Women’s Health – Family Planning Support Evaluation at Makati Medical Center

Four of our club members visited Dr. Sonia Bongala, chairperson of the Department of Obstetrics and Ginecology at Makaki Medical Center for a review of practices, procedures and medical equipment used for women health issues inclusive of family planning. Our club sought for better ligation methods than BTL (Bilateral Tubal Ligation) and asked Dr.  Bongala the popularity of hysteroscopic sterilization in the Philippines as Makati Medical Center has hysteroscopy equipments which consists of an endoscopic camera, light sources, a monitor and nozzles. Possibly due to high cost of such method or patent issues, we learned that it is not yet feasible in this country.  Dr. Bongala explained that the equipment was being used to treat menstrual problems or to remove polyps, etc. 20150114_113902 (Large) 20150114_115801 (Large) 20150114_112319 (Large) 20150114_112632 (Large)
