百分百的玫瑰崗人

1974年起至1989年,從幼兒園、小學、中學直至中七畢業,容醫生的校園歲月都是玫瑰崗學校度過,可說是一個不折不扣的「玫瑰崗人。於1995年,他在香港中文大學醫學院主修矯形外科及創傷學系,自2000年起更專研骨科運動醫學及關節鏡手術。目前,他擔任香港威爾斯親王醫院矯形外科及創傷學系副顧問醫生兼運動醫學部主任、香港運動醫學及科學學會會長,以及香港賽馬會運動醫學及健康科學中心執行總監他亦是香港足球總會醫,熱衷參與多項運動賽事的醫療支援工作。於2009年,容醫生選為「香港十大傑出青年」,以表揚他對社會和業界的貢獻。容醫生取得驕人成就,為母校增光,實在令全體校友非常鼓舞,讓我們再次向容醫生報以熱烈的掌聲!

他至愛的足球! 醫生的多個銜頭,便可知道他的專長就是運動醫學。其實,醫生本身也是一位運動健將,並特別鍾情於足球,而他對足球的熱愛,便是在玫瑰崗開始萌芽。除了是足球校隊的一份子外,他亦參與了校外的青年球隊。身為校隊隊長的醫生,在中五時更曾帶領球隊勇奪校際足球比賽冠軍。玫瑰崗的足球場,滿載了醫生很多愉快難忘的回憶 

為了爭取時間練習或比賽,容醫生經常犧牲午飯,結果總是空著肚,帶著滿身汗水,回到課室上課。有一次,他在比賽中撞斷了鼻樑,當他被送到醫院時,醫生竟然在沒有施麻醉藥的情況下,用大鉗子替他矯正鼻骨!直到現在,容博士還記得那陣難以忍受的劇痛!

現在醫生仍有與他的兒時「波友」保持聯絡,並不時參加不同球隊的比賽,例如中大舊生會、由他與退役職業球員組成的「沙田友」,亦會經常與警察足球隊踢友誼賽。 在父親的薰陶下,醫生讀小一的兒子已非常喜歡足球,每當爸爸帶他到球場看球賽,他都會興奮得手舞足蹈!

從玫瑰崗踏上骨科醫生之路

 

與大部份的學生一樣,求學時期的容醫生並未定下自己的事業路向。能夠當上醫生,就好像是上天的安排,若然他在玫瑰崗的不同階段,作出了不同的抉擇,他的人生便可能截然不同。早在中五時,他已向大學提早申請入讀生物化學,並已獲得取錄,但他卻選擇接受哥哥的建議,繼續完成高中課程。

在中六時,他跟隨他的首個女朋友修讀生物學,並額外自修中國文化研究。完成中七後,在高級程度會考放榜的那一天,他好同學的一番笑言:「Patrick,以你的成績應該申請醫學院!」竟造就了他踏上醫科之路。容醫生以本身的成績單,再加上「巧合」選修的兩個必修科目,申請入讀香港中文大學醫科。經過兩輪面試後,結果他獲得取錄!然而,他卻要面對另一個人生交叉點,就是他亦同時獲香港大學牙科系及香港理工大學會計系取錄,起初他選擇跟同學一起入讀會計系,但最後他再次聽從哥哥的意見,選擇了中文大學醫科。  

容醫生在大學輕鬆地享受校園生活,並參加了大學的足球隊,延續他對足球的熱情。於1991年,他在代表大學參加一場香港對廣州的足球比賽中,膝部十字韌帶不幸受傷,但他仍堅持繼續踢球,結果因為膝部無法承受劇烈活動,所以飽受膝傷困擾,自此他需經常到威爾斯親王醫院接受膝部治療。在本科課程畢業後,容醫生才接受手術根治傷患,並需留醫一段頗長時間。其間,他與醫院骨科部的醫護人員熟落起來,及後在挑選專科時,便毫不猶豫地選擇了骨科!

他的啟蒙恩師-陳漢欽老師

在玫瑰崗期間,陳漢欽老師可算是容醫生的啟蒙恩師,其中有兩次經歷更讓他印象難忘。首次的經歷是發生在中二開學第一天,當時容醫生正乘坐校巴回校,陳漢欽老師突然坐在他身邊,問他對新學年的準備,但他的腦袋卻一片空白,陳老師就請他擔任班長。自此之後,容醫生更專注學業,成績亦有很大的進步。容醫生認為,班長一職給予他正面的鼓勵及肯定,並為其他同學樹立榜樣。由中二起直至中七,他都是班長的不二人選呢! 

第二次是發生在中六,那時候醫生十分投入與女朋友的戀情,有一天放學,一臉嚴肅的陳老師把他帶到一旁,問他是否正在拍拖,當容醫生已準備接受一頓嚴厲訓斥,甚至不准談戀愛之際,陳老師竟教他如何好好管理拍拖和學業的時間!容醫生不但認真領會及實踐陳老師的教誨,也老師身上學到許多做人的道理,培養出正直誠實的個性。

對運動醫學的期望

容醫生獲頒發「十大傑出青年2009」殊榮,歸功於對香港和國際運動醫學作出的貢獻。然而他強調,這項成就是團體合作的成果,此獎項更應屬於他的團隊及整個香港運動醫學界。他們在背後默默耕耘,理應獲得認同和肯定,但是由於業界的資源相當有限,他們的努力在過去並沒有好好得到嘉許。因此,他希望此獎項能夠提升大眾對運動醫學的關注,從而在各方面獲得政府更多投資和直接支持。他亦期望香港運動醫學能在短時間內,提升至英國和意大利等領先國家的水準,尤其在足球方面,繼而推廣至所有運動領域。同時,為了展示香港舉辦亞運會等國際體育活動的能力,我們必須以符合國際水平的運動醫學作支援。

容醫生亦指出,香港的運動醫學已具備專業人才,惟仍需要政府給予更多資源。令人鼓舞的是,特別在香港舉辦北京奧運馬術比賽等國際體育盛事之後,越來越多私人機構或個別人士開始對業界提供支援,香港賽馬會最近亦為成立運動醫學和科學中心撥捐一筆款項。我們希望這個趨勢能夠延續下去。

玫瑰崗同學的話及座右銘

能夠與玫瑰崗的學生分享幾句話嗎?容醫生就回道,其實每位同學都有很多機會,他們應該好好珍惜,善用這裡美好的環境-寬敞的校園提供各式設施,讓同學自由自在地發展不同的興趣,學校也擁有優秀的教師,對每個學生給予關懷和照料!此外,由幼稚園至高中,容醫生一直在玫瑰崗學校茁壯成長,自母校學習重要的基本知識,為他的未來發展建立穩固基礎。身為醫生的他,現在仍與許多同學及老師保持聯繫,而有趣的是,當中有不少更是他的病人。數年前,Xavier神父仍然在港的時候,容醫生不時會回校探望他。 

容醫生今天的成就,看來好像是集運氣、時機和命運於一身,但他卻強調,為未來作好準備才是箇中關鍵,簡單來說,即世上是沒有免費午餐的!如果你沒有充足準備,即使面前有許多機會,你也不能好好把握。就以容醫生作為例子,早在67年前,香港根本沒有人認識運動醫學,但其實這個範疇的工作已進行了一段時間,直至最近舉行的北京奧運會和東亞運動會,才得到大眾更多關注。如果運動醫學在這兩年才倉促進行發展,其成果亦可能不會如此矚目。  此外,容醫生認為保持對工作的興趣亦同樣重要。

雖然平日工作繁重,但容醫生仍對運動醫學充滿熱誠,並時刻樂在其中!他相信只要全心全意投入工作,便會得到別人的欣賞。  最後,當問到容醫生的座右銘時,他笑說其實沒有什麼特別,除了要找一個好的女朋友,並聽從她的意見!不管怎樣,他認為我們應按照自己的興趣,尋找能為社會作出獨特貢獻的領域,然後朝目標勇往直前,就能享受為它工作的每一刻,但最重要的是,還是能每天作好準備,迎接機會! 

 

On one chilled and quiet Saturday morning of January 2010, the RHS football court was lit up with a number of keyed up RHS Alumni, who came all the way back to their alma mater for catching up with their old schoolmate, Dr. Patrick Yung – the winner of the “Ten Outstanding Young Persons 2009”. Father Francisco also showed up and gave them a warm welcome and his congratulations to Dr. Yung. The old schoolmates then began to warm up by a few rounds of Dr. Yung’s favorite football game. While the beaming sun started to radiate, the jazzed up team took a break and started to share the tidbits and photos of the old school days. All these led to a perfect and cheerful kickoff for this issue’s Rosarian’s Interview with Dr. Patrick Yung.

An Absolute Rosarian

Dr. Yung studied at RHS since 1974 from Kindergarten to Primary and Secondary School up to From 7 in 1989 - an absolute Rosarian indeed. He then went to Medical School at CUHK and specialized in Orthopaedics and Traumatology in 1995 and further expertized in the field of Orthopaedics Sports Medicine and Arthroscopic Surgery since 2000. Currently he is the Consultant & Team Head in the Division of Orthopaedics Sports Medicine, Department of Orthopaedics and Traumatology in the Prince of Wales Hospital; the President of the Hong Kong Association of Sports Medicine & Sports Science; and also the Deputy Director of Hong Kong Jockey Club Sports Medicine and Health Sciences Centre. He is also the team doctor for the Hong Kong Football Association supporting the team medically in various matches. He has been awarded the prize of "Ten Outstanding Young Persons" of Hong Kong in 2009, in recognition of his contribution to the communities and his professions. This is indeed very encouraging news to all Rosarians - A big round of applause again to Dr. Yung!

His dedicated love – Football!

From the many titles of Dr. Yung as stated above, our readers can probably tell his specialized focus - Sports Medicine. In fact he is also a definite sportsman himself, and an especially dedicated one in football. His passion for football has been seeded since his days in RHS. He joined not only the school football team but also some youth team outside RHS. He was also the school football team captain and led them to the winning of the inter-school champion when he was in Form 5. Plentiful of happy and unforgettable memories came from the RHS football fields. School lunch hours were always exchanged for football practice or matches and “comboed” with empty roaring tummy and body all soaked in sweat afterwards. His nose was once broken in a school match. When he was taken to the hospital, the doctor fixed his nose merely with a big clumsy clamp without anesthesia! Dr. Yung still recalled visibly the deadly unbearable pain! Even nowadays Dr. Yung still keeps in touch with his childhood footie mates and plays regularly in different teams like the CU Old Students’ Association, “Friends of Shatin”- a group formed by him and some retired professional players, and has frequent friendly matches with the HK Police Force team. Like father like son, Dr. Yung’s son, now at Primary 1 only, is already very much into football and gets ever so excited each time when his father brings him to see the live local matches!

His destined path from RHS to Medicine and Orthopaedics

Like most students, Dr. Yung was unsure of his career path when at school. Yet becoming a doctor was like a path destined for him and his life could have been a complete different one if he has made several slightly different choices at different stages at RHS.  When he was in Form 5, he applied for early university acceptance for Biochemistry and was accepted. But he chose to continue his secondary school study instead according to his brother’s advice. When he was in From 6, he picked Biology and an extra self–study subject on Chinese Studies simply following his first girlfriend. Upon completion of Form 7, on the day when the A-level result was out, triggered by a half mocking joke by a close classmate (“Hey Patrick, you should stake your application for Medicine with such results!”), Dr. Yung applied for CUHK for Medicine with the two prerequisite subjects taken “coincidently”. After two rounds of interview, Dr. Yung actually got accepted! And here came another decision point - He actually got accepted by HKU for Dental Study and also PolyU for Accounting and he opted to go for Accounting with a schoolmate. But his brother came into the scene again and at the end Dr. Yung picked CUHK for Medicine accordingly. Dr. Yung has been at ease with his university life and enjoyed much of it. He was also in the school football team and his zeal for football was everlasting. Unfortunately in 1991, his knee’s cruciate ligament was broken in a football match when he represented the University team for Hong Kong against that of GuangZhou’s. Since then, he became a frequent visitor to the Prince of Wales Hospital for his knee treatment as he insisted to continue the vigorous football exercise which the knee in fact could not afford and resulted in recurrent injuries. Upon graduation of undergraduate school, he finally had an operation on it. He was then hospitalized for a quite long period and got mingled well with the whole Orthopaedics department at the hospital. Subsequently when it was time to pick his subject for specialization, Orthopaedics was the natural choice without hesitation!

His enlightener – Mr. Damen Chan

Dr. Yung remembered vividly two occasions at RHS where Mr. Damen Chan has “enlightened” him profoundly. The first one happened on the first day of school in Form 2. While he was on his way back to campus in the school bus, Mr. Chan suddenly popped up sitting next to him and asked about his preparation for the year. Dr. Yung’s mind was a complete blank and Mr. Chan invited him to be monitor of the class. Since then, Dr. Yung became more attentive to his schoolwork and has advanced considerably. The role as monitor was like a positive reinforcement and recognition to him as others’ role model. He actually became the class monitor straight from Form 2 to Form 7!  

The second one took place in Form 6 when Dr. Yung was fondly, sweetly and busily in love with his girlfriend of that time. One day after school he was grabbed by rather stern looking Mr. Chan to a corner and asked if he was dating with someone. Dr. Yung was expecting a harsh lesson or even some threatening nagging to stop dating. But to his utmost surprise, Mr. Chan actually taught him about time management on both love and schoolwork! And it proved Mr. Chan’s teaching worked as Dr. Yung did put into good practice ever since after. Indeed Mr. Chan has inspired Dr. Yung in many ways for being an upright man.

His aspirations in Sports Medicine

Dr. Yung’s winning of the “Ten Outstanding Young Persons 2009” was attributed to his contribution to Sports Medicine in Hong Kong and internationally. But he stressed that the accomplishment was an explicit result of teamwork and the award should belong to his whole team and also all those in Sports Medicine field in HK. They should be acknowledged for their endeavoring behind the stage all along. Yet pitifully the resources available in this field have been awfully limited and their efforts have not been properly appreciated much in the past. Hence he hopes this prize will help lead to a higher awareness from the public on Sports Medicine and ultimately more decent Government’s investment and direct support in all ways. He aspires that the standard of Sports Medicine in HK will catch up in short while with those leading countries like England and Italy, primarily in football and eventually to all sports domains. Likewise in order to demonstrate Hong Kong’s capability to campaign for worldwide sports event like the Asian Games, it is essential to have a competent Sports Medicine support with international ranking level. Dr. Yung also pointed out that in fact Hong Kong is already well-equipped with expertise in the field bu
