This has become a very popular form of travel in the past few years for Australian wishing to have Surgery in Thailand. It is a great travel option for for many reason, which is why Surgery Group tours fill up very quickly. A group tour is a fully escorted Surgery and or Dental tour, with up to 12 clients PLUS partners or companions. These groups depart through out the year so there is always one that you can join to have your cheaper surgery in Thailand.
Meditravel Groups traveling to Thailand for surgery are escorted by one of our most Experienced Meditravel Client Managers, who have had surgery so know what you will be going through.These ladies are there to ensure that you have someone there when you come back from surgery and then to oversea your recovery. They are their primarily to assist you through the surgery day and return back to your hotel. On the surgery day they can sit with you in the consultation to ensure that you understand everything that is discussed. Many times patients end up like bunnies in the headlights when discussing the surgery. They get caught up in the realisation that they are finally going to have the surgery they have been planning for months and forget to ask some of the more important questions.
After surgery once you are able to look after yourselves, you are returned to your hotel for your recovery period until your check up 7-10 days later. During your time at the hotel the escort is on hand should you need them to ask questions or need assistance with medications and bandages. The escort is not there as a social event coordinator but as a guide to assist client in knowing what restrictions their surgeries will have on their ability to engage on tourist activities. Having travelled to Phuket many times the escorts knowledge on the area and all things shopping is invaluable to clients.
Who should consider joining a Thailand Surgery Group a tour you ask?
- Single Travellers .
- First Time Travellers
- Few Friends travelling together
- Wanting a unique surgery travel experience
- Wanting a little extra TLC
- Or those who just want that extra reassurance of someone on hand.
Within a few days of returning to the hotel clients rarely need the assistance of their escort, however knowing that they are staying with them at the hotel make them accessible and easily contactable. As not all client will have surgery on the same day the first few day for the escort is very hectic and they still always make sure you know how to get in touch with them at the Phuket Hospital when they are there, should you need.
