Dr Lee Eu Jin is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon with a subspecialty interest in hip and knee surgery.
Dr Lee graduated from Guy's, King's and St Thomas' School of Medicine, London (UK) in 2002 and completed his Specialist training in 2010. He had always found the field of orthopaedic surgery fascinating and was invited to join the prestigious training programme at Kings College Hospital in his final year as a medical student! “Where can you find such an eclectic mix of biology, medicine, physics and engineering other than in orthopaedic surgery?” is what he often tells his students when asked about his reason in choosing this specialty.
Dr Lee Eu Jin obtained his Masters of Medicine in Orthopaedic Surgery from NUS in 2007. He became a Member of the Royal College of Surgeons (Edinburgh, UK) in 2006 and was invited to be a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons (Orthopaedic and Trauma Surgery, Edinburgh, UK) in 2010. That same year, Dr Lee was awarded the ASEAN Orthopaedic Association Travelling Fellowship where he represented Singapore in the annual cross- cultural and knowledge exchange programme with other ASEAN orthopaedic surgeons. Dr Lee is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of Medical (London, UK).
In 2011, Dr Lee was awarded the Human Manpower Development Plan scholarship from the Ministry of Health and travelled to Bern, Switzerland. There he underwent sub- specialty training in hip and knee surgery. During his time there, Dr Lee also did research and clinical trials on ground breaking work in the treatment of Anterior Cruciate Ligament Repairs (knee ligament tears and surgical repairs) as well as in implant design for prosthesis of the knee (Unicompartmental Knee Arthroplasty- a special type of partial knee replacement surgery). For his work in Switzerland, he was awarded the Bernese Knee Fellowship Award. Dr Lee also travelled to Lyon, France, specifically to learn and develop advanced techniques for patella- femoral disorders (problems with the knee cap) in 2012.
Prior to starting his own practice, Dr Lee was a consultant with Raffles Hospital and Khoo Teck Puat Hospital. He was a Senior Clinical Lecturer with the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore (NUS) and a lecturer at the Nayang Polytechnic School for Health Science (Advanced Diploma for Nursing). He has presented in numerous international meetings and published widely in peer-reviewed journals. He is also actively involved in international specialist surgeon training for joint replacement surgery.
In his free time, Dr Lee tries to contribute back to community. In 2006, he won the Minister for Health Award for his contribution in the Yogjakarta earthquake relief mission.
