Carol’s sister had ovarian cyst surgery at St. Luke’s Hospital in Manila in 2004. The total cost was about P70,000. If she had been a foreigner it would have cost more, but still affordable for most.

One peculiarity of Philippine hospitals is that the better hospital room you have, the more you may be charged for all other medical services.  If you’re in a ward, the surgeon, the anesthesiologists and others will likely charge you less for their services than if you’re in a private room.  It’s a form of progressive billing.

The OB/GYN/ surgeon was Thelma Marie Elio, St Lukes Medical Center, #614 South Tower, Quezon City, phone +63-2-723-0301 x 2614. The sister had not yet had a child so we asked Dr. Elio to do her best to save her patient’s reproductive ability.  Two years later Carol’s sister had a very beautiful daughter, so the surgery was a big sucess.
