She led the team, including urologists from Princess Margaret Hospital and toxicologists from United Christian Hospital, which reported the first 10 cases in Hong Kong with contracted bladder and upper urinary tract damage associated with ketamine abuse. This discovery has raised the Hong Kong Government’s and the community’s awareness of the social problems associated with Ketamine abuse.
