ROJoson’s Patients Advised Against Unnecessary Operations and Procedures – A Registry – A Resumption

In December 22, 2013, I blogged to establish a registry of patients whom I have advised against an operation and procedure which I think was not necessary.

See below.

October 21, 2017, I will resume this project.

As I have said, this is one of the legacies that I will leave behind for my patients – saving them from unnecessary operations and procedures.

Actually, I have saved hundreds, if not thousands, of patients from unnecessary operations and procedures since I started my surgical practice in 1982.

Excluding unnecessary breast operations, the following medical conditions are usually those that I have saved from unnecessary operations and procedures.

  • Patients with normal thyroid and benign thyroid disorders, such as colloid goiter and thyroiditis
  • Patients with ganglion cysts which I usually just aspirate
  • Patients with gallbladder polyps which I just recommend watchful waiting
  • Patients with asymptomatic gallstones which I just recommend watchful waiting
  • Patients with parotitis and submandibular gland inflammation
  • Patients with nonspecific reactive cervical lymphadenopathy
  • Patients with small hemorrhoids
  • Others which I will try to recall.

ROJoson’s Patients Advised Against Unnecessary Operations and Procedures – A Registry

Today, December 22, 2013, I will start making a registry of patients whom I have advised against unnecessary operations and procedures.  This will be retroactive, meaning, I will try to retrive data and information as far back as 1982 when I started my private practice on the patients who consulted me for second or third opinions and whom I have advised against an operation and procedure which I think was not necessary.

This is one of the legacies that I will leave behind for my patients – saving them from unnecessary operations and procedures.

A 2004 Write-up on ROJoson’s Acccomplishment.

“Since 2001, Dr. Joson has made his Department of Surgery and surgical staff relevant and proactive to the community health problems.  They have launched the following public health education and advocacies which fall under the theme of unnecessary procedures and health practices.”

Public Health Education / Advocacy

Beware of santol seed swallowing [See Appendix 8]It can cause intestinal perforations! It can cause unnecessary and premature death!

2001

NO to unnecessary (routine) circumcision  

2002

NO to unnecessary (routine) preoperative work-ups  

2002

NO to unnecessary mammography  

2002

NO to unnecessary breast mass operations  

2003

Beware of devastating aftermath of muriatic acid ingestion [See Appendix 13]

The beneficiaries of these public health education and advocacy programs are the public, the health care professionals and providers and the Filipino people.
