Dr Mathew Tung Neurosurgeon

Dr Mathew Tung

Consultant Neurosurgeon

MBBS (Singapore), FRCS (Surgical Neurology UK), FAMS

Dr. Mathew Tung specialises in treating disorders of the brain and spine. He believes that neurosurgery should always consider the non-invasive options before open surgery to attain minimum morbidity and a fast return to optimum function.

In spinal disorders, Dr. Tung aims for motion preservation, reversible treatments that can be repeated in preference to fusion. In the last 15 years he has performed operations using non-invasive techniques like stereotactic radio surgery (SRS) and stereotactic radio surgery (SRT) for brain tumours, minimally invasive techniques with endoscope-assisted method to access the pituitary adenoma, treat hydrocephalus and ventricular tumours, spinal laminectomy for spinal tumours, facet joint injections, cervical and lumbar disc replacements, spinal decompression and fusion, and endoscopic thoracic sympathectomy for sweaty palms.

Dr. Tung pursues continued medical education eagerly and keeps abreast of latest techniques by attending courses and attachment in Europe (SRS, SRT, spinal surgery and disc replacement), America (skull base approaches to acoustic neuroma) and China (endovascular techniques for vascular disorders).

When our doctor sees you, he will take a detail history and will then examine you. He uses various methods to diagnose your condition. He will then take you through the results by showing you pictures, on screen, of your tendon, ligaments,nerve or bone and will discuss your treatment options.

The treatment you receive will depend on your particular diagnosis, but may include:

  • Physiotherapy – eccentric exercises
  • Oral Medication
  • Shockwave Therapy
  • Plasma Rich Platelet Therapy
  • Guided injections
  • Specialized Surgery
  • Non-invasive Neurosurgery

Our doctor will spend time with you to make sure you understand your treatment options and so if you do have any questions you will be able to ask him during the consultation.

Common Injuries that we treat:

Tendons can become painful even without an acute injury. The pain can build over time and may be a result of the tendon responding poorly to load. This may be as a result of too much load like a lot of running, or too little in some individuals. Tendons can also be acutely injury by activities such as sprinting.

What happens to the ligament / tendon when it is injured?

Ligaments / Tendons are not classified like other soft tissue injuries because they do not seem to follow a normal healing pattern. Instead they can develop an altered structure which makes then less able to cope with the load that is being applied e.g. from a sport.

How can we help?

Ligaments / Tendons are not easy to treat and in the wrong hands, it can mean spending a lot of time out of sport without actually progressing. It is really important to get an accurate diagnosis as the treatment can be very different depending on what has happened to the tendon.

Our team of clinicians can ensure that you have an accurate diagnosis, which will be made by a combination of your history and an examination. You may also need an xray scan or MRI, which can be performed on site. You will be then given an appropriate treatment programme and monitored throughout to ensure you are responding appropriately.
