    What hospital/doctor would be best equipped to diagnose a shoulder injury in Dumaguete? Any recommendations on an orthopaedic surgeon?

    Or should I just forget about Dumaguete and head to Cebu? What hospital/doctor would be best there?

    Orthopedic surgeon Dr Danilo Olegario at Silliman has been well recommended on this Forum - as has his wife for physio.

    I found that after I posted. I'll probably head to Silliman next week if I'm still having problems.

    I agree that it is best to rest it first - is it your drinking arm?

    If you need to go to Cebu then http://www.everythingcebu.com/lifestyle/public-services/hospitals/list-of-cebu-hospitals/

    I know that Chong Hua has a very good reputation.

    Also, I heard secondhand that someone took a parent to Cebu Doctors' Hospital for (I think) a kidney issue, was quoted doctor's fee (i.e excl room, anesthesiologist etc.) in Duma of P80,000, but spent only P57,000 for ALL fees plus their own hotel room for 3 days.

    Good luck for your recovery.

    No. And it only hurts when I raise my arm out to the side, easy to work around.:wink:

    Go to Cebu. I heard Olegario charges an arm and a leg and prescribes expensive therapy (courtesy of his wife) they dont need.

    Dr. Oligario is a good, but I was never quite impressed with Silliman enough to have surgery there. I (personally) would try to find someone at one of the larger, better equipped hospitals in Cebu or Manila if I needed surgery, and if that was an option.

    ACE in Claytown has an operating MRI and Orthopedic Surgeon. Not certain on the MRI, forgot to ask.

    Not a recommendation, just letting you know that they are equipped.
