"I pride myself on the skills I have in electrical and mechanical engineering, which immensely motivated my decision to venture into Orthopedic Surgery. I am a hands-on person who believes in DIY (Do It Yourself) and I never give up hope until I find a solution. People joke a lot at the Hospital, saying that I stay in late at the Hospital and I can be found fixing ward equipment at 2am in the morning.

I am passionate in handling Trauma, Arthroplasty and Arthroscopy patients and I look forward to meeting and taking care of you.
