MBBS (S’pore), MRCS (Ireland), MMed (Ortho), FRCSEd (Ortho)

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."
