in Medicine by
  • Bone MD is a board certified orthopedic surgeon practicing in Southern Mindanao, Philippines. 
  • I finished my MD at the UP College of Medicine in 2000 and passed the Philippines’ physician licensure exam that same year. I practiced general medicine for a year then went on to pursue orthopedic training at UP-PGH until 2006 and went on to pass the Philippine Board of Orthopedics diplomate exam in that same year. 
  • I am now orthopedic consultant to several hospitals here in the South Mindanao area and help train residents in one training institution. My practice is mostly (but not limited to) orthopedic trauma and general medicine, as these are the predominant health care problem in my area. 
  • My inclination is into academics and clinical orthopedics but I dabble in so many other non medical endeavors (like blogging, computers, outdoors, sports) to enjoy what’s left of my “free” time. 
  • Hopefully, I’ll get into a fellowship training abroad, joints and upper extremity perhaps and balance professional practice with my (future) family and my passions in life.
