My friend sent me this information:

He is in the orthopedics department. The number I have
is 2312-3456 ex. 5273. You can arrange an appointment
to see him online at the NTU hospital orthopedics
department web site (but you must have someone who can

Taiwan. Dr.Jiang is a a specialist in hip and knee

4th-follow up visit 2 weeks after surgery to remove
