Ryan received his training in Podiatric Medicine from the Charles Sturt University in Victoria. Before joining private practice at East Coast Podiatry, Ryan was one of the podiatrists at the NHG Polyclinics in Woodlands, Yishun and Ang Mo Kio. Ryan’s passion in sports medicine helped him develop a keen understanding of the importance of functioning at peak performance and how that could be achieved through the effective management of musculoskeletal injuries. Ryan’s interest in podiatric medicine grew as he discovered that it was often the preferred method to treat sports-related injuries and maintain fitness during recovery. As a natural outcome of these experiences, Ryan has developed excellent skills in the delivery of comprehensive patient education as well as applying conservative management and patient-centred treatment designed to improve his patients’ quality of life, general health and athletic abilities.
Ryan’s passion and clinical skills were evident even as a student, where he received the Dean’s Award for Academic Excellence during training. Ryan’s clinical experience within the public and private Australian health systems has ensured a high standard of culturally competent care for a wide variety of patients with diverse needs, valuable skills that also come into play when working with the diverse group of patients served by East Coast Podiatry. Families with children who are familiar with Ryan remember him for his Aussie warm personality and everyday cheerful demeanour.
Ryan is trained and certified with the (ISMST) International Society for Medical Shockwave Treatment, allowing him to promote healing and improve patient outcomes with soft tissue injury and diabetic related pathology.
Paediatric Podiatry Practice
“Lower-limb pain in children is very common and it is essential that they have timely access to the correct treatment options to avoid long term complications. Treating paediatric patients requires special consideration as we have to understand the child’s growth and development as well as their developmental biomechanics. Whilst this can be challenging, it presents a great opportunity to intervene early and utilise conservative treatment options to support their growth and development, thus improving long-term patient outcomes. Personally, I find paediatric podiatry to be very rewarding. I enjoy working with children and ensuring that the child is comfortable and confident during both diagnosis and treatment. In addition, I think it is vital to encourage them to take initiative of their own health and treatment in order to get back into their activities pain-free, as every child should be.”
Sports Injury Prevention
“Growing up with an athletic background, I know just how vital it is to be properly conditioned in order to function at peak performance. With a very large sporting demographic in Singapore, I see a lot of patients that want to take a pro-active step to take their activities to the next level, whilst avoiding associated sports injuries. By integrating modern healthcare technologies, I can ensure my athletic patients are training with optimal lower-limb function to enhance their performance and reduce their risk of sports-related injuries”.
Growing up on the Northern Beaches in Sydney, Ryan was involved in a wide array of sports such as rugby, touch football, cross-country running, sailing and competitive skiing, bestowing upon him a keen interest in all types of sports. In Singapore, he continues to maintain his fitness by running at the various parks scattered around the island. Aside from that, he can be found catching up with friends or enjoying a day at the beach.
