Mucopolysaccharidoses:Mr. Liu, China

MacKay Memorial Hospital   Last Update:2014-10-20

Liu spent much of his life suffering from a rare genetic disorder known as Mucopolysaccharidoses or MPS. In addition to joint pain, stiffness and organ abnormalities, the disease impacted her breathing and his symptoms grew worse each year. Treatment options in his homeland were limited; then he turned to Mackay Memorial Hospital for help.

Making the relatively short journey to neighboring Taiwan, Liu was met by a team of medical professionals at MMH, whose full-service International Medical Service Center coordinated all of his travel arrangements and visa requirements.

After several treatments, many of Liu’s symptoms have been alleviated and his overall health condition has improved greatly. While there is no known cure for MPS, Liu returns to MMH annually for a checkup and routine treatments.
