Dr Chua is a practising orthopaedic surgeon and spine specialist at Mount Elizabeth Hospital, Mount Elizabeth Novena Hospital and Parkway East Hospital. He also has been appointed as visiting consultant to various restructured hospitals in Singapore.

Dr Chua completed his surgical training in Singapore and advanced his spine surgery repertoire at The Krembil Neuroscience Centre, University of Toronto, after being awarded the Health Manpower Development Program (HMDP) Scholarship by the Ministry of Health in 2009. Besides honing his technical expertise in complex spinal surgery, he was also involved in spinal cord injury and regeneration research and published several key ...

Upon his return from formal spine fellowship, he was awarded the prestigious Depuy-Asia Pacific Orthopaedic Association Spine Travelling Fellowship in 2010, where he was the lead member. He continued to work in the Changi General Hospital and was deputy chief of Spine Service in 2012. Dr Chua believes in providing his patients with the best quality of care, in a friendly and approachable manner. His amicable nature has earned him many accolades from patients and he received the “Best Service Award” by Changi General Hospital in 2012.

Dr Chua is comfortable in all aspects of spinal surgery from sub-occipital, cervical, thoracic, lumbo-sacral and pelvic fixation, in both open and minimally invasive techniques. He performs decompression, instrumented fusion and disc replacement surgery but he is especially sought after in Singapore for his expertise in complex spinal conditions both by patients as well as other medical colleagues. Besides spinal surgery, Dr Chua is also well-versed in many other non-spinal orthopaedic conditions including trauma and degenerative or arthritic conditions of the limbs. His clinical interests include slipped discs/nerve compression, scoliosis and spinal deformity, spinal cord injuries/compression and trauma, and arthritic degenerative disease.

Today Dr Chua commits his clinical time to caring for his patients and his academic appointments with AOSpine as a faculty member. He continues his research collaborations with Peking Union Medical College, Beijing, as well as the alumni at the University of Toronto.
