Thailand is an excellent medical tourism destination because it provides a wide range of medical treatments, including both public and private hospitals. In addition, Thailand is home to excellent, internationally-accredited private healthcare facilities, such as Vejthani Hospital, Bumrungrad International Hospital, Bangkok Hospital, Piyavate Hospital, Samitivej Hospital, Thonburi Bamrungmuang Hospital, Hospital, and so on. World-class hospitals like those found in Thailand have some of the best equipment available and are accredited by well-known organizations. These include the Thai Healthcare Accreditation Institute, Global Healthcare Accreditation (GHA), and Joint Commission International (JCI). By meeting the international healthcare quality standards for patient care and organization management, these accreditations provide peace of mind to patients that they will receive great care.
A key reason people choose medical tourism in Thailand is that medical procedures are significantly less expensive than care in western nations. By undergoing medical tourism, not only do patients save on the initial cost of treatments and care, but also travel-related costs. Thailand’s medical procedures and treatments are about 40-70 percent less costly than those in Australia and the United States. The average price for hip replacement surgery in Thailand is about $8,800 compared to $15,000-$130,000, depending on the surgeon’s experience and location within the United States. Similarly, knee replacement surgery averages around $14,500 compared to more than $35,000 in North America. Although the prices are low by Western standards, patients receive high-quality care from surgeons who trained at some of the world’s best schools and hospitals. Moreover, they are capable of performing complex procedures including some that may be prohibited in their home countries due to excessive risk.
