This enables us to ensure utmost safety and success in clinical outcomes. With over 50 different institutes, departments, centers, and services in our hospitals in Quezon City and Global City, SLMC offers a wide array of options and specialists when it comes to surgery.

A leader in medical innovation

SLMC is internationally recognized for its work as a premier healthcare institution in the Philippines. The Joint Commission International (JCI), a US-based organization known as the world’s most prestigious accrediting body for healthcare organizations, has accredited SLMC’s Institute of Surgery as world-class.

Minimally-invasive Surgery

Minimally-invasive surgery involves using a variety of techniques to perform a surgical procedure while reducing trauma to the patient’s body. Unlike in traditional open surgery, minimally invasive surgeries provide less postoperative pain, shorter hospital stays, faster recovery, and fewer complications to the patient.

Laparoscopic surgeries are among the most common minimally-invasive procedures that we do. With its use of a slender telescope or laparoscope and instruments inserted through small incisions, the surgeon is able to do complicated operations which otherwise would require large open wounds.

Minimally-invasive laparoscopic surgeries can be done for a variety of cases, such as gallbladder, intestinal, liver, transoral, and vascular surgeries.

State-of-the-art Robotics Surgery

In 2010, SLMC installed the da Vinci Si, an advanced robotic surgical system. Since then, SLMC’s robotic surgery has successfully conducted over 1,000 procedures across several disciplines, such as gynecologic, urologic, and otolaryngologic cases.

Robotic surgery, a minimally-invasive surgery platform, makes use of computerized robotic arms controlled by a trained surgeon to do precision surgery through small incisions.

Robotic technology has become the state-of-the-art in minimally-invasive surgery.
In our 11-year experience, our outcomes and success rates for these procedures are excellent.


A wide range of surgical procedures tailored to your needs

SLMC’s 16 operating room theaters are fully equipped to serve you. Aside from robotic surgery, other procedures we offer are:

1. Endoscopic Mucosal Resection (EMR) and Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection (EMD) that allow the endoscopic removal of large and deep intestinal polyps or lesions instead of removing these through open surgery

2. Transcatheter Aortic Valve Replacement (TAVR) to treat aortic stenosis without the need for open heart surgery

3 . Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC) to treat peritoneal carcinomatosis, where cancer has spread and affected the peritoneum or the tissue that surrounds our abdominal organs and is usually considered as untreatable

4. Cryoballoon Ablation for patients with atrial fibrillation, thus allowing them to recover in as fast as two weeks.

5. Stereotactic Radiosurgery for patients with tumors that are difficult to remove through traditional surgical procedures.
