Ravy is a 42-year-old driver from Cambodia. There are five members in his family: his wife, his two sons, and one daughter. His wife is a homemaker and his children all study in the local public school. At home, he likes to help his wife with housework or spend time with friends.
In 2021, he was in a motorbike collision and fractured his left elbow. He was sent to a private clinic where doctors fixated hardware to heal his fracture. Hardware is usually placed across a joint to allow for proper healing, with the intention of removing the hardware at a later date to restore the motion at the joint. Now, the bone is united and he would like to remove the hardware.
Fortunately, surgeons at our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre, can help. On May 12th, Ravy will undergo a hardware removal procedure, which will cost $304. This procedure will help him to increase flexion and strength in his arm.
Ravy said: “I hope the hardware will be removed easily. I need to move my arm so I can drive again.”

Ravy made the journey to CSC to undergo the removal of hardware from his elbow. While he anticipates experiencing some pain for a few weeks, this procedure will enable him to begin strength exercises with the physiotherapy team. These activities are designed to stretch and strengthen his arm. Ravy is determined to work diligently during rehabilitation to expedite his return to work, which is estimated to take approximately six weeks. He looks forward to improved mobility, as it will allow him to assist his wife with household chores and take care of his family.
Ravy said: “I am so thankful that I was able to receive this treatment. I can get strong again for my family and support their living and school. I am very grateful to the staff at the hospital for good care.”
