Thailand is a world-famous, budget-friendly tourist destination that receives millions of visitors yearly. Millions of these visitors also have also chosen to receive orthopedic treatments in the country. The year-round tropical weather and the close proximity to some of the world's finest beaches should be enough to make the medical visit worth it.
Why Should I Have Orthopedic Treatment in Thailand?
Due to lower labour and living cost, treatments in the country come at a much lower cost than the United States or Europe. The lower price does not come with a lack of quality since many Thai medical professionals receive their training in first-world countries like the United States and Australia. Many doctors are fluent in English due to the rise in English speaking patients in the country. Many Thai medical facilities use up-to-date technology and they probably resemble hospitals back in your own home country.
Intense sports, physical labor jobs, or just old age can take a toll on the musculoskeletal system. There are many specialists in Thailand that are trained in various fields of orthopedics. Multitudes of private clinics, with most of them in being in Bangkok, are JCI-accredited. Knee and hip replacements are extremely common in private clinics. Tendon repair and meniscectomy surgeries are also very common.
