their approach also involves collaboration with their patients which is something we think is important and we’re glad that they do it.

The staff at their clinic and all the doctors show that they care about each patient and are attentive to their needs. They’re also generous with sharing their knowledge to keep patients in the loop when it comes to their treatment.

We highly recommend!

4. Dr. Sean Ng, Dr. Chong Xue (Ardmore Orthopaedic Clinic)

Pros

  • Immediate and sustainable treatment
  • Has two resident orthopaedic specialists with distinct areas of expertise
  • Offers screening packages inclusive of consultation and screening fees
  • Accessible via three branches

Cons

  • Generally pricey rates
  • Regular office hours are divided into two shifts on weekdays

Ardmore Orthopaedic Clinic doesn’t just provide expert orthopaedic treatments for its patients. It also ensures that its solutions are sustainable and enduring, an aspect that we like most.

Another thing we appreciate about Ardmore Orthopaedic Clinic is the comprehensive care. From the beginning of your screening to the final steps of the recovery program, it gives a detailed and thorough service.

While Ardmore Orthopaedic Clinic specialises in general orthopaedic and trauma surgery, its two resident orthopaedic specialists have their own particular fields of practice. 

Dr. Sean Ng, the specialist for foot and ankle injuries, was a former Medical Board of Singapore General Hospital member. The other orthopaedic specialist is Dr. Chong Xue Ling, the resident expert for shoulder and elbow surgeries.

Aside from its notable specialists, we think that the strongest suit of Ardmore Orthopaedic Clinic is its screening packages. We like that these include the consultation fees and X-Ray and MRI costs.

However, as a private clinic, its rates are typically pricier. Still, we appreciate that its packages are still quite a steal, even though you’ll have to shell out more cash initially. 

We also like that Ardmore Orthopaedic Clinic is easy to reach through its website, WhatsApp, or physical location. For one, it has three branches accessible for its patients, all within the hospital premises.

On the other hand, all its branches follow the general clinic schedule in Singapore, which means it’s closed on Sundays and public holidays. 

Moreover, we think that the consultation time with the specialists is limited since they have shifting schedules.

Nevertheless, many patients we surveyed praised Ardmore Orthopaedic Clinic’s personalised and sustainable treatments. Because of its good track record, we recommend them to anyone looking for long-term recovery programs.

5. Dr. Alan Cheung (International Orthopaedic Clinic)

Pros

  • Sports-specialised services
  • Uses robotic-assisted technology for surgeries
  • Partners up with laboratory and physiotherapists to provide a personalised recovery plan
  • Prompt customer service

Cons

  • Traffic-prone area
  • Relatively high rates

The International Orthopaedic Clinic (IOC) is one of the leading orthopaedic clinics in Singapore. Although, it houses only one orthopaedic specialist on board: Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon Dr. Alan Cheung.

What we find most impressive about Dr. Alan Cheung is that he’s an athlete. Hence, he’s familiar with most sports-related trauma and can provide patients with a prompt diagnosis.

We also appreciate that he recognises each athlete’s and sport’s unique demands and thus partners with specific physiotherapists for different sports to personalise recovery programs for athletes.

Aside from this, International Orthopaedic Clinic also uses robotic-assisted technology to perform surgery and ensure a more accurate outcome.

Additionally, we like how the clinic has associates in different laboratories. If you require CT, MRI scans, or other tests, you will be referred to an affiliated laboratory to save time.

There’s no room for complaints about its customer support, either. We found its staff prompt, friendly, and very accommodating – all the qualities that can make a patient feel more comfortable.

On the downside, it’s situated within Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital’s premises, so driving down to its clinic means you’ll have to share parking spaces with visitors. Additionally, it faces the same traffic-prone disadvantage.

Lastly, as a private clinic, its fees can be heavy on the pocket. We advise consulting your health insurance provider first to check if your policy can cover the clinic’s cost, especially if you’re going in for surgery.

6. Dr. Kannan Kaliyaperumal (Specialist Orthopaedic Centre)

Pros

  • Expertise in foot & ankle injuries
  • Offers both paediatrics and geriatric services
  • Has health insurance partners to make services cheaper
  • Additional branches available to accommodate more patients

Cons

  • Branch clinic only available on Tuesdays and Thursdays
  • Main clinic area prone to heavy traffic

Mount Elizabeth’s Novena Hospital is a centre for talented orthopaedic doctors. Among them is ankle specialist Dr. Kannan Kaliyaperumal, head of the Specialist Orthopaedic Centre.

As far as experience and proficiency go, we admire Dr. Kannan Kaliyaperumal’s dedication to foot and ankle injury treatment. 

For one, he was the founder of the Orthopaedic Department’s Foot and Ankle Division at the Tan Tock Seng Hospital’s (TTSH) Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and the Centre for Foot and Ankle under the Centre for Orthopaedic (CFO).

These are all appealing credentials because it tells us that Dr. Kannan Kaliyaperumal’s expertise in foot and ankle conditions are time-tested and unparalleled.

What we like even more is how Dr. Kannan Kaliyaperumal’s services aren’t just limited to injured adults. He can accommodate children for paediatric treatment and surgery, too.

Furthermore, Specialist Orthopaedic Centre and Dr Kannan Kaliyaperumal can provide solutions for fractures on the elbows, forearms, or even a child’s growth plates. 

Even osteoporosis is within Dr. Kannan Kaliyaperumal’s expertise! Talk about an all-rounder, right?

Nonetheless, despite Dr. Kannan Kaliyaperumal’s expertise, we still found Specialist Orthopaedic Centre not as well-rounded as its competitors.

Since Specialist Orthopaedic Centre is a private clinic located within private hospital premises, we understand why its fees are higher than most.

Its strongest suit is it accepts various health insurance partners. Also, it encourages patients to get Integrated Shield Plans (IP) for cashless service.

Another great thing about this clinic is that it has two branches. 

If Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital’s grounds are inaccessible for you, you can still visit its Parkway branch. However, this particular branch is only available on Tuesdays and Thursdays. 

Moreover, both clinics follow regular clinic hours — which means they’re both closed on Sundays and public holidays.

Pros

  • One-stop services, including laboratory tests
  • Has a huge team of highly qualified orthopaedic specialists
  • Situated in hospital premises
  • Branch clinic available for appointments

Cons

  • Pricey rates
  • Branch clinic accessible via appointments only
  • In-demand services with passive customer service

Singapore Sports and Orthopaedic Clinic (SSOC) is staffed with six globally-trained orthopaedic specialists. Because of their impressive credentials, we can’t recommend just one doctor from here.

From your neck and spine down to your ankle — the orthopaedic specialists from SSOC can take care of your concerns!

As a matter of fact, its broad team of specialists is what we consider to be its greatest advantage. Its available doctors and facilities allow it to be a one-stop medical centre.

And one-stop indeed! SSOC offers treatments and surgeries for various musculoskeletal concerns and injuries and has X-ray and MRI services, among other things.

However, we’re disappointed that they don’t offer discounted packages for patients availing of various services and undergoing treatments.

Furthermore, SSOC’s rates aren’t cheap, either. Its consultation fees also differ depending on your chosen orthopaedic specialist.

Nevertheless, we trust that appointments in SSOC are productive, especially if you need to run a couple laboratory tests after your consultation. Since there are laboratories on the premises, you would save plenty of time going back and forth.

Its location in Gleneagle Hospital premises also affirms its one-stop features. Although, like with others on this list, we consider this a disadvantage because of the limited parking spaces.

Also, its customer service quality evidently suffers because of the high demand and patient volume. You can find its clinics often bustling, so the staff can be a bit too dismissive at times.

We also like that it has a clinic at Paragon Medical Tower. However, this branch only accepts those with an appointment.

Overall, we think the orthopaedic specialists at SSOC are true experts and professionals. However, we feel this place is better for those with health insurance plans that cover the high surgery costs in this clinic.
