Kinaadman Multidimensional Dermatological Approach Transcending Eras:18th Postgraduate Course of the JRRMMC Department of Dermatology

                 The Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center Department of Dermatology, in cooperation with the Skin Research Foundation of the Philippines, Inc. held its 18th Postgraduate Course entitled Kinaadman Multidimensional Dermatological Approach Transcending Eras last July 9-10, 2021 via digital platform. The course aims to impart current advancements in the diagnosis and management of dermatologic diseases, as well as the modern approach to aesthetic treatment to ensure quality patient care. It is imperative, especially in the dynamic practice of dermatology, to continuously equip ourselves with innovative and up-to-date methods to provide care to our patients.

                  The  first day of the virtual postgraduate course, hosted by Dr. Kara Melissa Torres-Culala, was opened by our esteemed Dr. Ma. Flordeliz Abad-Casintahan, and the varied keynote lectures were moderated by Dr. Melanie Joy Doria-Ruiz.  In the morning, Dr. Stanley A. Chua shared his expertise on the complementary approach to pruritus and provided insight on a more integrative approach to the management of difficult cases of persistent pruritus. He began with a comprehensive breakdown of the different causes of pruritus, such as breakdown of structural barriers, poor or over-nutrition, and abnormal histamine release, and later on provided complementary methods to address each of these etiologies. Dr. Hester Gail Lim-Bueser provided a discussion on the significant clinical and histologic characteristics of the skin from from infancy to senescence. She discussed how these in turn cause particular functional changes in the skin, and provided evidence-based means to approach the otherwise basic principle of cleansing, moisturizing and ensuring protection.  Dr. Allen  Aguinaldo-Cabrera gave an interactive presentation on the management of acne scars, showing different treatment modalities such as subcision, punch techniques, soft tissue filler, platelet rich plasma, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, microneedling, ablative and non-ablative laser treatments performed on actual clinical cases.

               In the afternoon, Dr. Zharlah Gulmatico-Flores gave a thorough discussion of the biochemical changes in the skin brought about by menopause. She shed light on the visible and palpable effects of these molecular changes in the status of the skin and how these can influence wound healing, hair cycles, and aging and the status of other conditions in the woman such dermatitis and acne. Dr. Irene Gaile Robredo-Vitas gave an interesting discussion on cosmetic and reconstructive vaginal rejuvenation. She gave a very interactive presentation showing the step-by-step process of performing each of the available non-surgical and minimally invasive methods on patients with intimate pigmentation and intimate flaccidity concerns.

                  The second day of the virtual postgraduate course was  hosted by Dr. Ron Michael P. Dagala and moderated by Dr. Elaine Marie Gutierrez-Villaroman. Dr. Ma. Cricelda M. Rescober-Valencia commenced with a Filipino Skin Lecture Series, unmasking three unusual dermatologic masqueraders, including cutaneous metastasis presenting as solitary nodule on the scalp, mycetoma presenting as nodules and tumors on the left foot, and syphilis presenting as an annular plaque on the face. Dr. Marie Socouer L. Medina-Oblepias lectured on the pathophysiology of post inflammatory erythema, and the different treatment options which comprise lasers, intense pulse light, fractional microneedling radiofrequency, tranexamic acid, vitamin c, alpha adrenoreceptor agonist, and other topical agents like azelaic acid, niacinamide and silicone gel.

                  Dr. Ma. Cristina A. Puyat discussed the different endogenous and exogenous factors contributing to periorbital hyperpigmentation. She showcased how she approaches the ever-changing preferences of patients when it comes to periorbital rejuvenation from topical treatment to minimally invasive procedures.  Dr. Johannes F. Dayrit shared his extensive knowledge and hands-on experience with laser-assisted drug delivery and its varied uses in various skin conditions such as actinic keratosis, melasma, basal cell carcinoma, vitiligo and alopecia areata. Dr. Aivee Aguilar-Teo showcased a multitude of medical and aesthetic breakthroughs for non-invasive body contouring including laser lipolysis, monopolar radiofrequency, cryolipolysis, high intensity focused electromagnetic technology plus synchronized targeted radiofrequency and coolwaves microwave technology. The virtual postgraduate course was concluded with a message of gratitude and appreciation to all delegates, organizing committee, and sponsors from our esteemed Dr. Daisy King-Ismael.

                  The JRRMMC Dermatology family is deeply grateful to all the speakers and delegates for taking part in making this first ever virtual course a success. It is our hope that with the Kinaadman imparted by our speakers in this postgraduate course, delegates will be more equipped to provide the best care to each of their patients, especially in these ever-changing times. Daghang salamat sa tanan!

DONATION DRIVE 2021

"..Consecrated to God in the service of the sick-poor, the infirm in mind and body, homeless and abandoned, to those in prisons, to the deaf.."
This was the commitment to the Lord made by the Brothers of Mercy of Saint John of God in Hospicio de San Juan de Dios in Bulacan many, many years ago. Until today, despite many challenges, they continue to hold onto this commitment by providing a caring home to countless mentally-challenged individuals.
The Skin Research Foundation of the Philippines, Inc. together with the Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center Department of Dermatology held a donation drive today, March 27, 2021, for our mentally-challenged brothers and sisters under the care of the Brothers of Mercy of Saint John of God in Hospicio de San Juan de Dios, Bocaue, Bulacan and Bustos, Bulacan.
Chief Infirmarian Bro. Bernardo Engay, along with Bro. Raymond Marquez, welcomingly took us for a quick tour of the infirmary and shared interesting stories about the joys and challenges of taking care of mentally-challenged patients. Their selfless work and dedication to their mission truly inspired us to be better men and women of service.
We ended the short tour with prayers for the health and safety of our families and patients.
We are very grateful to have been able to put a smile on the faces of the patients of Hospicio de San Juan de Dios. May the coming days allow us to be of service to even more people who are in need.
 
 

DONATION DRIVE 2021

MALIGAYANG PASKO PO MULA SA PAMILYA NG JRRMMC DEPARTMENT OF DERMATOLOGY!


Medical Mission November 2018

alt

"Bloom where you are planted."

The Skin Research Foundation of the Philippines, Inc., in cooperation with the Philippine Dermatologic Society and Jose R. Reyes Memorial Medical Center Department of Dermatology, marked the start of the yuletide season of giving by visiting the Haven for Women in Alabang, Muntinlupa last November 10, 2018 via the gift of charity.

The Haven of Women provides temporary shelter and protective custody to women 18-59 years old who are victims of various forms of abuse.

With the leadership of our beloved Chairman, Dr. Ma. Flordeliz Abad-Casintahan, we saw and treated 180 patients with various skin diseases. We also performed various dermatologic surgical procedures totaling to 26 operations such as electrocautery of common warts.

R.S. Grey once said: "She believed she can, so she did." The Haven for Women is an establishment that seeks to empower women whose spirits have been damaged by various forms of abuse such as domestic violence. Women are the flowers of society - where flowers bloom, so does hope. We hoped that by our simple act of generosity, we hope that the flowers who reside in the Haven will push through the dirt and once again bathe in sunlight.

Star Wars Block Screening

Despite the heavy rains and the grueling December Manila traffic, people came in droves for the advanced block screening (December 16, 2015) of Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens for the benefit of our leprosy patients. Everyone enjoyed the snacks and prizes from our generous sponsors. The Force is really alive as they enjoyed the movie!
