Chong Wei Will Be Given Best Treatment Available - Dr Ramlan

SEPANG, May 23 (Bernama) -- The National Sports Institute (ISN) will send a team of medical specialists to check the injury suffered by national shuttler Datuk Lee Chong Wei before deciding on the best form of treatment.

"A team of specialists in radiology, orthopedic and physiotherapy will be send to Chong Wei's house tomorrow to decide on the treatment and hospital to be sent for such treatment," said ISN Chief Executive Officer Datuk Dr Ramlan Abdul Aziz.

Dr Ramlan said: "It is still early to speculate on Chong Wei's injury before carrying out any tests. We will check him...look at his physical condition and the MRI report that he has brought back. Maybe we will need a more detailed MRI because the earlier one was done in an emergency situation," he said.

Based on the report from the medical officer who treated his injury in Wuhan, China, the injury could take three to four weeks to heal and that was a reasonable assessment but there is a need for an in-depth picture of his injury, he said.

Chong Wei who injured his ankle during his Thomas Cup Group C match against Peter Gade of Denmark yesterday, arrived in a wheelchair at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA) at 6.25pm, accompanied by officials from the National Sports Council and the Badminton Association of Malaysia.
