We provide the following services and surgical procedures in the care of patients. While this is not an exhaustive list further consult may be provided on services provided outside this list.

Musculoskeletal Oncology

Special services on-site
  • Histological services
We provide an onsite histological service designed to give a quick read for biopsy slides that may be brought from overseas. The field of musculoskeletal oncology is diverse and highly specialised and often the diagnosis posed may be controversial. By providing this service we hope to cut down the time it takes to provide the most appropriate siting of care.


  • Biopsy services
We provide on-site biopsy services to reduce cost and lag time to definitive treatment. This can be highly advantages in starting timely care for the in-flight patient. 


  • Paediatric silent cast cutter
We provide the region's first pediatric silent cast cutter specially imported for children who can be highly distressed by the standard cast cutters on the market. This has been done at considerable cost but would provide an unparalleled level of consideration and comfort for the child who needs a cast removed.


  • Gait analysis
We have recently acquired motion capture technology on sight that can aid in optimal evaluation and feedback for muscle efficiency and movement disorders. This can also be used to optimize athletic performance. For more information email us at info@limbsalvagesurgery.com


  • Motion analysis
This represents the next wave in outcomes analysis and we are the only clinic in South East Asia to offer this service


Golfer The parametrics provided in the software permit the breakdown of complex movements involved in sporting activity


Golfer The system lends itself well to evaluating the perfect golf swing 


Fighter Martial art movements are specifically difficult to track due to extremely fast movement
 

Fighter The system has a rapid response rate that is able to track kicking at high speed 


Fighter In this analysis the point of contact force of both feet were identical however this was achieved through sheer power projection at the right hip and more of a whip action on the left hip.  

  • In-house physiotherapy service
In recognition of the close collaboration between rehabilitation and medical care for the patients who undergo the challenging procedures we offer, we now provide an in-house physiotherapy service which, in addition to the evaluation systems featured above also provide for novel methodologies like the CTU-Mega 18 Diamagnetic Pump for pain and oedema control.

  • Ultrasound imaging
We perform in-house ultrasounds for rapid diagnosis of tumors, sports injuries and to guide biopsies. This allows for better placement of forthcoming imaging studies and provides for a rapid diagnostic assessment while lowering costs of procedures.


This is an evaluation of a femoral artery in a patient whose thigh tumor was resected with her own vessel and another one made from her own vein

 

The ultrasound allows us to do biopsies by guiding the needle into the tumor
 

In this patient the anterior cruciate ligament was found to be absent despite reasonably good knee function
 

Following ACL reconstruction the ultrasound is used to confirm structural integrity on follow-up
