The Elbow

The elbow joint is an intricate structure that allows for the bending and straightening of the arm, as well as rotational movements. Composed of bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles, the elbow is a crucial link between the upper arm and forearm. For specialised elbow care, Dr Kau offers a range of services to help diagnose, treat, and restore optimal function to your elbow.

If you have difficulty fully extending or flexing your elbow, or if you experience a decrease in your range of motion, it is advisable to seek the expertise of an elbow specialist.

Frequently Asked Questions

Elbow pain may resolve on its own for minor strains or overuse, but persistent or worsening pain should be evaluated by a medical professional for proper diagnosis and treatment.

Severe or persistent elbow pain, swelling, limited range of motion, numbness or tingling, and difficulty with daily activities may suggest a more serious condition. Seek medical attention from an orthopaedic specialist or healthcare professional for evaluation and appropriate treatment.

Recovery time after elbow surgery varies depending on the procedure, ranging from a few weeks to several months. Complete healing and return to normal activities may take several months or longer.

Patient Feedbacks

Dr Kau was very careful and explained clearly the surgery procedures. After surgery, the care while I was in hospital was closely monitored and he even came during weekends! The hip so far has recovered and healed. His ‘predictions’ of when what can happen are so accurate. Trust him.

Ming Lee Chua

Dr. Kau is an exemplary doctor who is experienced in his field and is very patient with his patients. He walked me through the details of my knee condition and addressed all my concerns. Thanks to Dr. Kau, I had a better understanding of my ACL and MCL injury and the various treatment options available. His advice and treatment have been very valuable to me.

Ethan Chan

I had a very successful total hip replacement done by Dr Kau 4 years ago. 4 months after the operation I was back walking, cycling and swimming. The beautiful job gave me much confidence Dr Kau is most professional and has such great doctor patient communication.
