“Our feet are the foundation of our entire body as they provide support and balance. Therefore proper alignment of our feet can reduce stress on our bones, joints, and soft tissues. I find this area of podiatry fascinating I am passionate to help my patients with improving their biomechanics and reduce the symptoms related to their musculoskeletal conditions. Having a background in running and being eager to stay fit, I understand the importance of pain-free feet and how an injury can get in the way of doing what you love. This drives my passion to help athletes achieve their personal best using the advanced medical technologies in injury rehabilitation and load management.”Fungal Toenail & Skin Conditions
“Throughout my time as a podiatrist in Australia, I have seen a great deal of patients with fungal skin infections and nail conditions. Therefore, I have equipped myself with skills in managing the abovementioned conditions. Due to the tropical weather in Singapore, the weather is hot and humid which will allow fungi to thrive and cause symptoms such as changes to the skin and nail integrity. I enjoy working with my patients to help them prevent and manage these conditions with my knowledge in this area.”
