Do that through our scholarly research; through the use of science to find the truth; through multi-disciplinary engagements that allow us to see beyond where we find ourselves now,” advised Atty.

While spine surgeries used to be very long, risky, and bloody affairs, this need not be the case today. According to spine surgeon Dr. Rafael Bundoc of the University of the Philippines General Hospital (UP PGH), minimally invasive spine surgeries are now on the rise. With these advanced techniques, patients of UP PGH can go back to their homes and jobs after a few hours of rest and avoid the costs that come with long hospital stays.
