Dr Ong Kee Leong does not need much introduction. He has certainly made a name in the field of orthopaedics with his experience of over 15 years and his exceptional bedside manner. 

We think it’s only apt to include him in our list of the best orthopaedic specialists in Singapore. A service that scores a perfect rating on Google Reviews is always a good sign.

Dr Ong holds that sports, not laughter, is the best medicine. As he is a known sports enthusiast, like-minded people feel affinity towards him, making him their preferred specialist.  

Dr Ong is also famous for not making patients wait for long. If it’s your initial consultation, then you can expect to be seen immediately. 

The initial consultation is long though. To come up with an accurate and safe treatment plan that truly fits a patient’s need, Dr Ong takes his time to get to know the patient.

One testimony stood out for us. The patient shared how Dr Ong asked him about his future goals regarding playing sports again as well as his budget during consultation. 

We love that Dr Ong sees his patients as people with dreams and limitations, not simply a means to show off his skillset. Many current patients of Dr Ong look at him as a friend. 

They claim that the doctor is approachable and patient. He actually gives out his number to patients so that they can reach out to him for any concern. 

What we find even better is that he replies within the day. If you have an orthopaedic concern, you know whom to call.

Pros

  • Expertise in sport-injury management
  • Short waiting time for initial consultation
  • Tailored treatment plan
  • Can be reached easily
  • Accepts medical insurance

Cons

  • High rates for patients without insurance
  • Closed on Sundays

Rumour is Dr Henry Chan is the orthopaedic specialist for all ages. Well, we can see why as his clinic (HC Orthopaedic Surgery) offers orthopaedic geriatic care and treats child injuries.

With Dr Henry at the helm, HC Orthopaedic Surgery is able to care for patients with all types of  

orthopaedic problems. Those in need of knee and hip replacements are especially welcome.

What we think gives Dr Henry an edge is his special interest in using the latest technologies in his procedures. This includes robotic surgery and pinless computer navigation.

We talked to several patients of Dr Henry. And we found out that HC Orthopaedic Surgery meets its promises of reliability, consistency, precision, healing and care.

In particular, some patients we interviewed shared how supportive and thorough Dr Henry and his staff were regarding post-surgery care. We all know how this is crucial to full recovery.

Seeing as how Dr Henry potentially tops the list of my patients, opening a few hours during Sundays can benefit the clinic. The 24-hour hotline is a good compromise though.

We find it inconvenient that walk-in patients will not be entertained for consultation, however. Another thing we are not fond of is that the clinic only accepts selected insurance policies.  

Pros

  • Provides geriatric orthopaedic care
  • Attends to child injuries
  • Thorough post-surgery care
  • Emergency 24-hour hotline

Cons

  • Mostly accepts only international insurance
  • Greater focus on orthopaedic surgeries
  • Closed on Sundays

3. Dr Alan Cheung – International Orthopaedic Clinic

International Orthopaedic Clinic is a top-ranking orthopaedic clinic in Singapore. And the one and only orthopaedic specialist here is Dr Alan Cheung. 

Dr Alan is an expert in sports-related injuries. Many athletes seek him out for fractures, sprains, and torn ligaments and tendons, among others. 

Those suffering from serious injuries also turn to Dr Alan often. As athletes are a special breed, we get that they want the help of a doctor who is also a professional athlete.

Dr Alan continuously competes in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. He definitely knows how critical reduced downtime is for athletes who want to stay in the game. 

The use of robotic surgery means improved surgical outcomes and reduced downtime.

Among the orthopaedic specialists in Singapore, we learned that Dr Alan is one of the few who are skilled in advanced robotic surgical techniques such as Makoplasty, Navio and Robodoc.

Of course, the clinic also accepts non-athletic patients. The doctor’s experience in managing bone cancer comes in handy. 

Apart from him coming across as knowledgeable and empathic, a number of patients praised Dr Alan to us for being easygoing. 

Anyway, with all the positive reviews and media, we are not surprised that patients want to be treated by Dr Alan. Walk-in patients are not always entertained though. 

Pros

  • Performs robotic surgery
  • Reduced downtime for surgeries
  • Experience in bone cancer management

Cons

  • Doesn’t always accept walk-ins
  • High rates for patients without insurance
  • Closed on Sundays

4. Dr Tan Chyn Hong – The Orthopaedic Centre

The Orthopaedic Centre is recognised for its first-rate and competitive orthopaedic services provided by some of the most experienced orthopaedic specialists in Singapore. 

Dr Tan Chyn Hong is part of this great team. And his specialisation is in surgeries for shoulder, elbow and knee. 

In addition, Dr Tan was the first surgeon in Singapore to perform implantless arthroscopic rotator cuff shoulder surgery. 

At present, he supervises a group of orthopaedic surgeons as well as sports physicians and therapists. Yes, we again included an orthopaedic specialist serving professional athletes.

Among the patients cared for by Dr Tan, a few we came across were basketball players and martial artists. With contact sports, injuries are inevitable, so that was unsurprising. 

The patients we interviewed claimed that Dr Tan’s approach results in less pain and quick recovery. So, they were able to return to the sports they love sooner than later. 

As Dr Tan works with physicians and therapists, his patients receive comprehensive post-surgery care. 

What we are not so happy about are the rates. The Orthopaedic Centre is one of the biggest clinics for orthopaedic needs, so the hefty price tag may not come as a surprise. 

Nevertheless, if you are a rich injured professional athlete who cannot wait to be removed from the injured list, then Dr Tan is a good choice.

Pros

  • Specialises in shoulder, elbow and knee surgeries 
  • Focused on professional athletes
  • Quicker recovery

Cons

  • Expensive 
  • Closed on Sundays

5. Dr Sean Ng – Ardmore Orthopaedic Clinic

If you want an all-around orthopaedic specialist, then we introduce Dr Sean Ng, the head of the Ardmore Orthopaedic Clinic. He performs a wide range of orthopaedic surgeries.

Among the orthopaedic specialists in our list, Dr Sean has the longest experience. With around 20 years under his belt, he is practised in general orthopaedic and trauma surgery.

Yet his focus is not on sports injuries. His interest is in foot and ankle surgeries. 

Specifically, Dr Sean treats common foot and ankle conditions and manages and corrects deformities. What we like is that he does minimally invasive surgery as well.

Such an option is very ideal for anyone who is apprehensive of getting a surgery. If you have bunions, clawed toes, unstable ankle and chronic heel pain, then Dr Sean is probably a good option.

Also worth noting is that a number of his patients who had minimally invasive surgeries were pleased because of the minor scarring. That’s a consideration if you’re sensitive to the cosmetics of procedures.

Anyway, one of the promises of Ardmore Orthopaedic Clinic is transparent pricing. We actually have not heard of any complaints about hidden charges.

In addition, patients’ needs are put first. We are happy to let you know that Dr Sean and his staff are experienced in pain management and physiotherapy. 

When a surgery is the last resort, Dr Sean does not recommend it. We like that he doesn’t push for it although he can perform the surgery and do it well, too. 

Pros

  • More than 20 years of experience
  • Performs minimally invasive surgeries
  • Transparent rates

Cons

  • Closed on Sundays

Orthopaedic and Neurology Clinic is a facility that provides clients with an extensive range of treatments that are ideal for treating and resolving musculoskeletal injuries and other body pain concerns. With over 50 years of experience in the field, their experts are able to bring theirs over 20 years of practice in the field in every treatment that they do for clients.

We like that their customer service is friendly and accommodating to ensure that clients can be comfortable when it comes to expressing their concerns and queries about the treatments that they intend to do.

Furthermore, they also accommodate and accept a wide range of insurance coverage to assure clients that their services are not only of quality but also made more affordable with their insurance.

Note though that they do not have packages or rates readily available on their website so clients may need to inquire with them about this beforehand.

Nonetheless, with their convenient booking feature, highly specialized doctors, and adequately equipped facilities, we highly recommend them to clients in the area looking for reliable and valuable orthopedic services near them.

Pros

  • Over 50 years of practice in the field
  • Accommodating and assistive customer service

OrthoKau is a local orthopaedic practice that specializes in hip and knee conditions.

For over 15 years, they’ve been looking after patients of all ages and conditions.

What we like about them is their patient-centered ethos. They understand that each patient presents differently, so they recognize that treatments should be tailored to each one.

What’s more is that they try to simplify everything for their patients and customize solutions based on individual needs.

While they specialize in hip and knee conditions, we like that they’re also part of Synergy Orthopaedic Group, which is an established group of expert surgeons in various subspecialties.

All in all, we highly recommend!

Pros

  • More than 15 years of experience
  • Specializes in hip and knee condiions
  • Patient-centered, tailored treatments

Cons

  • Closed on Sundays
