Orthopaedic Surgery


Having problems with muscular aches or injuries to foot, ankle, hand or spine? These conditions often cause pain, weakness and discomfort as well as restrict physical activities and daily living.

The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery provides a comprehensive range of specialised care for musculoskeletal conditions and injuries in children. Working with a multidisciplinary team, the surgeons use the most advanced and innovative approaches and techniques to treat these conditions.
