A quote includes a treatment plan and price estimate.
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.

Gastric bypass surgery is performed to help patients to lose weight by reducing the size of the stomach. The surgery is performed to help patients with weight-loss after non-surgical methods such as change of diet and regular exercise, have failed to produce results.
Flying after surgery can increase the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and patients will need to be cleared by the surgeon before flying.
Gastric sleeve surgery, which may also be referred to as sleeve gastrectomy, is a type of weight-loss surgery in which a large part of the stomach is removed. As a result, the remaining stomach is only around 25% of the size, meaning patients must eat smaller portions, and must modify their diet.
After gastric sleeve surgery, the patient will need to be cleared by the surgeon before flying.
Colectomy is a surgical procedure to remove all or part of the colon (also called the large intestine). It is performed in order to treat or prevent certain diseases and conditions such as uncontrollable bleeding in the colon, a bowel obstruction, colon cancer, ulcerative colitis, Crohn's disease, and diverticulitis.
A computerized tomography (CT) scan, which may also be referred to as a CAT scan, is scan which uses a series of X-rays to create detailed images of the body. The scan is performed to create images of the inside of the body, including bones, internal organs, and blood vessels.
Patients will need to attend a follow up consultation once the results are processed.
Myringoplasty, also referred to as tympanoplasty, is a surgical procedure to repair a perforated eardrum (the tympanic membrane) usually caused by infection or trauma.
The surgeon should ensure that eardrum has healed before the patient can fly, as changes in air pressure will affect the eardrum.
A cholecystectomy is a surgical procedure that is performed to remove the gallbladder. The gallbladder is an organ located below the liver, which serves the function of collecting and storing bile, which is the fluid produced by the liver, before breaking it down and releasing it into the small intestine.
Some patients will have dissolvable stitches, whereas others return after 7 days to have them removed. Patients who have open surgery will need a longer recovery time.
A colonoscopy is an examination of the large intestine, the colon and rectum, using a small camera.
Patients should arrive at least 2 days before the colonoscopy, as the bowel needs to be cleared the day before the procedure. Patients who have interventional treatment during the colonoscopy, e.g. removal of a polyp, may need slightly longer to recover.
Adrenalectomy is a surgical procedure performed to remove one or both of the adrenal glands. The adrenal glands are located above each kidney and are part of the endocrine system, responsible for releasing hormones into the body, in order to regulate the immune system, metabolism, and blood sugar levels.
An appendectomy is a surgical procedure performed to remove the appendix. The appendix is located where the small and large intestine meet and its function is not known. The appendix is usually removed as an emergency procedure when the patient has appendicitis, which is the inflammation of the appendix.
This procedure treats a Bartholin's cyst through incision and drainage. A Bartholin's cyst is a small fluid filled sac just inside the vagina. The cyst forms on the Bartholin's gland which is a gland that produces fluid that lubriates the vagina, when the glands become blocked. The cyst ranges in size and generally varies between the size of a pea, to the size of marble. If the Bartholin's cyst becomes infected, it is usually referred to as a Bartholin's abscess and generally requires drainage.
It is usually safe to fly afterwards, but depending on the type of procedure, there may be a follow up visit required - e.g. to remove a drainage catheter.
Epilepsy treatment aims to treat and manage epilepsy, a neurological disorder that can cause seizures that can lead to loss of consciousness or strange behavior. Epilepsy occurs when there is an abnormality in the brain, whereby nerve cell activity increases and disrupts neuron activity.
The time spent abroad depends on the type of epilepsy treatment that the patient receives.
Brain aneurysm repair is a surgical procedure performed to repair a brain aneurysm that has the potential to rupture, or has already ruptured.
Time spent abroad depends on the type of brain aneurysm being treated. Unruptured aneurysms tend to have a quicker recovery process than ruptured aneurysms.
Brain tumor surgery is performed by a neurosurgeon to remove all or part of a tumor from the brain.
This depends on the surgery performed, whether the patient needs rehabilitation, and on how well the patient recovers.
Leukemia is a type of cancer that affects the blood cells in the body. It usually begins in the bone marrow where an abnormality occurs in the white blood cells. Normal blood cells form, divide, and die to make room for new cells. Leukemia disrupts this process and prevents the blood cells from functioning properly.
The length of stay abroad will depend on the treatment plan and the patient's response to treatment.
Breast cancer treatment varies depending on the stage of the cancer and whether or not the cancer has spread. Cancer occurs when there is an abnormality in cell growth, which causes the cells to divide and grow quickly when the cell should die to make room for new cells.
The time spent abroad will depend on the treatment. If chemotherapy or radiotherapy are the methods of treatment, then multiple sessions are likely to be required which may mean a longer stay than with surgery.
Cataracts are cloudy patches in the lens of the eye that are common as a result of aging. Cataract removal surgery is recommended for patients who experience impairment to vision and are sensitive to light as a result of the cataract. The surgery involves the removal of the natural lens and it is most commonly replaced with a synthetic lens.
Patients can usually fly soon after cataract surgery, but should take precautions to avoid dryness in the eye.
Retina detachment occurs when the retina becomes separated from its surrounding tissue. When this occurs, it is important that it is repaired, as the retina cannot function correctly in this condition, and leaving it untreated can result in the permanent loss of vision.
The length of stay depends on the treatment, however any treatment involving gas bubbles in the eye will prevent patients from being suitable for flying until the bubble has gone.
A body lift is a combination of surgical procedures designed to improve the overall appearance of the patient's body, by removing excess skin and tightening the remaining skin. A body lift also involves the removal of underlying excess fat and can treat cellulite.
The procedure is most commonly performed on patients who have undergone bariatric surgery to lose weight, or who have lost significant amounts of weight through diet and exercise, and are left with excess skin around the body.
Patients must check with their surgeon that they are fit enough to fly home, as well as taking necessary precautions against deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
Eyelid surgery, also referred to as blepharoplasty or an eye lift, is a surgery performed to remove bagginess and puffiness from lower eyelids, and droopiness from upper eyelids. It is commonly performed as a cosmetic procedure, but may also be necessary for patients who have obstructed vision due to drooping upper lids. The doctor will usually make a small incision in the upper eyelid or beneath the lower eyelid, in order to remove excess skin and/or fat from the area.
Patients may need a follow up appointment to check progress or get stitches removed.
A facelift, which is also referred to as a rhytidectomy, is a surgical procedure which repositions facial skin, fat, and muscles, reducing wrinkles and creates a younger looking appearance. A facelift is usually sought after by patients who are aged between 40 and 70, and are showing signs of aging.
Patients may need a follow up appointment to check progress or get stitches removed.
Artificial insemination is the direct insertion of sperm into a woman's uterus, cervix, or fallopian tubes with the aim of achieving pregnancy. By directly inserting the sperm, it makes easier for the sperm to travel and fertilize the egg.
Egg freezing is the process of harvesting and freezing a number of matured female eggs for use in future IVF procedures.
As the process around ovary stimulation can take several weeks, it is best to discuss the logistical practicalities with your physician.
Embryo freezing, also referred to as embryo cryopreservation, is the freezing of embryos for use in future. It is often performed as part of an in vitro fertilization (IVF) cycle when there are more embryos produced than can be implanted into the uterus at one time.
Usually embryo freezing is performed following IVF treatment. It takes several weeks for the woman's natural cycle to be suppressed, the egg stimulation, egg retrieval, egg fertilization, and embryo cultivation to take place.
Circumcision is a surgical procedure to remove the foreskin which covers the glans penis (the tip of the penis). The procedure can be done by cutting around the foreskin with a scalpel, under either a local or general anesthetic. In young patients, there is also the option to use a compression ring, which is applied and causes the foreskin to fall off after several weeks.
Although patients can usually fly straight away, it may be uncomfortable sitting for a long flight.
Angiography, which may also be referred to as arteriography or angiogram, is a procedure performed to examine the inside of blood vessels, arteries, and veins through the use of images X-ray images.
Psoriasis is a common, chronic, autoimmune disease affecting the skin. Treatment aims to alleviate and eliminate symptoms.
The time needed for psoriasis treatment will depend on the method used. For example, light treatment may require a few sessions, whereas drug therapies may require ongoing monitoring with the specialist.
Kidney dialysis is a treatment which usually involves using a machine to take over kidney function to filter toxins, waste, and excess fluid from the body. The treatment is required by patients whose kidneys are not functioning properly.
The Bumrungrad Hospital is particularly known for its work in orthopedics.
