Our Mission and Vision
All too often, fingers, toes, and limbs are unnecessarily lost due to inadequate wound care. This is caused mainly by the unavailability of wound care services that are appropriate, advanced, and affordable. The traditional approach to wound care of prescribing antibiotics and advising patients to clean their wounds with either saline solution, Daikin’s or Thirds solution, or povidone iodine is outdated and ineffectual. More often than not, especially in diabetics, this leads to worsening of their wounds, and unfortunately, the worst cases lead to amputation. More advanced cleansing and wound dressing products are available now in the market that are able to efficiently disinfect wounds and promote healing. However, for all of their effectiveness, they are still out of reach of the poorer segment of wound patients due to their high cost.
Hilom Wound Care Clinic was founded by Dr Charles Cabuquit, an Orthopedic Surgeon, with the mission of providing appropriate, advanced, and affordable wound care to ALL patients who need it. In partnership with B Braun, Hilom utilizes Prontosan Irrigating Solution and Gel to effectively cleanse, disinfect, and heal infected wounds. Askina Dressil foam dressing promotes the ideal wound environment and stimulates proper wound bed development. The secret weapon of Hilom, which allows us to provide the most advanced wound care is our ultrasound debridement machine, the Sonoca 185. Hilom is the FIRST and ONLY wound care clinic in Metro Manila that provides in-clinic, bedside, ultrasonic-assisted wound DEBRIDEMENT. Regular wound debridement done in 2-3 day intervals is the main reason we are able to quickly bring down and control infection in wounds and jump start the recovery of non-healing wounds, especially diabetic foot ulcers. It is in this way that we are able achieve wound healing in seemingly hopeless wounds, wounds that have been condemned to limb amputation. We have saved quite a number of toes, feet, and legs, and for this, our patients are truly thankful.
Consistent with Hilom’s mission to provide appropriate, advanced, and affordable wound care to ALL, we do not charge patients for our services. All qualified members of PhilHealth can claim their wound care benefits at Hilom. We educate our patients regarding their PhilHealth benefits and encourage them to become members in good standing in order to claim their benefits. In this way, we can reach even the poorest patients and help them heal their wounds and avoid amputation. To date, Hilom has served almost a hundred patients, and ALL of them utilized their PhilHealth benefits for their wound care.
As we continue to deliver this unique service to our patients, our vision is that we provide the blueprint that eventually becomes the gold standard of practice in advanced wound care. Let our motto be- “Lahat ng sugat, pwedeng mag-Hilom”.
Hilom Wound Care Clinic is located on the 2nd floor of Health Cube Medical Clinics, a DOH-certified, PhilHealth-accredited, state-of-the-art, multi-specialty clinic and ambulatory surgery center. Our address is 241 Shaw Blvd, Bagong Silang, Mandaluyong
Meet Our Patients
Probably the worst thing a patient can be told is that their limb has to be amputated because of a chronic, infected, non-healing wound. It can be devastating to hear this, crushing not only one’s will, but one’s spirit as well. We won't advise anyone outright amputation at Hilom Wound Care Clinic, as we strive to save every patient’s limb or appendage. All wounds have the potential to heal, as long as the appropriate materials and methods are used. We have stuck with our patients for as long as 6 months in order to achieve the best outcome for their wounds, whether it may be outright wound healing or wound bed preparation for skin grafting. Admittedly, not all of our patients have positive outcomes, but the important thing is that we gave them all a fighting chance.
