Orthopaedic Video Consult

The Department of Orthopaedic Surgery is offering a consultation service via a secure video conferencing platform accessible on mobile phone, tablet or computer. Through this secured video call, advice will be given to patients on the appropriate management of their medical condition. This way, patients are not required to travel to the clinic for their appointment.

Following the session, follow-up appointments will be booked (if necessary), any prescribed medications will be sent via courier to the patient’s address, and outstanding bills for the consultation can be settled via our convenient e-payment options.


  1. Improve access to care in the comfort of your own homes.
  2. Save your time and money from traveling and waiting at the clinic.
  3. Ensure that you receive timely review of your medical condition even when there may be operational restrictions or limitations that affect the provision of face-to-face consultation for example during times of infectious disease outbreak.
