    Orthopedic/orthopaedic surgeon (for knee)

    Can anyone recommend an awake/alert, honest orthopedic surgeon who is passionate about their chosen field of medicine?

    I've bunged up one of my knees.

    Thanks in advance.

    My brother used Dr CC Kong. He is really happy with the result and hasn't had any issue with his knee since the operation (2010). That was his second op on his knee as the first was in Singapore and not as successful.

    Going to a surgeon after I damaged my knee was the worst decison I made. Go to a physio and only consider surgery as an abolute last option.

    MI7, could you recommend a good physiotherapist?

    I've got an appointment for an MRI and, once that's done will have a consult with the doc who ordered the MRI and then will take the CD and printouts that they give me around and see what the consensus is, if there's a consensus at all.

    Also, thanks to everyone else who has replied thus far.

    I am currently using a physiotherapist from Sport Performance in Central (Aon China building) http://www.sp.hk/

    Personally I feel they are very professional there and have specialists in many different areas if you need it

    I've just had a ruptured tendon repaired by Dr. Henry Ho, Specialist in Orthopaedics and Traumatology. He's at Room 1609, Crawford House, 70 Queen's Road Central. Tel: 2525 1689. He takes time to explain everything, is thorough, wonderful bedside manner and really does care! Thoroughly recommend.

    I went here for physio :-

    Sports and Spinal Physiotherapy Centres

    and was seen by Kate Pallett and then Debbie Look. Both were very good and professional and charge central HK prices of around $800 a session.

    For second opinions on surgeons you may like to check out Dr Christopher Tong, 2521-1680, Ortho and Sports Medicine clinic n B of A Tower. and Dr Dan Hooley of Sportsmed, 2715-4577 in Jardine House.

    Both the above were recommended by my doctor as being trustworthy and ethical in a field where finance can sometimes be more important than medicine.
