Top 5 Questions
1. Is it Safe?
The hospitals and surgeons we recommend are leading healthcare providers in Thailand, and all follow international quality standards. All surgeries are carried out in International Standard hospitals with English speaking International patient centers and attended by full medical teams, not clinics. The hospitals and medical teams are all of the highest standards, with many having international qualifications and experience. The hospital that we have had chosen based on our research and client satisfaction having similar if not better standards of private healthcare, as you will find at home, with the same high quality technical and health care equipment without the high price
