Asian Hospital and Medical Center (AHMC) gathered a distinguished line up of speakers for the 6th Clinical Innovation Summit that took place last May 5, 2023 at Crimson Hotel. With the theme “Innovations in Hospital Medicine: Global Expertise, Filipino Heart,” the speaker discussed the latest innovations in cardiology, oncology, neuroscience, gastroenterology, and orthopedics.
The event kicked off with Dr. Jose Acuin, AHMC Chief Medical Officer, giving the opening remarks. He welcomed AHMC doctors and guests from other medical institutions who gathered at Crimson Hotel amidst an upsurge in the number of Covid-19 cases.
“I am truly grateful that you are all here for this face-to-face conference because this is the right thing to do. We are truly blessed to have people who innovate. Over the past three years, we have been adapt to so many things that were not there before and now is the time to showcase what we have done,” Dr. Acuin said.
For his part, Dr. Beaver Tamesis, AHMC President and CEO, said medical innovations are all part and parcel of the hospital’s efforts to give patients the care that they truly deserve.
“Innovation is not just about coming up with new services. It is about how we deliver our promise to the people that we serve. What we do must be aligned towards bringing the best service to our patients because that is what they deserve. That should be our guiding principle—what’s the best interest for our patients,” Dr. Tamesis said.
The first part of the summit looked into innovations in neurology. Dr. Corina Maria Socorro A. Macalintal talked about “Advances in Headache Management” while Dr. Guillermo T. Liabres talked about “Neurosurgery: Re-establishing Cerebral Circulation.”
The morning session ended with talks on cardiology. These talks were given by Dr. Fabio Enrique B. Posas who tackled “Structural Heart Disease Interventions” and Dr. Rod T. Castro who talked about “Cardiac Intensive Care.”
Breast cancer was the first topic after lunch. Dr. Joseph Thomas A. Noriega talked about “Advances in Breast Cancer Surgery” while the topic of “Breast Reconstruction after Mastectomy” was tackled by Dr. Aldine Astrid A. Basa.
After the session on breast cancer, two doctors discussed “Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery: How I do it.” They were Dr. Larry V. Acuña and Dr. Samuel Arsenio M. Grozman. “Metastatic Bone Treatments” was the last topic of the day and this was discussed by Dr. Johanna Patricia A. Canal and Dr. Ma. Pamela D. Patdu.
“It has been a very fruitful day and I would like to thank all the doctors for their presentations. All of these presentations show that we are able to cater to the needs of our patients. Let’s continue to work harder and innovate some more,” Dr. Acuin said in his closing remarks.
