Bone, Joint and Spine Specialist Clinic started about 3 years ago at St. Louis Hospital in Tacurong City. But did you know that Dr. Remo “Bonedoc” Aguilar started treating patients with musculoskeletal problems in Tacurong since 2006?
When Dr. Aguilar went back to his hometown Tacurong City after his orthopedic training at UP-PGH, he immediately started seeing and treating orthopedic patients. He joined the Department of Orthopedics, Davao Medical Center in 2007 as a Visiting Consultant, and connected with healthcare institutions in Tacurong and Davao City. Dr. Aguilar became an attending orthopedic surgeon in most of the hospitals in Sultan Kudarat . In 2008, he started a clinic inside the Eye Center building of Sultan Kudarat Doctors Hospital. He saw mostly trauma, adult and pediatric orthopedic patients coming not only from Sultan Kudarat but also from neighboring provinces of South Cotabato, North Cotabato and Maguindanao.
In 2009, after being appointed as the Chief of the Clinical Service of St. Louis Hospital (the newly built, tertiary hospital in Tacurong City), he transferred his clinic at the Outpatient Department of St. Louis Hospital. In close collaboration with other medical specialties housed at St. Louis Hospital, Dr. Aguilar sees and manages orthopedic patients at St. Louis Hospital up to the present.
The growth of Bone Doc’s Bone, Joint and Spine Clinic was partly due to the preponderance of orthopedic trauma as well as adult orthopedic cases in the area. Dr. Aguilar also established professional networks of referrals with known orthopedic subspecialist in the South Central Mindanao region – Spine, Joints Reconstructions, Tumor and Hand Surgery. It had partnered with several healthcare institutions to provide a patient centered, compassionate, affordable and quality orthopedic care. To provide these brand of orthopedic care Dr. Aguilar sees the need for constantly updating his orthopedic knowledge and skills vis- a- vis , teaching and learning orthopedics at the same time. This he achieves with the help of Department of Orthopedics at Southern Philippines Medical Center (formerly Davao Medical Center), where he is a consultant and teaches General Orthopedics and Trauma to residents. He has also partnered with various institutions that train allied medical professionals (nursing, physical therapy )where he is constantly being asked to speak and teach about orthopedics.
Currently, Bone Doc’s Bone Joint and Spine Clinic is housed in the Medical Clinics of the Outpatient Department of St. Louis Hospital.
