Our Podiatrists

Dr Saw Yu Ting

Growing up, Dr. Saw Yu Ting (Doctor of Podiatry Medicine, USA) was an avid athlete, playing volleyball, tennis, and basketball on school teams throughout her secondary school. She often had pain from her bunions and blisters on her feet. A bad ankle sprain finally brought her into the podiatrist’s office one day and her podiatrist’s passion for her patients inspired Dr. Saw to pursue podiatry. Dr. Saw completed her surgical residency at Long Island Jewish Forest Hills Hospital as a foot and ankle doctor. She began her practice in the United States of America before returning to serve as a Podiatrist in Singapore.

Mr Jackie Tey

Like many others, Mr Jackie Tey grew up not knowing he has significant flatfeet. He used to suffer from aches and pain in the knees and feet but had never sought medical attention. It wasn’t until he suffered from both knee meniscus tears during National Service that he found out the root of his problem was flatfeet. Mr Tey was referred to see a Podiatrist and was intrigued by the work of the foot specialist and the concept of human biomechanics, which inspired him to pursue a degree in Podiatry. Mr Tey has been serving as a Podiatrist in Singapore since graduation and had years of experience with significant contributions in public hospitals.

I would like to commend the Straits Podiatry team for their professional and excellence. The expert consultation, treatment sessions and prescription insoles provided by podiatrist Benedict Khoo were essential and effective in treating my mother's feet ailments. The care and attention by the clinic staff was also exceptional, making each visit a pleasant one. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a clinic to treat podiatry-related issues.

My husband always has frequent injuries at his ankles, at random occasions without any apparent injuries. He always had difficulties walking and pain when the attacks occur. It will be swollen, red and pain to touch. GP always diagnosed it as Gout, and he always had to take pain killers called Arcoxia to cope with the pain. His pain was a hindrance to our travels and I was determined to find a cure for him. I chanced upon Dr.Saw and dragged my husband to see her. She has been a blessing. Her dedication to heal her patient and passion in performing the shockwave therapy is astounding. One year post therapy, my husband no longer take Arcoxia. He no longer has the frequent visits from his troublemaker ankle brothers. Thank you Dr.Saw, though thank you is never enough! It was a price worth paying for a life worth living. Thank you!!

FAQ

Podiatry is an allied health discipline that specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of foot, ankle, and lower limb problems.

A podiatrist is an allied health professional commonly referred to as a foot doctor, foot specialist, or foot and ankle specialist in Singapore. Podiatrists in Singapore are equipped with skills and knowledge from both medicine and biomechanics fields to manage and prevent lower limb injuries (from the hips to the feet) without surgery.

Generally, conditions managed by podiatrists in Singapore include (not limited to):

Podiatrists in Singapore are also trained to provide foot health education and prevent injuries from occurring. We can also prescribe orthotics or recommend exercises to improve foot and ankle strength.

We are commonly referred to as foot doctors in Singapore because we can diagnose and manage most foot conditions. This includes problems with bones, joints, muscles, tendons, skin, and nails. In addition, we have the expertise to prescribe medical foot devices to change the way you walk. Hence, we are often called foot specialists or foot doctors in Singapore. A practising podiatrist in Singapore should possess a recognised and qualified bachelor’s or doctorate degree in podiatric medicine, or equivalent.

Paediatric podiatry is essentially podiatry for children. It is a subspecialty of podiatry that specialises in the diagnosis and management of children’s foot conditions. Children’s foot conditions are managed very differently from adults because the child is still growing. Paediatric podiatrists need to know how to identify and differentiate between a child’s normal and abnormal development.

The common children’s foot conditions include (not limited to):

At Straits Podiatry, we understand your child may feel nervous when attending a clinic. As such, we have a dedicated children’s area for paediatric podiatry services designed to help your child feel at ease during consultation. Our paediatric podiatrists in Singapore are highly experienced in children’s foot conditions and can provide the best management advice for your child. We aim to ensure that all parents are given the correct information and that their children do not undergo unnecessary treatment.

Essentially, there is no best age to bring your child to see a paediatric podiatrist as foot conditions can occur at different ages. Our paediatric podiatry services range from infancy to adolescence and our facilities are children-friendly. We have seen infants suffering from ingrown toenails as young as a few days old. Overall, if you are concerned about your child’s foot or lower limb structure, or walking pattern, or would just like to seek a foot health screening for your child, our paediatric podiatry services are right for you.

At Straits Podiatry, our goal is to help you recover without the need for surgery. Our podiatry clinic in Singapore specialises in using state-of-the-art technology and advanced therapies to relieve your lower limb pains. The only “surgeries” that we perform in the clinic are ingrown toenail surgery and wart removal. However, these are minimally invasive, and you can walk out of the clinic immediately after.

The list of services or treatments that we provide includes:

We are one of the few podiatry clinics in Singapore with an entire team of podiatrists with medical shockwave treatment certification. This means that we are not only a clinic that provides shockwave therapy, but we also have internationally certified practitioners to help you. We pride ourselves in ensuring that our foot specialists in Singapore have the best qualifications to assist you.

Our podiatrists are trained to manage most foot, ankle and lower limb problems. If you are suffering from any lower limb discomfort, pain or difficulty walking or standing, it is advisable to consult a podiatrist. If you are still unsure if we can help you, feel free to contact us! We will be happy to assist you and advise you accordingly.

You may bring along all your past medical reports and medication list before seeing our Podiatrists. These include any imaging scans (e.g x-ray or MRI) and their written reports. This will facilitate us in providing the best holistic care when attending to your concerns. You should bring along your frequently worn shoes, which include school shoes, work shoes, and regular sports shoes.

For parents seeking podiatry services for their children, you may also bring along their health booklet for the first visit. This will help us understand your child’s birth and developmental history.

A referral letter from other medical doctors is not required to see a podiatrist in Singapore. If you have a lower limb concern or pain, you may contact us directly to schedule an appointment with us.

However, if you have a referral letter from any medical doctor or general practitioner to see a podiatrist in Singapore, you should bring them along for your appointment. This will generally help us understand your medical condition better. It may also help you with seeking reimbursements if your insurance requires a referral letter to see any foot doctor or foot specialist.

At Straits Podiatry, we receive referrals from any medical doctors or general practitioners for various lower limb conditions. If your insurance policy in Singapore requires a referral letter to podiatry, feel free to consult any Healthway Medical’s General Practitioners for help!
