Bringing you the highest level of orthopaedic care by a specialized team of professional doctors, nurses and administrators.

About Us –
Centre for Sports and Shoulder and Elbow Surgery - Centre for Orthopaedics

The Centre provides consultations at clinics located in Mount Elizabeth Medical Centre, Parkway East Medical Centre and Mount Elizabeth Novena Specialist Centre. The Centre aims to provide easy access to quality and comprehensive care for athletes at all levels, and for any patient, who wants to return to his previous level of activity.

We provide multi-disciplinary care for both the physical and emotional welfare of our patients, through a quality team of health care professionals – surgeons, sports physicians, physiotherapists, orthotists and podiatrists. Rehabilitation is an integral and vital part of our comprehensive approach to quality care for the injured. As such, we work closely with the physiotherapists to ensure that our patients return rapidly to their former level of activity.

We provide prompt and comprehensive consultations and surgical care for a variety of sports injuries and joint problems. Some of these conditions include:

  • Knee meniscus, ligament and cartilage injuries
  • Kneecap (patella) instability and pain
  • Tendinitis and muscle injuries around the knee and lower limb
  • Shoulder instability and dislocations
  • Rotator cuff tendon tears of the shoulder
  • Shoulder biceps conditions
  • Elbow instability and dislocations
  • Elbow stiffness and contractures
  • Tendinitis around the elbow – Tennis Elbow, Golfer’s Elbow
  • Hip labral tears and femoro-acetabular impingement
  • Tendon and muscle issues around the hip
  • Ankle sport injuries including sprains, instability and tendinitis
  • Arthritis/Degenerative conditions of the knee, shoulder, hip and elbow
  • Fractures of the knee, shoulder, hip and elbow

We utilize the latest techniques and recent advances in the treatment of these conditions. We perform most of these surgeries through key-hole or arthroscopic techniques to minimize pain and downtime from sport, for the athlete or patient.
