Surgeon

Since Skyman started a topic on house painters, it reminded me that I wanted to start topics on many subjects for services that that are often passed on word-of-mouth. In other words, if you don't have contacts, you don't find the person or company that provides the service. I will start these threads on as many types of services as I can. Note: I consider any specialty as a service, so you will see painters, plumbers, carpenters, masons, electricians, lawyers, medical specialties, dental specialties, diesel mechanics, gasoline engine mechanics, LPG engine mechanics and conversion, brake repair, auto body and paint, auto electric systems, etc. Also, if you think of other specialties that I miss, let me know, and I will add a topic. I will pin all of these topics, so they stick around over time.

 

So...if you know of a SURGEON (GENERAL or SPECIALIZED) that you would recommend, please put the doctor's name, whatever contact information you have, where he or she is located (town or city and address of his office), what hospitals he or she is affiliated and why you would recommend this doctor over others. Also, if you know details (like other specialties, years in practice, patient interactions), I'm sure that would be helpful to a lot of other members.

I owe my life to these Doctors at Cebu Doctors Hospital.

 

Dr. Arnold Tan is a surgeon no phone number but if you have to go to hospital ask for him and he has a great group of Doctors on his staff. He is at both hospitals Chungwa ? and Cebu Doctors Hospital

 

 Dr. Peter Mancao 254-9246 office. Never met another Doctor like him and still to this day I communicate with him. These Doctors really care about you and it's not all about money

Sorry if this has already been asked, but right now I'm in a hurry and don't have the time to back read. I just had to post this question real quick. So my dad who's diabetic had a motorcycle crash a while back. A doctor in Leyte put stainless steel inside his leg but never stitched the surgical cut close (his reason? let the skin close by itself) . Two years later, the wound is still not healed. I got news last night that the wound is infected and the infection has now affected the bone (sorry to gross you out). I want my dad to go to Cebu (or Manila if needs be) ASAP to 1.) remove infected bone tissues if such service is provided there and 2.) to have the stainless steel removed. Has anybody here had a good and bad experience with surgery in either Cebu or Manila and can recommend a good doctor for this case? Thanks!

I think this is likely your best advice. German man I knew was in accident this year with injuries similar to your dad's... needing steel pin. Was treated at state hospital Vicente Soto in Cebu City. Took WEEKS to get the steel pin he needed.. Far too long. For SURE I would NOT suggest that hospital (Vicente Soto). Cebu Doctors and Chung Hua both have good reputation.

 

Should be no need to go to Manila for this.

 

I don't know speciality for Arnold Tan.. but from sound of it you need broken bones specialist.

 

Start thinking now how you will get him admitted to hospital. Will you be with him? Do you have PhilHeath coverage? Credit Card? Ask those questions.

There is also a orthopedic specialist hospital/clinic (hip and knee replacements) in Makati.. Name escapes me but it was the only place I could find in PI that did such surgeries. Number of doctors there educated in USA.

Thank you for the replies. I prefer to have my dad go to Cebu as him and my mom are already pretty familiar with the place. to_dave007, my dad does have PhilHealth but I'll have to pay for what it won't cover. No, I won't be with him but my mom will be.  I'll tell my mom to give Dr. Tan a call. I really appreciate the referral. :)

Can anyone give me an idea of the current consultation fee in Cebu? CDUH, Chong-Hua, Velez, Perpetual Succor, etc. doesn't matter.

You also might try Dr. Tony San Juan at the Chung Hua Orthopedic Clinic, basement of the Chung Hua Medical Arts bldg.  He is also US educated and supposed to be one of the top orthopedic surgeons in Cebu.  Also a very nice guy!

 

This number is several years old but worth a try: 032 254-3835

You should be able to find whatever specialties and doctors you wish at these two hospitals.

spelled laparoscopically.. wouldn't have known it if I hadn't wondered what the word meant... kind of like the old arthroscopic surgery for knees. Thanks.. Learn something new every day.
