Orthopaedic Surgery Overview

       ORT

Introduction

The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital has senior clinicians who provide care and training aimed at producing good all-rounded orthopaedic surgeons, who do not just perform well in the operating theatre.

There is a wide array of interests and depth in this field that we want to share with you. For the Residency Program, our Collaboration with Tan Tock Seng Hospital under the NHG Sponsoring Institution, will expose you to a wide spectrum of cases and various subspecialties including Trauma & Complex Trauma, Adult Reconstructive Surgery, Spine, Sports Surgery, Foot & Ankle, and Hand & Reconstructive microsurgery.

   ORT3

Our program benefits from a mixture of elements that keep things exciting, from complex trauma cases to the holistic management of chronic diseases like Osteoarthritis. Orthopaedic surgery is not an isolated specialty; complex cases and nature of the practice allows endless opportunities to work and interact closely with colleagues from Sports Medicine, Musculoskeletal Radiology, Vascular Surgery etc, as well as support services from physiotherapists, occupational therapists and podiatrist etc.

Our vibrant learning environment is fostered through many activities. In our program, trainees will be introduced to research methodology early. Close supervision by mentors and continuous assessment will help you to develop your ability to interact with patients and peers as well as increase your surgical skills acquisition.
