Overview

Overview

The renowned Bumrungrad Hospital is JCI-accredited and treats 1.1 million patients annually, including 520,000 international patients.

The hospital has over 80 clinical specialities and subspecialties. The expertise of the doctors and high quality of the hospital’s facilities is backed up by a range of specialist technologies. These include cutting edge devices like the Vagus Nerve Stimulation, known as a “pacemaker for the brain”, which is surgically implanted in the chest and connected to the left vagus nerve, preventing seizures by sending regular, mild pulses of electrical energy to the brain. Another minimally invasive procedure, SEEG, uses electrodes placed directly in the brain to identify where epileptic seizures start in order to monitor, resect, and hopefully improve seizures.

The hospital’s spinal surgery department is also a highlight, using techniques like endoscopic discectomy and keyhole TILF with 3D computerized navigation, allowing for less muscle damage and a quicker recovery after surgery.

Furthermore, the hospital can organize hotel booking, as well as both airport pickup and car rental assistance. Other services offered by the hospital include free WiFi, a pharmacy, laundry, dry cleaning, and interpreter services. In addition, Bumrungrad Hospital is aware that international travellers may have limited time, and always works with patients to ensure that a suitable timeline can be found.
