Orthopedic Diagnostic Centre

The Orthopaedic Diagnostic Centre (ODC) at Sengkang General Hospital is an independent unit that tracks clinical outcome measures during pre and postoperative functional assessments of patients. These measures are benchmarked against internationally published data from the leading orthopaedic centres in the world.
