The shortest downtime possible

We merge a solid foundation in non-operative Sports Medicine treatments with advanced techniques in Orthopaedic Surgery to get you back in action.

Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine

Dr J. K. Lim is a US fellowship-trained orthopaedic surgeon specialising in ACL reconstruction, arthroscopic surgery, and surgery to the knee, shoulder and hip joints. Separately he is one of only a few orthopaedic surgeons in Singapore with a Masters degree in clinical Sports Medicine.

Keeping up to date with the latest treatments, most of our minimally invasive operations can be done in a “day-surgery” or overnight stay setting. Rarely do we require casts for months on end to treat fractures. Often, surgical scars can be covered in waterproof dressings, allowing patients to recover quickly and get back to their day-to-day life.

Best of all, many conditions can be well and successfully treated without surgery at all. By carefully analysing your symptoms, mechanism of injury, and not relying completely on MRI and imaging studies, we’ll take the time and get you the right diagnosis - to put you on the right track towards recovery.

We refer only to physiotherapists and other supporting specialists familiar with our philosophy and goals of management. Our goal is to minimise pain, reduce “downtime” and accelerate your return to work, sports and normal daily living.
