About Our Practice

I am Dr Hwan-Tak Hee, a fellowship-trained orthopaedic spine surgeon practising in Singapore. My position is that of a senior consultant and academic associate professor in my institution. I am also the Deputy Head of the Division of Spinal Surgery in my institution. I obtained my spinal surgery fellowship in the United States in 2000. My interests are in various spinal disorders, from the cervical to the lumbar spine. I deal with degenerative spinal disorders, spinal deformities including scoliosis (adult and pediatric), spinal trauma/infections/tumors. I am also very much involved in the latest innovative surgical techniques e.g. pedicle screw fixation of the cervical spine, spinal arthroplasty/disc replacements in the cervical and lumbar spine, vertebroplasty/kyphoplasty, endoscopic discectomies, and thoracoscopic correction of scoliosis, among others. I also perform injection procedures for the management of various degenerative spinal conditions. I am the champion in developing clinical pathways for cervical spine surgery, management of osteoporotic fractures of the spine, and spinal tumors in my institution. I have been awarded the STAR award by my institution in 2004, 2006, 2008, and 2009 for excellent patient service. I am currently a member of several prestigious international spine societies, among which are North American Spine Society, International Society for the Study of the Lumbar Spine, Cervical Spine Research Society, Spine Arthroplasty Society, and AO Spine International. I am currently serving in the advisory editorial board for The Spine Journal, a leading peer reviewed spine journal in the world, Journal of Orthopaedic Science, Open Spine Journal, and Open Orthopaedic Journal. I am also currently the president for the Back Society of Singapore (2005-2009) and Chairman, AOSpine S'pore chapter (2007-2010). I am also Council member, AOSpine East Asia Board and secretary of Singapore Orthopaedic Association (2006-2007). I am also a visiting professor of the Clinical Medical College of Yangzhou University, China. I have been invited as guest speakers or surgeons in various countries, including China, Hong Kong, Italy, Indonesia, Macau, Myanmar, Malaysia, Philippines, Japan, Vietnam, and India.
I will be glad to serve you in whatever ways I can. I can be contacted at doshht@nus.edu.sg (email) and 65-67780720 (fax).
