About Dr.Chan
My name is Dr CHAN Kin Yuen, and I am currently practicing as a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon in Gleneagles Hospital, Kuala Lumpur and Sime Darby Medical Centre (formerly Subang Jaya Medical Centre), Subang Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia.

I have been in practice as an orthopaedic specialist surgeon since 1990 and have trained abroad at various centres of excellence. My interest in arthroscopic surgery – a technique that uses small key-holes to access joints for surgical treatment and also joint replacements involving the shoulder, elbow and knee. Arthroscopic surgery is one of the technique that is commonly used for the treatment of orthopaedic sports medicine conditions involving the shoulders, elbow, wrist, knees and ankle joints.

Orthopaedic surgery is the specialty involved in the care of conditions that affect the bones, joints, ligaments, tendon and muscles. Within this wide area there are subspecialty care that include orthopaedic sports medicine, shoulder and elbow, knee, foot and ankle, spine, paediatric orthopedic, joint reconstruction and replacement, hand and microsurgery, and bone tumour surgery

Orthopaedic Sports Medicine covers a wide range of conditions that affect the muscles, ligaments, tendons and bones that may or may not be related to sports injury. My interests is in the shoulder, elbow and the knee joints where arthroscopic surgery and other open surgical techniques are employed to treat various conditions that affect these joints.

My approach to treatment is to provide a personalized and individualized care. Not all patients with the same condition are treated the same way as there are many other factors that needs to be taken into account that may have a major impact on the appropriate treatment offered. To achieve optimal results, your active participation and cooperation is essential especially after your surgery with the help of the physiotherapist in your rehabilitation.

There are useful links in this website which may be assist you in the understanding of your condition. I hope you will find this interesting and helpful in your decision in seeking care for your orthopaedic condition. My staff and I would be delighted to assist you.
