Medical Tourism

In recent years, 1.4 million international patients have received medical treatment in Thailand, and the number is increasing annually.

No matter where you go in Thailand, medical tourism offers a wide array of procedures. The country has earned a reputation for dependable and affordable treatments and services, including massage centers, spas and wellness clinics and retreats, as well as surgical procedures such as laser, cosmetic, and cardiovascular. Thailand’s high standards and healthcare expertise make it a world leader in medical tourism, while the options for a post-medical treatment holiday are the best in the world.

If you ask those patients who have received healthcare in Thailand, they will give you the same reasons why, summarized in these “Six Reasons to Make Thailand Your Medical Tourism Destination”.

1. Thailand features internationally accredited medical facilities

Hospitals and other medical facilities in Thailand pride themselves on their high standards, and many have subjected their premises and systems to the most rigorous inspections by applying for accreditation and certification, whereby a qualified standards organization - distinct from the healthcare organization under review - assesses the hospital or facility to determine if it meets a set of standards and requirements designed to improve the quality of patient care.

Thailand was the first country in Asia to achieve JCI accreditation in 2002, and 15 hospitals are now accredited.

2. Thailand’s medical professionals are highly qualified

The physicians, surgeons and nurses have been trained to the highest levels, while many specialists have been conducting research and gaining experience at the world’s best medical institutes with some even leading the field in which they specialise.

Many Thai doctors and surgeons practicing today have won awards for their work, and more than 500 doctors practicing in Thai hospitals are American Board Certified. These medical professionals are skilled at providing the highest quality medical treatment.

3. Cost saving

The cost of medical treatments in Thailand is significantly lower compared to identical treatments in the West and other developed parts of the world.

Some comparisons include: the US $130,000 cost of a heart bypass in the United States, which can be performed by skilled and qualified doctors at a Thai hospital for only US $11,000.

Even most cosmetic treatments are around 50% less expensive in Thailand than in the US, where breast enlargements costs around $3,500-4,000 as opposed to $2,600-$3,200 in Thailand.

4. No waiting lists

Thai hospitals have numerous operating theaters and enough qualified surgeons that there is little, if any, waiting for scheduling even the most complex and invasive procedures.

5. Thailand’s medical technology is state-of-the-art

All of Thailand’s leading hospitals feature state-of-the-art technology that helps them provide the highest degree of medical treatment and service, such as,Siemens Biograph 64 PET/CT, Image Guided Radiotherapy (IGRT), and Blood Marrow Stem Cell Transplant.

6. Thailand offers excellent service

Thais are proud that their national character has won them a well-deserved reputation for their compassion and warm hospitality, and that’s why the country is nicknamed “The Land of Smiles”. Patients become so at ease that they feel almost like a guest on holiday from the moment they arrive at the hospital.

In all aspects of medical tourism, Thailand’s professionalism and accumulated experience guarantee you are in good hands.
