His Medical Career
During his career, Dr. Willie innovated on the refinements of the surgical treatment of Hirschsprung’s Disease, a congenital anomaly that renders babies unable to evacuate their stools leading to intestinal obstruction, sepsis, and possible death. The technique he espouses provided relief and lives saved, without a colostomy and which he does in one operation even in the neonatal or early infancy period. The technic that he introduced is a testimony to his pioneering spirit.
Bringing the true meaning of health coaching to the Philippines is another pioneering endeavor.
The Passion To Teach
Teaching is one of Dr. Willie’s passions which he developed as a professor at the same institution where he graduated. For him, education is an important foundation for changing one’s mindset. Thus, while in Las Vegas, NV, Dr. Willie came across the program offered by the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute, where the basic medium of education appealed to him. He then enrolled in the program, thereby, receiving his certificate to conduct the workshops.
Dr. Willie engages participants during his workshops through his dynamic speaking style as well as through simple very practical how-to information.
Dr. Willie’s Awards
Because of Dr. Willie’s passion, compassion and pioneering spirit he received several awards in his career. To name a few, he received the TOYM (Ten Outstanding Young Men) Award in Medicine from the Philippine Jaycees. He also received the International Guest Scholarship Award from the American College of Surgeons. From the Metro Manila Chapter of the Philippine College of Surgeons, he was a recipient of Legend of the Knife Award and Most Outstanding Professor from the University of Santo Tomas Faculty Union.
Dr. Willie’s interest in the field of Complementary & Alternative Medicine led him also to complete a course in Energy Medicine under Donna Eden.
