THE ASCLEPIAN VOICE
THE OFFICIAL PUBLICATION OF THE ORDER OF ASCLEPIUS : WEST VISAYAS STATE UNIVERSITY—COLLEGE OF MEDICINE

VOLUME 1 ISSUE NO. 18

S

ummer is not just about
beautiful beaches, pristine
paradises and endless
escapades. It’s also known
for the rite of passage known to
Filipino school-age boys:
circumcision.
Circumcision, from the Latin
‘circumcidere’, meaning ‘to cut
around’, is the surgical removal of the
skin covering the tip of the penis.
Locally known as ‘tuli’, this surgical
procedure has come a long way.
From its historic historical origins
during the time of Antiquities,
long gone were the times when
one has to endure the pain
of
being circumcised in the
absence of anesthesia, and the risk
of infection from unsterile
procedures.
As part of its summer activities,
the Order of Asclepius in partnership
with the Health Assistance Brought
Locally Once Needed (HABLON)
organized a surgical mission on May
13, 2015 at Brgy. Nabitasan, La Paz,
Iloilo City.
The said event is headed by Dr.
Gregorio Anastacio Rufon Jr.
(OA Batch 11). Resident members of
the Order of Asclepius together with
staff nurses from St. Therese Hospital,
took part in the one-day event.
With the barangay hall serving as
the operating room suite, a total of
94 children participated in the said
event with ages ranging from
6 to 15 years old. Aside from the
surgical services offered,
post-operative medications for
pain and antibiotics as well as
health education for home
care of
circumcision site were
provided.
The circumcision drive is in
consonance with the thrust of the
Order of Asclepius which is to
foster brotherhood in medicine
through service. With the increasing
cost, the said activity sought to
provide accessible and free surgical
services to our countrymen in the
community setting. #
