Considered by many as a global leader in medical tourism, Thailand attracts over two million foreign patients seeking treatment each year, many of whom undergo procedures at one of the many JCI-accredited hospitals in the capital Bangkok. Qunomedical has partnered with Bangkok's top, internationally-accredited hospitals so patients seeking a gender reassignment procedure can undergo this highly specialized branch of surgery at up to 80% less than the average cost in the U.K., U.S., and Australia and receive the same quality of care as they would in their homeland.
Sex reassignment surgery is usually pursued by individuals who identify with a gender different than the one assigned at birth, known to the medical community as gender dysphoria. Gender dysphoria is the distress that an individual experiences when the anatomical sex assigned at birth doesn’t correspond with the gender that the individual identifies with mentally, socially, and culturally. Male-to-female sex reassignment surgery involves a number of procedures where the ultimate goal of most patients seeking a full transition is to re-shape the penis into a vagina (vaginoplasty). Some of the world's best gender reassignment surgeons are based in Thailand, which is home to over 50 JCI-accredited hospitals (29 of which are located in Bangkok). JCI or Joint Commission International represents the gold standard in global health care, with accredited hospitals boasting the latest technology and the best doctors. World-class surgeons and state-of-the-art technology aren’t Bangkok's only draw. The Grand Palace, the Wat Phra Kaew or Temple of the Emerald Buddah, Siam Square’s shopping area and the renowned Chatuchak weekend market are well worth a visit. A trip to Bangkok wouldn’t be complete without sampling the local cuisine; from street stalls selling Pad Thai to more upscale restaurants there's a lot to choose from.
