IMVC Manila is the first Philippine branch of Isshiki Memorial Medical Center in Kyoto, Japan. The institution is composed of Ear, Nose, Throat – Head and Neck Surgeons who specialize in “phonosurgery”, a procedure generally uncommon in large-scale hospitals. The doctors in IMVC Manila performing “phonosurgery” were personally trained in Isshiki Memorial Medical Center in Kyoto, Japan. The clinic is located in Centuria Medical Makati, the first “medical mall” in the Philippines.
Patients who will undergo “phonosurgery” in our clinic and who will be advised to stay overnight will be accommodated in guest suites provided by Centuria Medical Makati. This arrangement extends to foreign patients who traveled from overseas to stay for a few more nights allowing them to have a time-efficient surgical treatment in the comforts provided by the medical mall.
Due to the increasing number of and awareness on voice disorders, particularly in Spasmodic Dysphonia, inquiries in and outside of Japan sprang up. “Laryngeal framework surgery" or "Isshiki Thyroplasty Type II" is a well-known surgical treatment done in Japan which effectively improves this debilitating voice disorder. Our Japanese and Filipino doctors are trained by the renowned Dr. Nobuhiko Isshiki himself. Fortunately, they would like to extend their expertise in the Philippines to accommodate more people living outside of Japan. And now, our facility is open to foreign patients as well. Our system has been prepared to accommodate patients from overseas for admission and treatment.
Dr. Nobuhiko Isshiki is a pioneer and has been the leading physician as well as researcher in this specialized area. He has developed revolutionary vocal fold surgical procedures including laryngeal framework surgery. Vocal pathologies vary widely in symptoms and causes. Naturally, they are best examined and treated by a collaborative team that includes experts in vocalism and voice training, in much the same way as musical instruments sometimes need not only be repaired but also be played using proper technique to produce good music.
We respect and take time in determining an individual patient's pathology to provide proper treatment and training. We cover a range of vocal problems, including spasmodic dysphonia, hoarseness in vocal cord paralysis, and voice change for Gender Identity Disorder (GID).
