The Centre for Hand and Reconstructive Microsurgery (CHARMS) is the first Hand Surgery Centre in private practice. It was founded by Dr Lim Beng Hai and established on 30th April 2004. Over the years, CHARMS has grown from strength to strength, becoming a widely recognized centre of excellence dedicated to the practice of Hand & Reconstructive Microsurgery. Our eminent surgeons, Dr Lim Beng Hai and Dr Aaron Gan, have more than 25 years of hand surgery experience combined. They both have special interest in the treatment of degenerative conditions, such as hand and wrist arthritis, trigger fingers and carpal tunnel syndrome; and sports injuries, such as hand and wrist ligament sprains and tears. This is in addition to the treatment of traumatic injuries, such as fractures and dislocations in the hand and wrist, including distal radius and forearm fractures which represent the bulk of the workload of emergency cases.
To ensure a holistic approach in the care for patients, CHARMS has developed a team of highly-trained clinical staff, including nurses, an occupational therapist and a physical therapist. At CHARMS, we believe that quality outcomes can only be derived from quality delivery of pre-, intra- and post-operative care. CHARMS attributes its successes to the selfless dedication of these staff who ensure that patients are well taken care of.
In essence, the work ethos of Dr Lim and Dr Gan are the continual improvement in standard of care, the consistent achievement of excellent results and the persistent pursuit of refined hand surgery.
