Podiatrist - Manfred Mak

Manfred Mak 

Head, Podiatrist

Salvaging and preserving the lower limb is the major part of my job role at SGH where I spend most of my time in the field of wound management. The field of Podiatry is now establishing itself in Singapore, assisted by a growing confidence and scope of the profession, and the increasing demands for improving the standards of healthcare. Podiatry is an essential part of an important programme to ensure that people maintain good foot health.

After I graduated, I set out to achieve my aspirations of helping people get well and stay well. Working in SGH has allowed me to mature quickly. The complexity and diversity of medical and surgical cases in SGH has propelled me to the forefront of medicine and requires me to continuously sharpen my skills and knowledge.

Engaging with my patients and other health professions has allowed me to gain a deeper insight into my patients’ conditions and their individual needs. With this knowledge and my motivation to keep improving, I am able to directly influence the quality of my patient’s treatment and experience, together with their overall health outcomes.

Working in a tertiary acute hospital could be daunting for some. But for those who relish a challenging experience, I can assure you that this journey would be one that you will not regret.
