The SMG Orthopaedic Group is a one-stop orthopaedic clinic located at 290 Orchard Road, Paragon in Singapore. It specialises in Spine Surgery, Hip Replacements, Trauma Care, General and Paediatric Orthopaedics, and Musculoskeletal and Sports Injuries.
The clinic is headed by Dr. Andrew Quoc Dutton, a highly experienced orthopaedic surgeon whose specialty includes Arthroscopic/Keyhole and Sports Surgery, Knee and Hip Replacements, and Cartilage Regeneration. He holds an MBBS degree (Australia) and MMed in Orthopaedic Surgery (Singapore). He is also a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons (Edinburgh) and Harvard Orthopaedic Surgery (USA). He has over 17 years of experience and pioneered the computer guided surgery in the region.

To achieve these, the clinic has invested heavily to obtain the most advanced equipment and technologies while Dr. Dutton uses only proven effective techniques and methods.
