Jovito Angeles, MD

Philosophy of Care

I am an upper extremity and reconstructive microvascular surgeon whose practice is grounded on collaborating with my patients, their family and allied health professionals in tailoring an evidence-based treatment plan that will lead to the best possible outcomes for my patients. My years of international and academic experience have provided me with the skills and valuable insights that allow me to expertly evaluate and educate the patients about their upper extremity and nerve conditions. I believe in empowering my patients by providing them with the most recent research data about their orthopaedic problem and then partnering with them to arrive at a treatment plan that will provide the highest chance of success and recovery. As an upper extremity surgeon, my skill set ranges from the latest minimally invasive techniques for carpal tunnel release, to complex joint replacements of the upper extremity, to microvascular reconstruction for brachial plexus and nerve injuries. I am dedicated to helping patients and their families overcome their upper extremity problems so they can live their lives to the fullest.
