The National University Health System (NUHS), an academic health system in Singapore, has launched the National University Spine Institute (NUSI), a centre to deliver multidisciplinary care for various spinal conditions.  

NUSI, operating under the guidance of National University Hospital (NUH) Associate Professor Gabriel Liu, aims to emphasise on the institute’s patient-centric approach to setting new standards in spine care.  

It will be staffed with an experienced spine specialists’ team, supported by the latest medical practices and technology to meet the growing demands for both non-operative and operative spine treatments. 

This launch comes in response to the increasing need for comprehensive spine healthcare in Singapore’s ageing population. 

According to NUHS, Singapore’s demographic trends, showing that the country is on course to become “super-aged” by 2026, are a driving force behind NUSI’s establishment. 

The nation is projected to have one in four individuals over the age of 65 by 2030 and this shift brings age-related spinal issues such as scoliosis and degenerative disc disease to the forefront of healthcare concerns, NUHS added.

Liu said: “NUSI differentiates itself by providing dedicated sub-specialties within the spine practice, standardising work processes and providing value-driven patient care across the cluster to address spinal problems.  

“NUSI is dedicated to developing community care programmes for patients, with cases expected to rise in the coming years partly due to an ageing population.” 

The newly launched institute further offers a multidisciplinary approach that integrates the expertise of orthopaedic spine surgeons, neurosurgeons, and rehabilitation clinicians across NUHS, ensuring a seamless patient experience.  

The institute is also said to be at the forefront of spine care, offering pain management, rehabilitation medicine, and surgical procedures. 

These procedures include minimally invasive, navigation, robotic surgery, and complex techniques for a range of spinal conditions, such as spinal trauma, degenerative spine disorders, scoliosis, and spinal tumours.
