    I will take him tomorrow early to HK then.

    Your suggestion of a plastic surgeon is a good one, can any of you recommend one which I can take my baby to?

    The urgent care (different from the A&E, more like a walk in GP clinic) GPs at Adventist do stitches. Most of them also have private practice hours where they will do them - know a bunch of friends kids who have been stitched up there with good results. Dr. Maria Wong did mine a day after a nasty dog bite and the scarring is minimal.

    HK Adventist on the island has two resident plastic surgeons (see link above). May want to give the hospital a ring to see if either are available on short notice. Have always found the quality of care at Advrntist to be excellent, and generally it isn't too busy. Downside is that it is quite a ways from Shenzhen.

    St Paul hospital also has a plastic surgeon. Best call and ask several private hospital to see if the surgeons will be there. All doctors speak English. And all reception and nurses will speak some English at the private hospitals.
