    Dear Dr,

    I have cervical spondylosis, should i go for neurosurgeon. Kindly advice

    • 15 April, 2018 at 9:34 AM

      Dear M Yeong
      Cervical spondylosis is due to wear and tear of the spine with advancing age. Approach to this depends on whether there are any symptoms. These may range from discomfort/pain and limitation of activity to neurological impairment.
      Do consult your family doctor for a preliminary assessment.

    Dear Doc. I sustained a C6/C7 incomplete spinal cord injury as a result of a motor accident in April 2012. I am currently wheel chair bound and paralysed below my chest. I am diabetic and am on continuous catheter to drain my bladder. I am 55 years of age. Please advice if stem cell therapy would help me and what I can expect from the treatment. Thank you.

      Dear Raman
      We are indeed sorry to hear of your unfortunate injury. Stem cell therapy is indeed under intensive study in top research centres and we await eagerly for news of successful outcomes. Realistically, this is likely to be years in the future. Progress is in slow steps as the methodology is very complex. At this juncture, you must accept that all on-going stem cell methods (there are quite a few) are considered experimental and it is best to wait for results that are safe, clearly beneficial and reproducible.
      In the mean time, you are advised to maintain the best possible medical status and fitness level.
      Best wishes.

    Dear Doctor,

    My father 59 years old was diagnosed with Motor Neuron Disease, What method of treatment or specific treatment available to treat this disease. Can you explain how, in which the perfect place to treat this disease.

    • 15 May, 2017 at 4:42 PM

      Dear En Hazwan
      Motor neuron disease is a chronic degenerative condition for which there is as yet no cure. Currently, the only medication approved for treatment is Riluzole which was shown to confer a survival benefit, i.e. delayed its progression.
      Research is on-going for a number of medications and various forms of cell replacement therapy. All are in early stages of development and not yet ready for routine clinical use.
      Other than medication, continuous physiotherapy and exercise at the appropriate level are needed to preserve muscle and to prevent joint contracture (stiffening).
      The above management is best supervised by a neurologist and rehab team. If and when feeding and respiration become compromised, they will institute the necessary supportive measures.
      Best wishes.

    Hi Doctor,

    My husband is 40 years old with motor neuron disease. Is her condition can be treated?

    Thanks & Regards,

    • 18 May, 2016 at 7:02 PM

      Dear Md Ee
      Once there is a confirmed diagnosis of Motor Neuron Disease, management should be provided by a team of neuro and other medical specialists who would treat the condition and any of its complications, working together with physiotherapists.
      MND treatment therefore encompasses more than just medications. As for disease modifying drugs, Riluzole is currently the only approved agent.
      Best regards.

    Dear kind doctors,

    My brother had a stroke and the doctor said his condition is not optimistic.

    1. He is still in a coma since he got a stroke yesterday.
    2. He cannot breathe without respiratory machine.
    3. CT scan showed that there is blockage in his brain and has high pressure, but doctors here not willing to operate on him.

    VERY Urgent help and second opinion is needed! Please help! Please!

    • 10 October, 2015 at 3:46 PM

      Dear Milsey

      Your brother appears to be in a critical condition. If you wish to have a second opinion, you need to request his doctors to provide the names of the appropriate specialist who can visit him at his hospital.

      Best wishes, Webmaster

    Dear Doctor,

    i have a friend who experienced some seizures or attack. and now it becomes quite frequent. last friday for the first time i saw his eyes was all white and his mouth was bubbling. but when i asked him about the accident, surprisingly,he didn’t realised or noticed what was happen to him at that time. would appreciate your kind advise doctor.

    • 1 October, 2015 at 9:49 AM

      Dear Nor

      We appreciate your concern for your friend. It is only appropriate to give advice when all the facts about his medical condition and medications are available. Do persuade your friend to consult his doctor. If in doubt, it would be good to have a relative or friend to accompany him on his check up visits, so that clarifications can be sought.

      Best wishes, Webmaster

    Dear Doctor

    My daughter has been diagnosed with Cerebella Tonsillar Octopia with 5MM after MRI SCAN.

    No evident of syringomyelia noted at cervical spine

    No hydrocephalus

    Is her condition can be treated? Is the surgery dangerous? How much will be the costs?

    • 10 September, 2015 at 8:13 AM

      Dear Mr Kee Lam,
      Cerebellar tonsillar ectopia can be treated with Gardner’s operation i.e. Craniovertebral decompression which is a straightforward and safe micro neurosurgery procedure.
      Operation takes about one and half hours and requires hospital stay of 3-4 days.
      Thank you.

    我叫莉,我妹妹24岁。19天前说他很辛苦,结果晕倒了。在送院的路途中有做CPR 20分钟直到医院。在急救时,做了6次的cardiac defibrillation。医生也说心脏曾经停止长达45分钟。我妹因脑缺氧而脑肿和积水。在这两个星期,心跳正常了,头脑也消肿了一些。但我妹还是在睡觉状态。跟她说话,她好像懂。我想问下脑部专科,有没有其他治疗可以帮到我妹?谢谢你的宝贵意见。感恩!

    Dear Dr,
    My dad had an accident a month ago, he had the spinal cord injury . He had underwent an operation (decompressive laminectomies). Recently he claimed that he neck had some painful / uncomfortable. May i know what should i need to do now? Is there any doctor will accept my dad’s case for further diagnosis ?

    • 17 June, 2015 at 5:51 PM

      Dear Macy

      You should consult the surgeon who treated your father for further management. This could involve any of the following: medications for neuropathic pain, physiotherapy, nerve block or further surgery.


    • 16 July, 2015 at 11:35 AM

      Dear Macy,

      YOUR EMAIL WAS CAUGHT IN THE SPAM FILTER. We regret the delayed reply. Below is Dr Lee’s response:

      I would suggest he sees a neurosurgeon and have a thorough neurological assessment and MRI of the relevant segment of the spine (based on the clinical examination result) to see whether there is any nerve compression from the injury.
      Thank you.

    Hi doctor lee,
    my mom had a very severe trigeminal neutralgia sinCE last year. I would like to seek your help to reduce my mom pain except oral medication.

    • 28 March, 2015 at 4:12 PM

      Dear Ms Lim

      Severe neuralgia may need rather strong pain medications which can only be prescribed after careful study of the condition as well as the general health status of your Mum. You are advised to have her consult a neurologist for proper assessment.

    Dear Dr. Lee,

    Good Day!

    I have read your comment regarding to: “Stem cell treatment for strokes and other central nervous system condition is still considered a clinical experimental treatment and has been approved on a case by case basis by some hospitals.”

    My daughter (16 months old) has a central nervous system retarded (suspended CHARGE syndrome), may I know the stem cell transplat can help my daughter or not? While i have store her cord blood as well.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Jessie Tan

      Dear Jessie

      For information, we don’t manage genetic conditions in children. You need to consult your daughter’s paediatrician for advice, and the input of a paediatric geneticist may be helpful.

    Dr 你好,我是玉芳,今年43岁。我的右额头上凸一块出来,已有一断时间,最近觉得越来越大,摸它好像骨。不知是应该找你吗?请给意见!

    • 7 August, 2013 at 2:28 PM

      Dear 玉芳,
      按照你所形容,你額上凸出的該是ivory osteoma. 是頭颅外層長出來的。不属于腫瘤。但可能要親自看看才可斷定。

    Dear Doctor,

    I am 37 years old male with spinal problem. May i know how to upload my MRI scan and get some advise from Doctor?

    • 22 May, 2013 at 12:39 PM

      Dear Wilson,

      Thank you for your enquiry. For information, it is not the policy or within the remit of this website to provide online clinical advice.

      Meaningful medical advice requires clinical examination together with investigation results. Would you like to talk to your spine surgeon, or alternatively, make appointment to consult our neurosurgeons (contacts are on the website).

      Best wishes, Webmaster.

    Hi Doctor, because of my symptoms of weakness from cavernoma i was given epilim 250 x 2 pills per day my neurosurgeon and was given MRI with Contrast. I had a lot of symptoms even before stopping the meds which i was on for 2 months only. I now have poor blood circulation to legs (pins needles, aches) according to hematologist, had chest pains, irregular heart beat that wakes me up at nights, like sleep apnea. this is disrupting my sleep and giving me extreme fatigue. never had these issues before. Doctors asked me to exercise daily and hope many symptoms will pass. I am now at a lost why i am in this state… could i have been poisoned from gadolinium or is it the anti-seizure meds causing my system to go crazy. have you heard of anyone getting poisoned from MRI contrast doctor? many thanks..

    • 16 April, 2013 at 9:55 AM

      Dear Ping, since you have multiple symptoms and there could be many factors, you are advised to consult your family doctor, as well as your neurosurgeon, to sort this out. Gadolinium is approved worldwide for adults and children. You could consult your radiologist concerning your worries.

      Best wishes.


  17. 17 August, 2012 at 8:54 AM

    dear doctor..
    you are the best neurosurgeon in Malaysia as well as in Asia, your surgeries outcomes as well as medication managements to ur patients are the best. Ive d always recommend all my patients that come across me to be their doctor of selection. As a nursing supervisor in nurses at home.. i do proud to have a doctor like u in Malaysia. One in a million. We all are blessed to have u around.
