Bone Island Children’s Clinic was set up in 2022, adopting a sailor/pirate theme to liven up the clinics and to make the doctors’ visits a little more exciting for our children.
Dealing with an injury or bone problem can be challenging and sometimes make one feel very lonely. We envision ourselves being in the same ship as you. The path ahead may be stormy and tumultuous, but we are there to help guide and steer you to safe shores. Together, we will embrace all that is to come with excitement at the adventures that await us!
Here is a little fun fact about our clinic name: Bone island is an actual medical diagnosis! It is usually found incidentally (by chance) after an X-ray, CT or MRI scan. It represents a focus of mature compact (cortical) bone within the more central cancellous bone and is completely benign (friendly and not dangerous to you)!
Our Paediatric Orthopaedic Consultant diagnoses and treats injuries or longstanding conditions affecting growing bones, joints or muscles:
Dr Lam Kai Yet obtained his medical and postgraduate qualifications from the National University of Singapore and the Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh in UK. He went on to complete a Patellofemoral and Sports Surgery Fellowship at the Hopital de la Croix-Rousse in France, and a Paediatric Orthopaedics Fellowship at the Great Ormond Street Hospital in London.
Prior to starting Bone Island Children’s Clinic, Dr Lam served as the deputy head of department and senior consultant in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery at KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (KKH). At KKH, he furthered his paediatric specialisation by obtaining the Diploma of Children’s Orthopaedics from the European Paediatric Orthopaedic Society. Dr Lam helped set up the Limb Lengthening and Deformity Clinic in 2018. He also established the use of 3D printing in deformity correction in this region and was awarded the prestigious Asia Pacific Paediatric Orthopaedics Travelling Fellowship in 2019 for his work.
Dr Lam’s continued passion in education has seen him organise multiple regional educational events, such as the first ASEAN Deformity Workshop and KKH Paediatric Orthopaedic Trauma symposiums. For his dedication to teaching, Dr Lam was awarded the Outstanding Faculty Award in 2018/2019 by SingHealth Residency.
