Orchard Clinic is Singapore’s most established podiatry centre for lower limb aesthetics and general care. It focuses on cellulite and stretch mark treatments, heel pain, toenail conditions, flat foot, and paediatric walking problems. It is a premiere facility specialising in providing comprehensive, holistic podiatric and lower limb care for both local patients and medical travellers in Singapore.

It also offers treatment for sports injuries, correction of postural issues such as scoliosis, and postsurgery rehabilitation care.
The centre’s goal is to provide holistic, non-invasive, and natural methods of treating musculoskeletal disorders. It also endeavours to provide specialist services for the prevention of injuries (particularly those that are sports-related) and management of various lower limb-related conditions to eliminate the need for more invasive, costly surgical procedures in the future.
The centre, which is centrally located on Orchard Road, Singapore’s famous shopping and entertainment hub, is committed to providing the highest standards of care. It features a welcoming, comfortable environment for both children and adults and is staffed by medical professionals who are sensitive to the needs of each patient.
