Sports Surgery Centre
Quantum Orthopaedics is a sports orthopaedic clinic in Singapore that brings together a unique team of a specialist orthopaedic surgeon, athletic trainers, physicians and physical therapists to collaboratively provide the best possible medical care for athletic injuries and illnesses. As we resume our sports activities during this pandemic, injuries can easily arise from gym, tennis, HIIT, golf, dance and more.
Due to the physically demanding nature of sports, sports injuries are unfortunately common. These injuries can typically be classified into acute and chronic injuries: acute injuries occur suddenly due to falls or direct impact; while chronic injuries develop gradually from the overuse of certain body parts. In such cases, consulting a sports medicine doctor or sports surgeon at a sports surgery clinic in Singapore may provide the best possible outcome in terms of treatment and recovery.
Other Conditions Managed By Our Orthopaedic Clinic
Orthopaedic conditions are wide-ranging in both type and severity. While some mild conditions may resolve on their own with sufficient rest, most are best managed by an orthopaedic specialist to ensure safer and more effective recovery. Common causes of orthopaedic conditions include genetics, trauma, and disease. If you’re experiencing symptoms of an orthopaedic condition (such as pain, swelling, limited range of motion, visible deformity, etc.), seek prompt attention by an experienced orthopaedic doctor. At our orthopaedic clinic, Dr James Tan is an experienced sports orthopaedic surgeon in Singapore who specializes in treating a full range of orthopaedic conditions and sport injuries with a customised and compassionate approach.
