Our Podiatrists

“Our journey of becoming podiatrists first began when we were patients ourselves.”
Saw Yu Ting

Ms. Saw Yu Ting, DPM

Having completed her podiatric education and surgical training in the United States, Ms. Saw Yu Ting has the distinction of being the only surgically trained Singaporean podiatrist to date. She received her Doctor of Podiatric Medicine (DPM) from New York College of Podiatric Medicine (NYCPM) in 2017, where she was inducted into the Pi Mu Delta National Honors Service Society.

She completed her rearfoot and ankle surgical residency program in 2020 at the Long Island Jewish Forest Hills Hospital, also covering podiatric care at two Level 1 Trauma Hospitals. During her residency training, she was extensively trained in inpatient and outpatient diabetic limb salvage, wound care, sports medicine, nail care, geriatric and pediatric care and biomechanics.

Her hands-on experience extends beyond her residency term. During her DPM degree, she trained at eight different city hospitals around the New York City area. This allowed her to gain a wide range of exposure to varying podiatric pathologies. As a student, she was also awarded the Dr. Sidney Solid Award for excellence and accomplishment in podiatry and service to the podiatric community.

Jackie Tey, Chief Podiatrist at Straits Podiatry. Singapore Podiatrist

Mr. Jackie Tey

Mr Jackie Tey is a recipient of MOH Holdings’ Health Science and Nursing Scholarship for Podiatry and began his podiatry career at Singapore General Hospital (SGH) followed by Sengkang General Hospital (SKH). During his time serving in public healthcare institutions, he was part of a multidisciplinary team and worked closely with Orthopaedic surgeons, Vascular Surgeons and Endocrinologists in treating patients with complex diabetic foot complications. He was also involved in clinical research to help improve care delivery and patient outcomes. His passion and genuine care earned him recognition and awards during his time at SKH. His dedication to patient care also led to the innovation of a new negative pressure wound dressing technique, for which he and his team won the first prize internationally.

Aside from his commitments to diabetic foot, Mr Tey also has extensive experience in treating patients with musculoskeletal conditions, sports injuries, and paediatric lower limb conditions. He has a strong interest in lower limb biomechanics and sports injuries and is very well-regarded by his peers for his deep knowledge in the diagnosis and treatment of various lower limb conditions. His interest in these areas was led by his experience in growing up with flatfeet and competing in basketball, hockey and volleyball. These experiences have also given him a keen ability to relate to patients with sports injuries and the first-hand experience to treat them effectively.

Benedict Khoo, Principal Podiatrist in Singapore. Straits Podiatry

Mr. Benedict Khoo

Mr Benedict Khoo is a Singaporean Podiatrist who has been in the private sector for many years. He graduated with honours in Podiatry from the Queensland University of Technology, Australia. He specialises in treating sports injuries as well as other types of common painful disorders arising from walking or running gait biomechanics.

Mr Khoo has a clinical interest in optimising modern therapies that aid patient recovery processes, with an in-depth focus on non-surgical treatment options through the use of radial pressure wave therapy and focused extracorporeal shockwave therapy. He is trained and certified in shockwave application by the International Society of Medical Shockwave Treatment. He utilises medical shockwave therapy in treating injuries and lower limb biomechanical complications that are common to people of all age groups.

Mr Khoo also has a keen interest in using minimally invasive surgical techniques to treat recurrent ingrown toenails. This will leave the best aesthetic outcome for the patients with minimal scarring and a faster recovery time.

Mr Khoo is one of the pioneering clinicians in Straits Podiatry and is widely recognised today as a well-established podiatrist in Singapore.

Ms Stephanie Glover, Principal Podiatrist at Straits Podiatry

Ms. Stephanie Glover

Ms Stephanie Glover is an Australian podiatrist living in Singapore with 12 years of experience in the private sector. She graduated with honours in Health Science (Podiatry) from Queensland University of Technology, Australia in 2011. She spent the first few years of her career honing skills in general practice with a particular interest in biomechanics and orthotic prescription. In 2020, Stephanie relocated to Singapore with her young family. She began working in private practice, which exposed her to a wide range of treatment modalities, including extracorporeal shockwave therapy. Stephanie finds most aspects of podiatric practice incredibly rewarding, with a particular interest in paediatrics and biomechanics.

As a mother of two active young boys, Stephanie is particularly comfortable addressing paediatric concerns. She is acutely aware of the importance of mobility and functional development in the early years and the impact this can have on a child’s physical, social and emotional wellbeing.

In addition to private clinical practice, Stephanie has six years of clinical practice in Australia’s residential aged-care sector. She is skilled in the conservative management of general lower limb conditions in an older demographic (such as nail and callous care) and managing conditions such as osteoarthritis, which can lead to inactivity in this population. Stephanie is passionate about helping her older patients stay active and pain-free so they can continue to lead rich and fulfilling lives.

Ms Maggie Lee, Principal Podiatrist at Straits Podiatry

Ms. Maggie Lee

Ms Maggie Lee is a recipient of MOH Holdings’ Health Science and Nursing Scholarship for Podiatry.  After graduating with a Bachelor of Podiatry with Honours from the Queensland University of Technology, she pursued her passion for podiatry, developing a profound interest in musculoskeletal biomechanics, rehabilitation, and the management of high-risk foot conditions, particularly focusing on pediatric patients.

Ms Lee is a dynamic podiatrist renowned for her multifaceted approach to foot and ankle care across various medical settings. With a diverse skill set and a passion for interdisciplinary collaboration, Ms Lee excels in providing comprehensive treatment to patients at Ng Teng Fong General Hospital (NTFGH) and National University Polyclinics (NUP).

In her role at the acute hospital, Ms Lee worked closely with Vascular and Orthopedic surgeons to address complex foot and ankle conditions. Drawing on her expertise in podiatric medicine, she plays a pivotal role in the management of cases involving arterial insufficiency, venous insufficiency, Charcot foot deformity and post-amputation ulcers. Through collaborative consultations, bedside debridement and offloading interventions, Ms Lee ensures that patients receive optimal care tailored to their individual needs, with a focus on restoring function and enhancing quality of life.

In addition to her work in the hospital setting, Ms Lee was seconded to polyclinics, where she focuses on skin and nail management and musculoskeletal conditions. Here, she serves a diverse patient population, ranging from dermatological and pathological toenails to pediatric patients requiring care for developmental foot deformities and sports-related injuries. With a compassionate and patient-centred approach, Ms Lee delivers personalized treatment plans that address the unique needs of each individual, promoting healing and preventing future complications.
