Hospital Advice Required

Just after some local info here if possible.

I have an Abdominal Hernia which has slowly increased in size over the past few years.   Can anybody recommend a Doctor/Specialist here in Cebu who would be competent enough to check this out for me.   I am living in Dumaguete but tend to visit Cebu regularly and figure I have more and better options in Cebu than Dumaguete.

Perhaps somebody on LinC has had an operation of this nature here?

Thanks in Advance.

If you don’t get a response from LinC members who know a surgeon, you can search the archives for info on the topic.  I recall some discussions on the topics of hernia and surgery in general.

Hernia surgery is pretty common and a general surgeon should be able to handle your request.  Main query is likely whether the surgeon will do it endoscopic or otherwise.  
 

Doesn't Dumaguete have a UP Siliman?

I was in the Silliman University Medical Center for over a month in a brand new private room.  Doctors and staff were excellent. My wife had an emergency appendectomy there several years later and she also had a good experience. Well except that the surgeon charged us full price even though he had been paid by Phil Health for a portion of the surgery…

UP stands for the University of the Philippines, but it doesn't really matter because Silliman University isn't affiliated with UP. There is a UP Diliman, but it is in the Metro Manila area and not Dumaguete. They are two unrelated universities.
