CTMH welcomes Dr. Ramone Lacanilao to their family of specialists. Dr. Lacanilao joins the paediatric team at the Cayman Islands only private hospital, which offers regular, preventative and emergency care for children.
Dr. Lacanilao is a board certified paediatrician and has practiced in Missouri, New York, West Virginia, Texas, Canada and the Philippines. He has also practiced in Cayman before, and is happy to return to the Caribbean where he is able to offer a higher standard of care to patients. “The patients at CTMH really appreciate us (the doctors) and the level of care we give to each of them” explained Dr. Lacanilao. When he was in Cayman at CTMH before, Dr. Lacanilao was instrumental in the procurement of new equipment for the hospital, specifically the newborn section. He specializes in infant and neo-natal care but can also handle complex paediatric endocrinology cases too. Additionally, Dr. Lacanilao works closely with parents and their children if any behavioral problems arise to find the right specialist needed and the right solutions.
Dr. Lacanilao recommends that all parents diligently make sure their children are preventatively vaccinated and up to date on their immunizations. “Sometimes it’s very easy to forget or overlook when that type of preventative care is required. Patients need to follow up and check with their doctors about checkups and screenings and new vaccinations, for all ages.” He furthered.
He enjoys working with CTMH’s other paediatric specialists Dr. Belfonte and Dr. Lockhart. CTMH is the Cayman Islands only Private Hospital featuring exceptional personalized health care to meet all of your needs.
