Our Story

OrthoKau - Our Logo

OrthoKau is a local Orthopaedic Practice in Singapore. We look after patients of all ages and conditions, with a special interest in hip and knee conditions.

The tree in the centre of our logo is a modern take on the Orthopaedic symbol of the original Tree of Andry, as coined by French physician Nicholas Andry in 1741. In our logo, the tree represents life.

At the heart of it we aim to provide regeneration and renewal. The snowflakes within the leaves represent our patients. Each is unique, none is alike, but all are beautiful.

Mission and Vision

To provide trusted and comprehensive orthopaedic care, dedicated to improving the lives of our patients by empowering them to regain mobility and alleviate pain.

To be a trusted leader in the field, renowned for successful orthopaedic care, innovation, and patient outcomes.

Expertise & Experience

Dr Kau is a skilled orthopaedic doctor with more than 15 years of experience. Dr Kau continues to be committed to providing personalised care to patients seeking comprehensive orthopaedic solutions.

Patient-centred Approach

We prioritise a patient-centred approach that places your needs and well-being at the forefront of our practice. Our commitment to open communication empowers you to actively participate in your orthopaedic care, fostering trust and creating a supportive environment throughout your healing journey.

Tailored Treatment

Each patient presents unique symptoms and complaints. We recognise that treatments must be tailored just for you. One size does not fit all. In an information age where so many options can confuse you, we try to simplify it all, and provide a customised solution for your needs.


We collaborate with most major insurance partners in Singapore to ensure our patients’ peace of mind in their treatment journey. We understand the importance of financial considerations and offer assistance and financing information to our patients. Please reach out to our staff and we will be happy to provide you with the information you require.


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.

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.

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.
