The Orthopaedic Surgeon

Dr Kau is a Fellowship trained Orthopaedic Surgeon with a subspecialty interest in Hip and Knee surgery. He is experienced in trauma and fracture management, sports injuries, and joint replacement surgery.

“Orthopaedic Surgery is a special blend of science and art. There is much joy in operating, but great satisfaction comes from seeing so many patients recover well after surgery. It’s a privileged role, to be able to play a part and touch someone’s life. Finding a solution which best fits the individual, it’s this which has kept me challenged and going all this time.”

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.
