I am Dr Ang Chia Liang, Senior Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Centurion Orthopaedic Centre based in Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital. I have performed more than 6000 orthopaedic surgeries and more than 1500 knee surgeries. I have more than 17 years of orthopaedic experience, with particular expertise in key-hole (arthroscopic) surgeries of the Knee, Hip, Shoulder and Ankle. I also sub-specialise in minimally invasive treatment of joint conditions, joint replacements, and fractures. I am experienced in treating wear-and-tear/degenerative problems, and conditions affecting the ligament, meniscus and cartilage. I have performed complex knee and hip joint replacements for patients up to 90 years old. My techniques allow my patients the benefit of fast return to walking and activity. I treat my patients using a variety of non-surgical and surgical methods, with my philosophy emphasising on the individualisation of each patient's treatment method in order to achieve the best recovery outcomes and in order to meet the patient's expectations. I am a graduate of the National University of Singapore, with previous work experience at The Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham, UK, and renowned centres in the USA under the prestigious American Orthopaedic Association-ASEAN Programme.

My daughter (19 years old) fell from the stairs a month ago. Initially, she suffered from bruises on her knees, but we didn’t go to a doctor. This one week, she has been experiencing so much pain on her knees, especially when she moves. The doctor suggested she undergo an MRI. According to the doctor, her meniscus is a bit torn and he has advised she undergo arthroscopy. Is it necessary, Doctor, or is there any other way?
Doctor, I am 22 years old with 30 degrees of scoliosis. My orthopaedic doctor suggested only to wear traction. But I am not confident with my appearance now. Can I ask for a surgery to fix my back bone?
Doctor, I am 50 years old. I had herniated nucleus pulposus (HNP) in L4 and L5. I went for a surgery to implant two pieces of silicones 4 years ago. But I have been feeling pain in my back lately, whenever I sit or when I stand up after sitting. Is this a sign of recurrence of my problem? What should I do?
I have been feeling pain on my tailbone if I sit for too long. But my work keeps me sitting all day. Are there any suggestions for me to fix this problem?
Every time I rotate my thumb, I hear a “cracking” sound. It hurts as well. What condition is this, Doctor?
