  • Dr Leslie Ng is a Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Island Orthopaedic Consultants. Dr Ng is at the forefront of spine surgery and well-versed in the use of advance technology to make the surgery safe and cost effective. This includes the use of ultrasonic bone scalpel rather than traditional bone cutter that may endanger the nerve or spinal cord; deploying real time nerve root monitoring devices during spine surgery to ensure prevent nerve injury and computer navigation for pedicle screw insertion whenever necessary for complex spine cases. He has considerable experience in evidence-based interventional pain procedures for chronic neck and back pain management including the latest generation of nucleoplasty ‘Disc “Fx’ system for degenerative intervertebral disc disorder.
  • Dr Ng is a United States certified user of lateral access spine surgery and conceptualized the technique of ‘indirect decompression’ of spinal canal.
