NSI to re-look into Hamzaruddin's case

KUALA LUMPUR: The case of injured national artistic gymnast Mohd Hamza­ruddin Nordin is being re-looked.

Datuk Dr Ramlan Aziz, who is the advisor to Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin and a senior medical consultant, assured that the interests of national athlete are the top priority of the National Sports Institute (NSI). 

He said that many surgical cases of athletes are referred to the NSI’s medical associates, including several private hospitals, with the approval from the in-house medical team.

“Hamzaruddin was referred to a surgeon in good faith and the surgical procedure was carried out after the surgeon had made his own assessments. The patient has informed us of his dissatisfaction,” said Dr Ramlan, the former NSI chief executive officer.

The 23-year-old Hamzaruddin had suffered a torn ligament in a finger on his right hand but claimed that the surgeon had operated on a different area during surgery in January last year.

“We have gathered all the information. I will assist the medical team in NSI to study the facts and talk to the patient and parents ... we will see how to proceed further.”
