  • Dr David Su was a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and the Director of the Foot and Ankle Services at the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at the Singapore General Hospital, prior to co-founding The Orthopaedic Centre in 2013. He graduated from the National University of Singapore, further obtained his post-graduate medical qualifications with the same institution and became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh.
  • Dr Su served in the public service for 15 years. He was awarded a scholarship to undergo subspecialty fellowship training in Foot and Ankle Surgery in Melbourne, Australia at The Park Clinic under Dr Mark Blackney. There he had the privilege to treat a myriad of patients, including elite & Olympic athletes, with foot and ankle conditions ranging from trauma and sports injuries, to lower limb deformities and degenerative conditions. He has also worked with Foot and Ankle surgeons in countries such as Switzerland, Germany and the United States, gaining a global perspective in treating patients.
  • Dr Su has been invited to lecture at multiple local, regional and international orthopaedic conferences and has been a lecturer at AO (Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthesefragen) courses dealing with fractures and orthopaedic trauma. He has been actively teaching and mentoring doctors in orthopaedic advanced specialty training, and training international fellows in Foot and Ankle surgery. As an Adjunct Assistant Professor, he taught postgraduate students at the Duke-NUS Medical School and tutored undergraduates in the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore. Dr Su has served as Honorary Secretary of the Singapore Orthopaedic Association in the past. Apart from general orthopaedic surgery, his special interests are in foot and ankle deformity correction, sports injuries and cartilage regeneration, and complex lower limb trauma.
  • Dr Su pioneered surgical techniques for brace–free rehabilitation after ankle ligament reconstructive surgery in Singapore. Having always had a personal interest in sports, including having participated in multiple marathons and Ironman triathlons, he understands the aspirations, needs and expectations of athletes. He combined this personal interest with philanthropic work in being self-funded and raising money for the Handicaps Welfare Association at the Ironman Western Australia Triathlon in 2006. Dr Su is married with 3 children and continues to be active in church work. He considers it an honour, and a deeply humbling experience, to encounter patients in their life’s journey, and to help bring them through to recovery.
