Orthopaedic-Chordoma

 

Mr. NG, an Indonesian, was diagnosed chordoma for many years. Because of the huge chordoma and the restriction of the medical resource, he was failure getting a surgery at the local hospital.

However, his young sister, who had married to Taiwanese, knowing the medical level of Taiwan, so tried to contact Taipei VGH IMSC by e-mail. Through continuing communicated with us and the medical team, they accepted the arrangement of our Orthopaedic Dr. Wei-Ming Chen. Mr. NG had admission on 3/18, then got surgery by the team of Dr. Wei-Ming Chen, and recover on 4/25, regularly came back for radiation therapy, then went back to Indonesia on 7/9.

This is the thanks letter that Mr. NG sent to our superintendent, translated as below.
