Dr. Mich dela Cruz is very professional and accommodating. We tried several clinics and hers is the best based on our experience.
Highly recommended! The doctor is very nice(DRA. CHUA) and ms. angel(receptionist) is very accommodating and friendly! The clinic itself is very cozy and clean. Price is very competitive and fair! Thanks for making me feel comfortable!
Very much appreciated his kindness 💛💙☺️🤗 most trustworthy doctor I've ever seen. She is really good. Careful to his patient. He always asks you if it's okay or not. The last time I had prenatal check ups and at 8 months (32weeks) we didn't know either. With that please. I was very impressed. Supposedly, the baby is coming out that time because I'm 4cm. But he really stopped it from coming out. He has already provided options. But not yet. Until the next day he was born normal and safe. Although I told her I had a C-section, she insisted on normal delivery. delivery Very attentive. Although we both knew he was coming to the meeting and he was really sleepy. But he didn't leave me at Adventist Medical 💛💜💙
Cheaper ultrasound than St. Luke's, and fast results too. Note that though they open at 9:00 AM, the doctor arrives around 10:30 AM.

Microdochectomy is a surgical procedure to remove a mammary or a lactiferous duct. The lactiferous duct is each of the milk-carrying ducts of the mammary gland that opens on the nipple, it is responsible for delivering milk to the surface of the skin. This procedure is performed for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes and recommended for patients who experience nipple discharge.
Microdochectomy can be carried out either under local or general anesthesia. During the procedure, your doctor makes an incision following the circular line of the areola (circumareolar cut) and removes the affected duct. Then, the incision is closed with dissolvable stitches/sutures and the removed duct is sent for histologic examination.
The procedure is normally performed as an outpatient, meaning you can leave the hospital on the same day. In some cases, you may need to stay overnight in the hospital. However, you need to plan to stay in Philippines for around 5 to 7 days for follow-up checkups.
You should be able to return to light activities one week after the procedure, but avoid any strenuous activities such as exercises for a few more weeks.
During your recovery period, you will need to wear a well-fitting bra to support the breast and the wound. You can shower after 24 hours, but do not take a bath for at least seven days. Your doctor will give you instructions that include care for the wound, diet, and exercises.
Microdochectomy is a very safe procedure, but it carries some side effects and risks. The risks include loss of nipple sensation, infection, bleeding, and recurrence of the symptoms. These risks are rare and happen approximately to 2 in every 100 women who have had the procedure.
This is the safest and most effective procedure for nipple discharge. It is advisable to discuss your options with your doctor if you do not want to undergo microdochectomy.
Nipple discharge can cause discomfort and unpleasant symptoms, it can also be a symptom of some forms of breast cancer, such as intraductal carcinoma and Paget’s disease. After the procedure, you will no longer experience these symptoms and your risk of breast cancer may be significantly reduced.
