First Podiatrist in Singapore
As the first podiatrist in Singapore, Tye has a deep well of experience in all areas of podiatric practice that’s drawn from over 30 years of clinical experience in Australia, Malaysia and Singapore in both the hospital and private practice settings.
Working closely with many medical specialists, his approach is a wholistic form that takes the multi-disciplinary patient-centric approach. In this way, the patient gets the best of all areas of treatment.
Among the many medical specialists he has worked closely with are:
Since graduating from Queensland University of Technology in 1990, Tye has practised his university’s motto – university for the real world, which means the approaches must have a solid sound evidence-based foundation but they must be applicable in the real world. One example – Tye has found working solutions for ladies who fear they are destined to wear “grandma” shoes all the time.
At The Podiatry Centre, you will get the evidenced-based personal treatment that you deserve, the treatment that flows from the Golden Rule – to be treated as we ourselves would want to be treated.
