WHY CHOOSE DR BRYAN
Dedicated To Your Recovery
We want to get you back on your feet and living life normally again. Whether you are out of action with a torn rotator cuff from sports or worn down by the pain of arthritis, our job is to get you back to your best.
More Time & Care For Each Patient
In busy orthopaedic clinics, patients tend to lose that personal touch and end up feeling more like they are in a factory assembly line. Dr Bryan spends more time to get to know you better and really goes to the root of your injuries and needs.
Orthopaedic Care Rooted In Empathy
Dr Bryan understands the pain and frustration that accompanies shoulder pain and immobility. Sports and injuries have always played a big part in Dr Bryan’s life. He was a school swimmer, did powerlifting in his younger days, currently trains in Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, and also enjoys wakeboarding and snowboarding. His strong interest in sports give him a deep understanding of shoulder injuries, allowing him to approach each patients’ needs with an empathetic sense of understanding that leads to better diagnosis, better treatment, and better overall care.
Surgery Only When It’s Most Needed
You can be assured that Dr Bryan will offer the most prudent treatment which will give the best chance of recovery. Despite having performed thousands of different surgeries, Dr Bryan is always mindful of the fact that surgeries done for the wrong indications will not yield the best results. If surgery is not the best solution to your problem, you can be sure that it will be strongly discouraged.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is My Condition Serious Enough For A Visit To A Specialist Orthopaedic Surgeon?
When specific conditions become more chronic and persistent, the treatment options may be beyond your GP’s expertise.
If you experience severe pain, or if your pain is affecting your quality of life such that you cannot perform everyday activities normally (e.g. walking, standing or wearing clothes), visiting an Orthopaedic Surgeon for a detailed assessment and diagnosis is the best course of action.
What Can I Expect At My First Visit With An Orthopaedic Surgeon?
At your first appointment with Dr. Tan, he will evaluate your medical history and the pain you are experiencing.
Depending on the symptoms you have, he will likely perform some form of diagnostic imaging (e.g. X-Rays or MRI scans) to assess your condition accurately. X-rays and CT scans are useful to rule out bony problems, whilst an MRI scan is excellent at looking at soft tissue (e.g. tendons, ligaments, cartilage) problems.
After assessing your condition, Dr. Tan will recommend a personalised treatment plan, according to your specific needs. This may include surgical or non-surgical treatment options.
Can I Continue My Sporting Activities If I Am Experiencing Pain (e.g. Shoulder, Knee or Hip Pain)?
Dr. Tan always advises patients to listen to their bodies and not push through the pain barrier, especially if your pain is a direct result of sports injuries.
If your pain does not subside with RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation) and over-the-counter painkillers, it is highly advisable that you seek professional medical advice. Continuing with sporting activities will place additional strain on your body and worsen the condition.
