About HC Chang Orthopaedic Surgery

Orthopaedics is the medical specialty that focuses on injuries and diseases of your body’s musculoskeletal system. It includes your bones, joints, ligaments, tendons, muscles and even your nerves: basically all the essential parts of your body for you to move, work and enjoy your life.
Orthopaedic surgeons use both surgical and nonsurgical means to treat musculoskeletal trauma, spine diseases, sports injuries, degenerative diseases, infections, tumors, and congenital disorders.
As an active sportsperson, you would have had your share of orthopaedic injuries. Not only will these injuries (and other conditions for that matter) impede your ability to perform at optimal level in your chosen sport, they will also impact the quality of your daily living.
The sooner you get your orthopaedic issues handled, the faster you can get back to enjoying sports and life!

Frequently Asked Questions about Orthopaedic Specialist

Do Orthopaedic Doctors do Surgery?

Yes. In Singapore, an orthopaedic doctor typically refers to a qualified orthopaedic surgeon, but it doesn’t always mean that surgery is the only option available. An orthopaedic specialist can also rely on a range of non-surgical techniques and minimally invasive procedures to treat injuries to your knees, shoulders, and other parts.

What Can I Expect At My First Visit With An Orthopaedic Surgeon?

You will be allowed to tell your Orthopaedic Surgeon the issues that are bothering you. The doctor will obtain a detailed history of your presenting complaint, and this will be followed by a detailed physical examination. Your doctor will then explain what he thinks the problem maybe and he will likely recommend some investigations such as x-rays or MRI scans if these were deemed necessary for the diagnosis to be confirmed. Once the diagnosis is confirmed, your doctor will detail out the various treatment options as well as the pros and cons of each treatment option.

Will I Need Surgery To Treat My Pain?

This depends on the diagnosis. Most musculoskeletal injuries can be treated with just medications, physiotherapy and rest. Some Orthopaedic conditions might require surgery and your doctor will explain to you the pros and cons of such treatments.

Can I Continue My Sports Activities If I Am Experiencing Pain (e.g. Shoulder, Knee or Hip Pain)?

It is generally not recommended to continue with sport activities that lead to the injury until the injury has been properly diagnosed and treated. Let pain be a guide for you. Your doctor will guide you to return to your sports. He might recommend alternative sports for you when you are still recovering from a specific sporting injury.
