    Urgent!! - Good orthopedics/pediatric surgery?

    I need some advice urgently!!

    My son fell down from sofa 2 nights ago. Actually, he does fall very often but this time he hurt his shoulder pretty badly. We went to see a doctor at Canossa soon after the incident but they examined totally different part of his body (legs) and took some X-rays although I claimed the pain must be coming from somewhere upper his body.

    He is still in pain and I see that one of his shoulders is swollen. I would like to take him to get a proper check as soon as possible. Would anyone pls advise me which hospital/doctor is good for orthopedics/pediatric surgery?

    Thank you very very much!!

    Sorry to hear that . I can't imagine how worried you are.
    I had my knee ligament rebuilt after a ski accident back in 2006. The operation was performed by Dr Julian Chang at Adventist hospital. Dr Chang is a quite well known orthopaedist in Hong Kong, his clinique is in St George Building, no. is 25216565.
    Hope this helps and your little would get better.

    Thank you all for the info!!

    After all, I took him to Asia Medical Specialists in Cetral(recommended by a friend of my friend) as I was told that they have a specialist for children's orthopaedic surgery, and the result was (surprise or not) that his collarbone was broken!!!!!

    I understand that there is nothing you can do about that and you just need to wait to heal by itself. Though, I am really dissapointed at the doctors at Canossa. I will ever never go back there again.

    Anyway, thank you very very much for your advice!!!! I will keep the given info for my future reference. Again, thanks a lot!
