Comprising numerous bones, joints, ligaments, and muscles, these structures allow us to walk, run, jump, and perform various activities.

Frequently Asked Questions

To relieve foot and ankle pain, rest the affected area, apply ice packs, elevate the foot, take over-the-counter pain medication, wear supportive footwear, do gentle exercises, and seek professional guidance if needed

The ability to continue regular activities or exercise routines with foot and ankle pain depends on the specific condition. It is best to consult with an orthopaedic doctor for guidance on modifying activities, recommended exercises, and alternatives to minimise further discomfort or damage.

The recovery period after foot and ankle surgery varies but typically ranges from several weeks to several months. Complete recovery and return to normal activities may take several months or longer. Following post-operative instructions and participating in recommended rehabilitation are important for optimal recovery.

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.
