Some Conditions

Diabetes is an epidemic worldwide and Singapore has not been spared. With more and more people having diabetes, wounds, ulcers and infections in the lower limb and foot are increasingly common. Management in these cases would usually involve a careful examination of the foot for any correctable causes for the wound, management of any infection and good overall control of the diabetes and any associated complications. More and more, people do not accept an amputation as a solution, and reconstruction and rebalancing of the foot can be helpful to salvage or save the foot from an amputation in selected cases. Corrective surgery can also be a good option to aid in ulcer and wound healing particularly in chronic non-healing wounds.

Depending on the location, severity and length of time since the injury, treatment options will vary. Surgery for acute tears Acute tears of the Achilles tendon can be managed with a cast or cast boot together with rehabilitation. However, a repair can possibly restore function more quickly, give more power in the healed tendon and also likely have less chances of a rerupture or retear. Previously, the main concern with a repair would be wound complications as a relatively long wound would be required for repair. Dr Tan has been using a minimally invasive technique for repairs for many years now and this has so far given a reliable repair without wound complications. With small wounds for the repair, this also allows faster rehabilitation without…

Tears of the meniscus can occur acutely, or be degenerative in nature. An acute tear frequently has an underlying episode of trauma or injury. A chronic tear or degenerative tear can occur without any specific injury or after a minor episode of trauma. In both situations, there would be swelling (effusion) of the knee and knee pain usually localized to the site of the meniscus tear. Currently, it is common to get an MRI of the knee to confirm the tear. Once a symptomatic tear is confirmed, arthroscopic treatment of the meniscus tear is a good option, combined with a rehabilitation program usually involving a physiotherapist.
