Bacterial infections after blood removal brain surgery (stroke).
Currently under 3rd dose of antibiotic injection, which is told to be the final dose for the patient.

Found out that bacteriophage therapy might be the solution to the problem. Is there anywhere in Malaysia that provide this service?

Hi, thank you for reaching out to us.

Regarding your inquiry, we do not know which center provide the treatment. You have to contact the respective healthcare facility to find out whether they provide the treatment or not. In addition, we do not think it is available locally as it is not approved in the United States and Europe.

If you have any further question, you may contact us at (DoctorOnCall) to speak with our doctors online via phone call. Thank you.
