The Shoulder

Composed of several bones, ligaments, tendons, and muscles, it enables activities such as lifting, reaching, and throwing. For specialised shoulder care, Dr Kau offers a range of services to help diagnose, treat, and restore optimal function to your shoulder joint.

If you notice a significant decrease in your shoulder's range of motion, such as difficulty raising your arm, reaching overhead, or performing daily activities, consult a shoulder specialist.

Shoulder Injuries or Instability

Frequently Asked Questions

A torn shoulder often exhibits severe pain, weakness, limited range of motion, and a popping or clicking sensation. With a shoulder strain, you may experience localised pain, muscle spasms, swelling, and difficulty with certain movements. However, a professional evaluation by an orthopaedic shoulder specialist is necessary to confirm the diagnosis and provide appropriate treatment.

The healing time after shoulder surgery varies depending on the procedure and individual factors. Generally, initial recovery can take weeks to months, while complete healing and full recovery may take several months to a year.

Determining the seriousness of shoulder pain depends on its intensity, persistence, and associated symptoms. Severe, worsening pain, limited range of motion, and additional symptoms like swelling or joint instability may indicate a more serious issue. It is advisable to seek medical evaluation if unsure or experiencing significant discomfort or functional limitations

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.
