Dr. Jesse Joson

Orthopaedic injuries are common in the island province of Catanduanes owing to a lot of motor vehicular accidents, fall from trees, and elderly women sustaining fractures from a simple fall.

Fortunately, the province is blessed to have its first Orthopaedic Surgeon certified by the Philippine Board of Orthopaedics in the person of Dr. Jesse Jerus Alem Gabrieli Tabirara Joson.

Dr. Joson is a true son of Catanduanes with both parents hailing from Virac. His father is Atty. Pio Jose S. Joson from Bigaa and Mrs. Estrellita Tabirara Joson from Sta. Cruz. He is a graduate of San Beda University College of Medicine and had his internship at the UP-PGH. He completed his residency training at East Avenue Medical Center where he served as Chief Resident during his last year.

\He has had several trainings both locally and abroad in General Orthopaedics and Spine Surgery. In 2017, he was the first Filipino to be selected as an Asia Pacific Spine Society-Depuy Synthes Traveling Fellow together with Spine Surgeons from Germany, India and Pakistan.

Even with his various achievements, Dr. Joson still decided to practice in Catanduanes to serve his fellow Catandunganons who are needing Orthopaedic care. Dr. Joson is still planning to do further training in Spine Surgery abroad in order to serve the whole Bicol Region which lacks an Orthopaedic Spine Surgeon.

Currently, He holds clinic at the Holy Family Clinic in Bigaa together with his Obstetrics-Gynecologist wife Dr. Irish May Leabres-Joson. They are both affiliated with Catanduanes Doctors Hospital Inc and Immaculate Heart of Mary Hospital Inc.

They are planning to enter government service to serve the indigent patients in the islanf. Indeed, Catanduanes needs more Specialist Doctors to serve this island so that the local health care system would be improved.
