- Sept. 25, 2015
-- GraMedica is excited to announce the orthopaedic surgeon Dr Chong Keen Wai at the Bone and Joint Institute of Singapore (BJIOS) as an International Center of Excellence (ICOE). GraMedica’s HyProCure ICOE program recognizes expert physicians, medical groups, and health care centers accomplished at performing Extra-Osseous TaloTarsal Stabilization (EOTTS) procedures with HyProCure and providing consummate postoperative care. With a high level of research leadership, Dr. Chong is an established forerunner in trauma, the correction of lower extremity and foot / ankle deformities, and minimally invasive foot and ankle surgery.
Dr. Chong is Managing Director and practices at BJIOS, a group of expert orthopaedic surgeons. Located within Connexion at Farrer Park Medical Centre, BJIOS provides a team approach of specialists in orthopaedics, incorporating imaging, day surgery, recovery and physiotherapy for its patients. The Connexion hub allows day surgery patients to recover in a hotel instead of at the hospital. Dr. Chong speaks English and Mandarin and has provided patient care at BJIOS to patients from all over the globe, including Europe, America, South Korea, Japan and China.

In the June issue of Foot & Ankle Specialist, Ebrahim Sadeghi-Demneh, et al, reported that, “Flatfoot was shown to be a common deformity in school-age children.” With such a large patient population suffering from foot and ankle disorders, GraMedica planned its global HyProCure ICOE program to reach out to patients and increase the awareness and medical services provided by experts in foot and ankle care. Excellent lower extremity and foot and ankle care of patients by experts like Dr. Chong will result in improvement in the quality of life of a significant number of patients currently suffering.
Dislocation of the talotarsal joint, in the hindfoot, often appears as flatfoot. Left untreated, talotarsal joint dislocation can lead to serious, long-term foot, knee, hip, and back related issues that often require aggressive forms of surgery. The minimally invasive EOTTS with HyProCure® procedure has provided tens of thousands of pediatric and adult patients with immediate correction for congenital/acquired talotarsal joint dislocation.
