“ADMC offers the latest in sports injury treatment. Every injury doesn’t require a surgery. Many are treated conservatively by proper medication and rehabilitation. But for severe injuries that require surgery, our surgeons perform minimally invasive procedures that allows them to use modern technology and advanced surgical techniques. This type of surgery reduces the risk of complications and damage to surrounding muscle and tissue. Such procedures are considered to be safer and patients require less hospital time and less recovery time, said Miranda Harumal, Hospital CEO, Ara Damansara Medical Centre. “Our comprehensive Rehabcentric has customised performance programs that helps athletes build sport-specific skills that may help avoid injuries in the first place. ADMC Rehab team can guide and help athletes to be fit for their prolong career.” mentioned Miranda Harumal.
