The Joint Preserving Osteotomy Service (JPOS) in SKH is led by Asst Prof Hamid Razak [Orthopaedic Surgeon: Hamid Rahmatullah Bin Abd Razak | Sengkang General Hospital (skh.com.sg)]. Asst Prof Hamid Razak underwent fellowship training in joint preservation surgery with Prof Adrian Wilson, a global leader and an expert in the field of knee osteotomy surgery. Asst Prof Hamid Razak utilizes computer-assisted planning as well as a minimally invasive soft-tissue sparing approach with smaller, stronger implants from Europe. This allows patients to recover quicker compared to traditional approaches. Asst Prof Hamid and his team are also heavily invested in research and innovation in joint preservation surgery, translating the best approaches to optimize patient care and outcomes.
With the evolution of computer-aided planning, safer and minimally invasive surgical techniques, joint preserving osteotomy is an excellent option for younger patients with knee OA. If you think you may benefit from a joint preserving osteotomy, visit your family doctor, or visit the polyclinic to get an appointment to be seen by a member of our team.
