Annie and I have spent a lot of time visiting various Bangkok hospitals both as patients for minor ailments and on fact finding missions.
Although there are lots of clinics and hospitals offering cheap cosmetic services, Care, Expertise, Friendliness, Safety and Value were the qualities that we wanted to find in one provider. Lots of clinics offer cheap surgeries but in our opinion are not safe or clean or do not offer care consistent with western hospitals. Several nice hospitals offer all the above except value, well unless you are a Thai national and then your cosmetic procedure will cost less then half the cost for a foreigner.
We thought long and hard and asked lots of questions before feeling we could recommend any single hospital or clinic.
Phaholyothin International Hospital officially opened its doors on the 22nd July 1987.
A leading medical provider in Bangkok, the hospital is continually developing state-of-the-art operating rooms such as the newly opened Hybrid Operating Room that provides crucial treatment for patients requiring heart surgery.
It is conveniently located within walking distance of Sanam Pao BTS Skytrain station.
Sanam Pao is about 10 minutes ride from Silom, the central business and entertainment hub of Bangkok and about 15 minutes from Asok and Nana stations, Thonglor and Ekkamai, arguably the most popular nightspots in the city. Take a look on this clickable map.
