Dr. Tho is actively involved in the management of professional sportsmen and was team physician to the national soccer team and S-League teams. Treatment of ligament injuries around the knee, ankle and shoulder form a big part of his work. Most injuries can be treated nonsurgically with medications, injections and physiotherapy. Injections of joint lubricant in the knee or ankle joints can help reduce pain and swelling, allowing many sportsmen and soccer players to get back to competition. When required, arthroscopic reconstruction or repair of these ligaments will be done. Common arthroscopic procedures include anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, posterior cruciate ligament reconstruction, meniscus repair, shoulder joint ligament reconstruction for recurrent dislocation, rotator cuff repair as well as joint debridement of the knee, shoulder, hip and ankle. Total joint replacement and uni-condylar knee replacements as well as shoulder and hip replacement surgeries are done in severely damaged joints in older patients. Dr. Tho is also active in various sports organisation and bodies.
