The Orthopaedic Centre of Excellence

The Orthopaedic Centre at KPJ Tawakkal Specialist Hospital in Kuala Lumpur is recognised for its excellence in Orthopaedic Care. The centre was established in 2010 with the inauguration of the brand new building for KPJ Tawakkal Specialist Hospital. We were one of the first to set up a digital operating theatre with a dedicated navigation system in Malaysia encompassing the audio-video communication and information technology, for patients and consultants.

The Orthopaedic Centre of Excellence provides technology for the team of the surgeon to perform surgical procedures and innovative treatments for their patients to get them to regain patient's mobility and active lives.

Since pioneering the first digital theatre, KPJ Tawakkal has established the Orthopaedic Centre of Excellence providing the latest technology for its consultants to improve their surgical techniques, outcomes and patient safety. As one of the most active disciplines at KPJ Tawakkal Specialist Hospital, we have the full complement of 10 consultants in all Orthopaedic sub-specialties to diagnose and treat the patients.


The Orthopaedic Centre of Excellence provides technology for the team of surgeons to perform surgical procedures, innovate and improve surgical treatment for our patients to regain their mobility and day-to-day functions.

The centre provides Diagnosis, Treatment, Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation Services for:

  • AMIS: Anterior Minimally Invasive Hip Surgery (latest technique in minimally invasive surgery for Total Hip Replacement)
  • Spine and Minimally Invasive Arthroscopy Procedures
  • Arthroplasty of Hip (second highest number of cases in Malaysia); Arthroplasty of Shoulder, Knee and Ankle
  • Join Replacements (Hip, Knee, Shoulder)
  • Sports Injuries (which includes variety of Arthroscopy Surgery)
  • Orthopaedic and Spine Trauma
  • Foot and Ankle Surgeries

Our orthopaedic care is supported by our very own KPJ KL Rehabilitation Centre which is fully equipped with the latest and complete range of equipments which includes the ALTER G Anti Gravity treadmill and the ALTER G Bionic Leg. These are specialized equipment meant to help in the rehabilitation of patients with specific needs for the lower limbs.

The Alter G Treadmill is the most versatile equipment available in the market. It is a machine that can reduce the weight of a patient and allows the person to walk with ease. So the application is for a wide range of uses. For Orthopaedic cases, the machine helps to reduce the strain onto the joints of the lower limbs including the Hip, Knee and Ankle. So the application can be used for a wide range of Osteoarthritis, Post-operative intervention of the Hips, Knees and Ankles, Post Sports injury of the Lower Limbs. It gives the therapist the freedom to rehabilitate any injury to the patients and allows the patient freedom of movement in as normal a situation as possible. For Neuro cases it encourages freedom to move without fear of falling. It is ideal for Stroke cases but also any case where balance is an issue

The Bionic Leg is used to encourage strengthening and stability for the lower limb. It is especially useful in unilateral leg problems. Ideal for patients with stroke but also for any Orthopaedic cases where the limbs has 'forgotten' how to function due to 'avoidance' because of pain. The Bionic Leg is used for re-training the injured leg to give the added assistance it needs. In doing so, it will relearn on how it needs to function normally. It is ideal for Post ACL reconstruction, Post Arthroscopic surgery for the knee and if suitable, Post Total Knee Replacement.

We also have the BTE Primus which is a work simulator. The main use of this machine is for our Back-to-Work program by PERKESO but it can be used for all Orthopedic cases. It is a specific retraining device that focuses on a specific task that the patient has difficulty in doing. It can be set to strengthen that area of weakness or pain and developed to the point that it is functionally useful. The only limitation of the machine is the creativity of the therapist. It is so versatile that it can be used for any injuries, including sports related injuries. The machine is able to assess and generate a report for the employers on the state of health the employee has in carrying out his duties.

Knowing that rehabilitation is an important component of the treatment plan, the focus is on the accurate diagnosis, proper identification of roles, cooperation among the different disciplines and ensuring the patient returns to a quality life that is deemed most acceptable.

We have a dedicated Rehabilitation Centre at KPJ Tawakkal Health Centre headed by Consultant Rehabilitation Physician; whilst Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy Services are available at KPJ Tawakkal Specialist Hospital. This newly renovated and well-equipped hospital boasts of the latest and the complete range of equipment. Our centre provides services on rehabilitation physician, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, rehabilitation nurse, speech & language pathologist, physiologist, and orthoptist and prosthetist.
