Dr Chew Chee Ping

Dr Chew Chee Ping is a fellowship trained, Ministry of Health accredited Orthopaedic surgeon with a special interest in shoulder and knee conditions as well as sports injuries.

Prior to joining Alpha Joint & Orthopaedics group, he was practicing as a consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in Sengkang General Hospital and Singapore General Hospital.

He received his basic medical degree from National University of Singapore (NUS) in 2003, followed by a Master of Medicine (Orthopaedic Surgery). He was then appointed as Member of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS) Edinburgh, UK and subsequently as Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS)(Orthopaedics and Trauma) Edinburgh, UK upon completion of his specialist training.

After completing his specialist training with Singapore General Hospital, he practiced there before embarking on a 1-year clinical fellowship (under the SingHealth Health Manpower Development Plan (HMDP) Award) to Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Germany, one of the largest teaching hospitals in Europe.

There, he trained under the tutelage of Prof Markus Scheibel, in the field of shoulder surgery (open and arthroscopic), Prof Carsten Perka in lower limb arthroplasty and Dr Tobias Jung in knee arthroscopy. This was followed by an AO Trauma Fellowship with Prof Ralph Hertel in Bern, Switzerland, managing shoulder injuries and degenerative conditions.

He returned to Singapore in 2016 to helm the Sports Service in Sengkang General Hospital. His practice largely revolves around treating shoulder and knee conditions. This encompasses arthroscopic (key-hole) procedures, ligament reconstruction/repair, joint reconstruction/replacement as well as fracture fixation.

He is a strong advocate for undergraduate and post graduate medical education. He was heavily involved in medical student teaching as well as being an examiner for the final MBBS exam. He was a Clinical Physician Faculty Member for SingHealth Orthopaedic Surgery Residency as well as a clinical lecturer with Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, NUS.

Alpha Joints and Orthopaedics

Our clinic name Alpha reflects new beginnings.

For Dr. Lim it reflects a new season running his own clinic and it reflects where his own beginning (1).

For his patients it promises hope of relief and restoration from their orthopaedic maladies.

We are “Joints and Orthopaedics” because joints are Dr. Lim’s specialty and ‘”first love’ and orthopaedics because he does manage all orthopaedic problems.
