Dr. James Tan Siah Heng , Consultant Neurosurgeon
I am a Spinal Neurosurgeon from Singapore and the first in South East Asia to use the Bryan Artificial Cervical Disc. This disc is ideal for cervical spine disease with evidence of spinal cord or nerve root injury. To date, I have used all the various types of artificial disc and have inserted about 50 of such implants. My special interest is in degenerative disease of the cervical and lumbar spine, prolapsed discs, spondylosis, myelopathy and radiculopathy.
I perform minimally invasive techniques and spinal injections for neck and back pain. I treat spine and spinal cord tumours as well.
I look forward to be of service to you.
