Foot Overview

The foot is a structure that serves as the foundation for our mobility, enabling us to walk, run, and engage in various activities. Composed of numerous bones, joints, muscles, and ligaments, the foot undergoes significant stress and is prone to a wide range of conditions and injuries.

With his extensive training and expertise, Dr Park offers comprehensive care for a wide range of foot-related issues, utilising surgical techniques and personalised treatment plans to optimise patient outcomes and restore foot function.

Foot Surgery Cost in Singapore

The cost of foot surgery in Singapore can vary depending on several factors, including the specific procedure required, the presence of any complications, and the type of ward chosen for hospitalisation.

Foot surgery expenses typically comprise hospital fees and doctor fees. Hospital fees encompass charges related to the room, medication, laboratory tests, and the use of surgical facilities and equipment. On the other hand, doctor fees encompass the fees charged by the surgeon, anaesthetist, and doctors for inpatient attendance.

It is important to note that the Ministry of Health (MOH) provides fee benchmarks that offer a recommended range of fees for foot conditions and procedures, serving as a reference point for patients and doctors.
