Dr Chan Kok Yu performed the knee surgery and we were allowed to go to the hospital on Friday.

Louis, Lowyat

I went for second opinion, Gleneagles, Dr. Chan Kok Yu. He's very knowledgeable and able to answer all my questions and doubts before and also after the surgery.

The ACL physical examination MRI results were normal. So the doctor only recommends physiotherapy.
