Dr. Tan Chin Kwong, Alvin is an Orthopaedic Surgeon with an interest in partial, total, revision, and robotic hip and knee replacements. Dr. Tan formerly practiced in Khoo Teck Puat Hospital (KTPH), where he served as Deputy Head of Department and holds the position of Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, NUS.

He is a strong advocate for evidence-based, value-driven care.He developed the Enhanced Recovery after Surgery (ERAS) Program for patients undergoing joint replacement in KTPH, which includes an effective multimodal pain management regime, same-day rehabilitation, and early ambulation, resulting in expedited hospital discharges. Together with his team, he developed a novel screening tool to identify patients who require post hospitalisation care and posters detailing this tool have been accepted at local and international conferences.

In his pursuit of improving patient outcomes and recovery after total hip replacement, Dr. Tan has adopted minimally invasive anterior hip approaches such as the Direct Anterior Approach (DAA) and Anterolateral Supine Approach (ALS). He has received training from renowned experts in the field, and in turn, he has conducted courses to teach these techniques to other surgeons in the ASEAN region.

In addition, Dr. Tan has also led the implementation of minimally invasive computer navigation and robotic knee replacement at KTPH, further advancing surgical precision and patient outcomes.
