▶ General Information

Thailand has established a reputation for having internationally accredited medical facilities, with cutting edge technology and professionally trained doctors and nurses. From Bangkok to Phuket, Hua Hin to Chiang Mai, there are numerous medical promotion packages available for travelers looking to receive medical treatment in Thailand.

In 2010, the Joint Commission International Disease or Condition-Specific Care Certification (DCSC) changed its name to Clinical Care Program Certification (CCPC). CCPC includes 15 categories of clinical services for certification and several Thailand hospitals have received certificates from the Joint Commission International (JCI) for CCPC, including Bangkok Hospital Medical Center (Acute Coronary Syndrome, Breast Cancer Conserving Therapy Program, Heart Failure Program and Primary Stroke Center), Bumrungrad International (Primary Stroke Program and Acute Myocardial Infarction with ST Segment Elevation), Samitivej Srinakarin Hospital (Low Back Pain program and Primary Stroke program) and Samitivej Sukhumvit Hospital (Lung Cancer Program, Acute Myocardial Infarction Program and Osteoarthritis of the Knee Program).

Hospitals and other medical facilities in Thailand pride themselves on their high standards, and many have subjected their premises and systems to the most rigorous classification by applying for accreditation and certification, whereby a qualified standards organization - distinct from the healthcare organization under review - assesses the hospital or facility to determine if it meets a set of standards and requirements designed to improve the quality of patient care. This voluntary process provides a tangible and visible commitment by the hospital to continually ensure a safe environment for its patients and staff. Thailand was the first country in Asia to achieve JCI accreditation in 2002, and 13 hospitals are now accredited.

Lasik is a step forward in radial keratotomy for the treatment of visionary problems offering an alternative to contact lenses and eyeglasses. As in similar Laser eye surgeries, the cornea or front part of the eye is reshaped, thus allowing light traveling through to focus correctly onto the retina at the back of the eye

Holistic / Anti Aging Thailand has treatments to suit everyone’s preferences and needs, from the ancient to the modern, as well as from the traditional to the alternative. Holistic health is concerned with integrating all aspects of one’s life into a healthy whole. For example, rather than prescribing a bag of pills, a holistic practitioner would meet and discuss all the different elements of a person’s life before making any recommendations. These recommendations often focus on the integration of a person’s lifestyle, diet, fitness and stress management procedures. Typically, they will try to induce the person’s body to heal itself, rather than resorting to the ‘modern’ practice of pharmaceutical treatments. Often, recommendations are made to detoxify and cleanse the body through diet, exercise, healthy habits, natural nutritional supplements, and in the beginning, perhaps colonics or hydrotherapy to rid the body of its accumulated toxins.

Since they play a key role in one’s general well-being, holistic medicine goes even further by bringing emotions into the picture as having an influence on one’s physical well-being; recognizing that everything is connected and interrelated. Treatments might include yoga, meditation, dance and music therapy, or other calming therapies such as walking therapy and mindfulness. Many health resorts and wellness retreats, in addition to private consultants throughout Thailand, can be found practicing holistic medicine and therapy. Among the newer and rapidly increasing facilities in Thailand are those offering ‘anti-aging’ or ‘longevity’ treatments. These centers perform thorough assessments of an individual’s body, including complete blood counts, blood chemistry, urinalysis, as well as micronutrient level analysis, and in some places, heavy metal toxicity, as well as hormone and inflammatory panels.

You might also receive total fitness and body composition assessments in addition to detailed cardiac function testing. More specialized facilities even offer genomic assessments nowadays, along with extremely sophisticated lab tests so that doctors and specialists can present a deeply personalized analysis offering a new approach to living a longer, healthier life. Post-evaluation treatments will often include a special dietary regime and exercise program, nutritional supplements and bio-identical hormones, as well as skincare products and other lifestyle prescriptions. One of the more famous holistic and anti-aging clinics in Thailand is Addlife, where American Board Certified doctors in Anti-aging and Regenerative Medicine use modern, state-of-the-art equipment and technology to analyze one’s condition to treat age-related decline. A visit to such a centre will illuminate you with regard to your specific biological make-up and needs, advising you as to the best diet for your body, which nutrients you need most, as well as specific hormones that can contribute to restoring youthfulness; a truly rejuvenating experience.
