Visit our list of orthopedic doctors, sports medicine doctors and general practitioners (GPs) here.

As Urbanrehab is predominantly a musculoskeletal and orthopedic physiotherapy and rehabilitation group, we work closely with orthopedic doctors, sports medicine doctors and general practitioners (GPs)…and many of our patients often ask us about who is a good doctor to visit for their condition. With that, we’ve decided to create two pages dedicated to such questions, firstly, this page which explains generally about orthopedic surgery and secondly, we list the doctors available in Singapore.

Orthopedic surgery or orthopedics (also often known or spelled as orthopaedic surgery and orthopaedics) is the branch of surgery concerned with conditions that involve the human musculoskeletal system. Our musculoskeletal system is the system where our muscles, skeleton, and supporting structures such as joint and soft tissues integrate.

Musculoskeletal conditions include trauma, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors and congenital problems, and orthopedic usually employs two approaches to managing them – surgical and nonsurgical approaches. Physiotherapy, hand therapy and sports massage / deep tissue release therapy are involved in both aspects of surgical and nonsurgical approaches.

For patients who opt for surgical intervention, doctors refer patients for pre-surgical therapy for strengthening; and following therapy, post-therapy helps to accelerate healing and returning to function by exercise physiotherapy, hand therapy and deep tissue release. Hand therapists may be engaged to splint customized braces to protect repaired structures. Nonsurgical approaches almost always involves therapy, where we help patients to manage pain, strengthen and prevent recurrence in a non-invasive approach.

There are a few orthopedic subspecialty training, and they are as followed:

  • Hand surgery
  • Shoulder and elbow surgery
  • Total joint reconstruction (arthroplasty)
  • Pediatric orthopedics
  • Foot and ankle surgery
  • Spine surgery
  • Musculoskeletal oncology
  • Surgical sports medicine
  • Nonsurgical sports medicine
  • Orthopedic trauma

Arthroscopy

The use of arthroscopic techniques has been particularly important, pivotal even for patients, because it helps patients to recover from surgery in just a matter of days rather than weeks to months as required by conventional “open-type” surgery. It is minimally invasive, causing most/majority of orthopedic procedures to be done this way.
