I've done multiple medical check-ups with MMC as well as when my dad was confined for a few weeks there. Place was well kept clean, signs and staff are friendly and answers to questions well. Their services are prompt and the doctors and staff are very professional.

How I wish every Filipino can experience the medical care and assistance at Thé Medical City.❤️ March 4, 2020, I went to the Ambulatory Service Center- as usual long line but patients are comfortably seated and patiently waiting. I have been on food and water fasting for my blood extraction. Not to over fast I approached the lady at the counter 4, to let her know of my situation. She was so quick in attending to my concern and never ask for anything, not even my ID or HMO. She accompanied me at the blood extraction area and everything I need was well taken cared of because of her. Thank you very much Ms. Maria Concepcion Calayan Golla for your kind assistance and compassion. Keep up the excellent work. May your tribe increase. All the best!❤️

Anal fistulas are caused by an infection of the anal glands - a small tunnel/tract forms between the end of the bowel and the skin next to the anus. Bacteria can cause a collection of abscesses to form when the pus from these drains away, a small channel is left behind.
Anal Fistula Surgery is often performed under general anesthetic and can take up to 30 mins. Depending on where the fistula is, the surgeon will determine how to approach the surgery - surgery may be performed over a few separate operations to reduce the risk of infection when passing bowel movements.
There are several different procedures to treat an anal fistula and the surgery will be performed by a colon or rectal surgeon. The goal of the surgery is to heal the fistula while avoiding damage to the sphincter muscles, which could result in loss of bowel control. Your surgeon will discuss the best option suitable for you. It usually depends on where the fistula is and whether it is a single channel or branches off in different directions. To help determine the best treatment for you, you may need to have an initial examination of the area. Anal fistula surgery is performed under local or general anesthetic.
After the surgery, you should be able to go home on the same day or you will need to stay in the hospital for one night. However, you may need to stay in Philippines for 10 to 14 days, because you will need to allow some time for the initial recovery and to attend follow-up checkups.
The recovery period may vary from patient to patient. Although superficial anal fistula can heal faster, it still will take several months for a full recovery. Within one or two hours after the surgery, your surgeon will encourage you to get up and walk around. However, you will need to rest for the first 10 days and walk as little as possible to help the wound to heal. Expect to pass feces within one to three days, which may feel uncomfortable at first and a small amount of bleeding is possible. You can take a painkiller around 20 minutes before going to the toilet to help with the uncomfortable feeling. The wounds should heal within six weeks. You may get back to work after 2 weeks when you feel comfortable enough.
Your surgeon will likely give you advice and post-operative instructions. You will need to make sure that you follow the instructions strictly for a quicker recovery. You must keep the wound clean and dry so it can heal well. If your wound is bleeding, you can use a dressing or gauze pad over the wound. It might be helpful for you to use a sanitary pad to protect your clothes. To help ease the pain and keep your wound clean, you will be advised to have warm baths each day. However, do not add anything to the bathwater to avoid irritating the wound. Your surgeon may prescribe laxative medicine to help keep your stool soft so that it is less painful for you to go to the toilet.
The success rate of anal fistula surgery is extremely high. However, with any type of treatment and surgery, it carries a number of possible risks. Be sure you ask for more information regarding the risk and complication that may happen. Some of the risks for anal fistula surgery are:

An anal fistula cannot be treated without surgery because only very few anal fistulas heal by themselves. Without surgery, the symptoms may get worse. The only non-surgical option to treat anal fistula is fibrin glue, the surgeon injects special glue into the fistula. The glue helps seal the fistula and encourages it to heal.
