Up On Your Feet!

Your lower part of the body, comprising knee, ankle and feet carry most of your body weight. Hence it is important to keep them in good shape says orthopaedic surgeon Dr Kannan Kaliyaperumal

Going weak in the knees may not always be a good thing. We often come across people with severe knee and leg problems that hinder their daily simple routines literally echoing the words of R&B band SWV’s (Sisters With Voices) chartbuster number Weak: I get so weak in the knees I can hardly speak, I lose all control and something takes over me. 

In reality, ailments of the lower part of the body are not always a matter of song and dance. So it is extremely important to take care of them right at the beginning. Dr Kannan Kaliyaperumal, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Foot & Ankle Specialist at the Centre for Othopeadeics Pte Ltd believes that the modern day lifestyle makes one prone to injuries of lower limbs, particularly of the foot and ankle. 

He said that orthopaedic medicine is now so highly evolved that Minimal Invasive surgery is an option. Dr Kannan is one of the two surgeons in Singapore accredited in Minimially Invasive Surgery of the Foot and Ankle. “I never fail to get satisfaction in getting my patients back on their feet soon after treatment or surgery. In many instances, after very simple minimally invasive interventions, a person’s quality of life improves because they are able to return to their usual routines. I am always grateful for the opportunity to help,” he said. 

Here are excerpts of an interview with Dr Kannan:

India Se: Tell us a little about your background/education. What were your formative years like?

Dr Kannan:I am a first generation Singaporean born to parents who were from India. My father is a retired teacher and my late mother was a homemaker. My mother’s hometown was Pondicherry and much of my early childhood memories are of this beautiful town where I spent my school holidays. 

During my formative years, my mother indoctrinated in me the values of hard work, discipline and honesty. I will always cherish the unconditional love that she showered upon all of us. 

My ambition to pursue Medicine largely stemmed from my interest in Science when I was in school. I have always been fascinated with the wonderful complexity of the human body. The greatest privilege of practicing Medicine is the multiple opportunities of working with people at the most vulnerable moments of their lives, the responsibility that is felt when implicit trust of their well-being is squarely placed on me. 

Having completed my education in Singapore, I am an alumni of Raffles Junior College and got my medical degree from the National University of Singapore (NUS), I received my postgraduate qualification from the Royal College of Surgeons in Edinburgh. I was awarded the prestigious MOH Scholarship by the Ministry of Health (Singapore) to pursue further training in the field of lower limb reconstructive surgery with special emphasis on Foot & Ankle Reconstruction. 

I spent time in Switzerland and in the Netherlands for my subspecialty training. I am one of two surgeons in Singapore who are part of GRECMIP, a society for Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) surgery of the Foot and Ankle.

I was with a government-restructured hospital for more than a decade, where I started and headed the Foot & Ankle unit before commencing private practice.
