It is up to the family on how you will tell about his health condition. It is best that you see his doctor for advice regarding diet and other healthcare needs at home. It depends on his condition and if he has difficulty swallowing etc.

I am writing from abroad , I have someone working for me from philippine who has a tumor in the head a ” Meningioma”. She has done a CT Scan and MRI , she wishes to go and do the operation in Philippine in order to be with her family. Since I like to assist her, I really appreaciate if you let me know if this operation can be done in your hospital and approximatively how much would be the cost?
I really appreciate if you reply to me as soon as possible knowing that the sooner the operation is done , it is better.

Thanks a lot
Carole H.

Cost estimates depend on a number of factors present in individual patients e.g. other medical problems, location and size of meningioma, other potential complications that may arise with both the meningioma and treatment options etc…
If they want to do it in PGH on a Charity basis, please have them consult at the PGH Outpatient Dept, Neurosurgery Clinic (Please see clinic schedules on “outpatient services” page).
They will then be advised there of possible costs of operation/ other treatment options.
(Please see FAQs page under services. See “Paano magpakonsulta…?”)

Hi, I am very greatfull and thankful with the treatments and services that all the doctors and nurses are giving to my brother at the ER and on at the Trauma ward as a charity patient. My only frustration is because of the Goverment corruptions and corruptions from red tape the hospital not getting the budgets it deserves so that full services can be given to the very poor. Broken down CT Scan for one week is not acceptable and patients have to get out of the hospital to avail CT Scan. Head Trauma needs diagnostic results as soon as possible cannot wait one week or else by then patient’s situation deteriorates so much that damages cannot be repaired.
