Care at NUH

Orthopaedic Trauma

2024/06/19

Fractures or broken bones are some of the most common types of injuries across all age groups. While many of these injuries are relatively minor and can be treated using casts or splints; certain cases require surgery.

Orthopaedic Trauma

Few hospitals in Singapore match the level of experience in the treatment of broken bones as the Orthopaedic trauma surgeons at NUH. We provide comprehensive management of all fractures, covering the upper extremity and lower extremity, pelvis, acetabulum and other bones and joints, isolated fractures/ dislocations and poly-trauma cases. Our goal is to facilitate a speedy and well-rounded recovery for all our patients. The surgical team is available 24 hours a day, all year round. Patients are admitted to our care via the NUH Emergency Medicine Department, by referral to our Specialist Outpatient Clinic, and from other hospitals and doctors, including General Practitioners (GPs).  

For more complex injuries requiring highly specialised treatment. the Orthopaedic Trauma division provides a dedicated team of fellowship-trained surgeons capable of managing severe and life-threating injuries. Patient care is optimised through the coordination of a multi-disciplinary team of specialists within the departments of Orthopaedic Surgery, General Surgery - Trauma Division, Plastic Surgery, Neurosurgery and Hand & Reconstructive Microsurgery (which provides upper extremity services including microvascular and reconstructive surgery). We adopt a holistic approach to patient care, patients with rehabilitation physicians, nurses, clinicians, pain management team and physiotherapy services working together to optimise outcome.
