Medical tourism

With the increasing costs of medical care in the developed world, more travelers are realizing the affordable cost of high quality medical services in Thailand. Including airfare and recovery time –which may even be spent relaxing on the beach- nearly all medical procedures are far less expensive in Thailand than in the west.

Western trained doctors and state of the art technology are found in many of Bangkok’s internationally certified hospitals and waiting times for procedures are much shorter than in many western hospitals.

Popular products and services for medical tourism include:

Prescription Pharmaceuticals: While many pharmacies in Thailand do not require prescriptions for drugs sold over the counter, even those requiring a doctor’s prescription are generally much cheaper in Thailand than in fully developed countries.

Dental Care: Many Thai dentists have either studied or practiced abroad and are able to perform dental surgery for a fraction of the cost in the west. Routine dental procedures, including fillings, cleanings and teeth whitening, are far less expensive and are easy to arrange around any holiday to Thailand.

Cosmetic Surgery: Thailand is one of the leaders in the world for many cosmetic surgical procedures, including LASIK eye surgery, botox and collagen injections, face lifts, hair removal, and sexual re-orientation surgery.

Medical Procedures: Numerous hospitals with ISO 9001 accreditation provide outstanding medical treatment and reasonable prices for the most invasive of surgeries. Multi-lingual staff, doctors trained in the United States and European countries, and state-of-art facilities and technology are a few of the reasons to come to Thailand for back, knee, or even heart surgery. The fact that many of Bangkok’s hospitals exude Thai hospitality and are designed like five star hotels should make your recovery from a successful surgery a pleasant one.
