About Us –
Centre for Foot and Ankle Surgery

We run clinics in  Mount Elizabeth Novena Specialist Centre, Parkway East Medical Centre and Farrer Park Medical Centre (opening in March 2020) . The Centre for Foot & Ankle Surgery is a one-stop center that caters to the growing number of patients presenting with unique foot and ankle problems in Singapore and the region.

We offer a coordinated and specialized care that centers on a multi-disciplinary approach involving highly trained specialist surgeons, sports physicians, podiatrists, orthotists and physiotherapists.

Patients will have access to the latest and most innovative techniques for the management of their foot and ankle problems. The most appropriate surgical reconstructive techniques and non-surgical modalities will be applied to achieve the best outcome for our patients.

We provide a comprehensive treatment for various foot and ankle disorders. Some of these conditions include:

  • Sports injuries, ankle ligament injuries, repeated ankle sprains

Dr Kannan has extensive experience in reconstructive foot and ankle surgery being one of a very small number of sub specialists in this area in Singapore & the region. He is well published with articles in international peer reviewed journals. His particular research interest is in cartilage regeneration and management of cartilage defects. He did the first successful case of artificial scaffold reconstruction in the ASEAN region for a talus osteochondral defect in 2013.

There are numerous patient resources available for our patients. Our surgeons are also involved in conducting public forums, GP symposiums and workshops and continual medical education through training of our allied health professionals and fellow physicians.

The Centre for Foot & Ankle Surgery is well-poised to be a leading provider of a very specialized service for the local and international population.
