Background

Dr David Tan has developed and cultivated his practice in hand surgery over the past 15 years and subscribes to the belief that the hand and wrist is the highest representation of form and function in the human body and meticulous care and rehabilitation of the injured hand and wrist restores an indispensable function to the patient who presents to him.

He has incorporated arthroscopy widely into his practice in the management of wrist problems since developing his interest in that field early in his career and has performed more than 300 wrist arthroscopic interventions to date.

Dr Tan is a firm advocate of the necessity of continued education in medicine and particular to his situation, Hand Surgery. This is embodied not just by his steady mentorship of training surgeons during his stint as Program Director whilst at NUH, but through the numerous courses that he has organized as well as participated in as faculty member over the years.

About

Eugene Lim obtained his basic medical degree and his postgraduate qualification in Internal Medicine in 1990 and 1996 respectively from NUS. After undergoing Rheumatology training at TTSH leading to specialty accreditation in 2000, he left for private practice. He pioneered Rheumatology’s interest in musculoskeletal ultrasound in Singapore, and pursued further training leading to accreditations as a EULAR musculoskeletal ultrasound trainer as well as a WIP-certified interventional pain sonologist.

He considers advanced imaging as an important adjunct to early diagnosis and to guide therapeutic intervention. He applies ultrasound to optimise the management of patients he sees on a daily basis with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS), Psoriatic Arthritis (PsA), Lupus (SLE), Gout and Osteoarthritis (OA). Immunology fascinates him, drawing him to niche areas like Reproductive Immunology and Onco-Immunotherapy immune-related adverse events (irAEs). His current interest is in developing Interventional Pain Management in Rheumatology.

His management philosophy, “Fast and Furious, Treat to Target, with Whatever It Takes”, characterises his approach to the inflammatory arthritides and autoimmune diseases. This has resulted in “cure” (drug-free remission) in some patients with rheumatic diseases, and “full control” (clinical remission) of disease activity or functional pain relief in most if not all patients under his individualised care.

    Dr Wee obtained his M.B.B.S (Bachelor of Medicine & Bachelor of Surgery) degree from the National University of Singapore in 2005, having been placed on the Dean’s list with the Ivan Polunin Gold Medal. He completed his postgraduate specialist training in orthopaedic surgery and obtained his Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (F.R.C.S. Edinburgh) in 2015.

    MEDICAL TRAINING
    Beyond his clinical work, Dr Wee is passionate about medical education. He was appointed as Adjunct Assistant Professor with the Lee Kong Chian School of Medicine (Nanyang Technological University – Imperial College London). He served as the school’s Principal Lead for orthopaedic surgery, overseeing orthopaedic surgery-related education matters across Singapore. He was also a Senior Lecturer at the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine (National University of Singapore). As a Faculty Member of the NHG-AHPL Orthopaedic Surgery Residency Programme, he has been very active in post-graduate medical training.

He is published in peer-reviewed scientific journals and has been invited to be a journal reviewer.

    HIP & KNEE SURGERY AND OXFORD PARTIAL KNEE REPLACEMENT
    Oxford Orthopaedics had its genesis in Dr James Wee’s fellowship experience in complex revision total hip replacement and total knee replacement at Oxford University Hospitals, where he also developed a special interest in the Oxford Partial Knee replacement. He received extensive training in partial knee replacement with the acclaimed inventor-surgeons of the Oxford Partial Knee System, and witnessed first-hand how minimally-invasive partial knee replacement resulted in less pain after surgery, with safer, faster and better recovery compared to total knee replacement. Patients also benefited from a more natural feeling knee with better movement after undergoing partial knee replacement.

    He is skilled in minimally-invasive hip & knee replacement and the use of robotic surgery (Mako, ROSA, NAVIO) to deliver more accurate and better surgical outcomes for his patients. Dr Wee is also experienced in Direct Anterior Approach (DAA) hip replacement surgery, which has the advantages of quicker and better early recovery.

    MINIMALLY INVASIVE FOOT & ANKLE SURGERY
    Having completed his fellowship in Foot & Ankle Surgery at the prestigious Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital in London, Dr Wee’s expertise in Foot & Ankle Surgery encompasses sports injuries, complex trauma, degenerative conditions, and neurological problems. He is well-versed in using arthroscopic (“keyhole”) and minimally invasive surgical (MIS) techniques in the treatment of recurrent ankle sprains, bunions & hammer toes, flat feet (pes planus), high-arched feet (pes cavus), and foot & ankle arthritis.

    LIMB LENGTHENING & LIMB DEFORMITY CORRECTION
    Dr James Wee has a keen interest in the field of Limb Reconstruction Surgery, which includes Limb Lengthening and Limb Deformity correction surgeries. He was trained in using Ilizarov techniques and computer-assisted Hexapod technology at renowned centres in Austria, Italy and South Africa. He has accrued considerable experience in treating complex cases involving short limbs, congenital deformities, severe trauma and deep infections.

    Harnessing his synergistic expertise in both Hip & Knee and Foot & Ankle Surgery, Dr Wee pioneered and led the establishment of the Limb Lengthening and Reconstruction Surgery (LLRS) service in Tan Tock Seng Hospital. This multi-disciplinary service is the first dedicated LLRS unit of its sort in Singapore.

    About

    Dr Petrina Tan is a Senior Consultant Ophthalmologist at Eagle Eye Centre who graduated on the Dean’s List (Pathology) from the National University of Singapore in 2005. She attained Fellowships from the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (FRCSEd) in 2013 and the Academy of Medicine, Singapore. She received the gold medal for being the top candidate in Glaucoma in her final specialist exams.

    She is a recipient of the Health Manpower Development Plan award in 2015 and further advanced her subspecialty training in Oculoplastics, Lacrimal and Orbital surgery in Queen Victoria Hospital, United Kingdom. The hospital is renowned for pioneering plastic reconstructive techniques in the treatment of aircrew members who suffered serious burns during the Battle of Britain in World War II.

    Dr Tan specializes in Oculofacial Plastic Surgery (droopy upper eyelid surgery, lower eyelid eyebags, eyelid malposition), Lacrimal Surgery (management of tearing, nasolacrimal tear duct obstruction, infections) and Orbital Surgery (thyroid eye disease, orbital fractures, orbital tumors).

    Dr Tan brings back with her novel surgical techniques, including scar-less ptosis (droopy eyelid) repair and scar-less tear duct surgery. Asian patients have a greater tendency for post-operative inflammation and scarring. Scar-less surgeries, such as the posterior approach ptosis surgery and endoscopic dacryocystorhinostomy, are therefore particularly useful for Asians. She is committed to achieving good functional results and aesthetic outcomes for her patients.

    She has expertise in managing a range of eye conditions including cataract extraction surgeries with multifocal and premium toric lens implantations, glaucoma screening and treatment, diabetic eye screening, dry eyes and myopia control.

    Keeping up to date with the latest developments in ophthalmology is also a priority for Dr Tan. She is active in research publications and has published widely in the field of rehabilitation of patients with facial nerve palsy, posterior approach ptosis surgery and dermal fillers.

    Background

    Dr Tang’s cardiology training started in National Heart Centre Singapore in 2004. He subsequently further his training in the field of cardiomyopathy (heart muscle disease) and cardiac MRI at The Heart Hospital, University College London Hospitals, UK in 2010.

    After returning from his training, Dr Tang started a dedicated cardiomyopathy clinic at National Heart Centre in 2011. This clinic is currently a national tertiary referral center for cardiomyopathies in Singapore.

    Dr Tang is now a recognized expert in the field of cardiomyopathy. His expertise in echocardiography and cardiac MRI further enhances his work in this field. The cardiomyopathies that he is treating include hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, dilated cardiomyopathy, and restrictive cardiomyopathy. He was the course director of Singapore first cardiomyopathy conference, which was successfully held in 2021. He is also a member of SAF Cardiology Specialist Advisory Board.

    As regular physical training would cause adaptational changes in the heart that may resemble cardiomyopathy, his clinical work also regularly involves recognizing and differentiating exercise-induced cardiac remodeling (athlete heart) from the pathological cardiomyopathies.

    Dr Tang is also one of the leading experts in treating patient with cardiac amyloidosis, a disease that has now gained more attention with the availability of a specific therapeutic agent.

    Despite his advanced expertise, Dr Tang loves to practise general cardiology and firmly believes in primary prevention. Living a healthy lifestyle has always been his key message for patients. Leading by example, he himself is an avid runner and does resistance training regularly.
