Come to use the service regularly. Service is very good. The diabetes department may have to wait for a very long time. There are few doctors and many patients. It's generally considered good.
From the moment I walked in to the time I left, I was well looked after. The nurses were all lovely and helped me deal with the stress I had before my procedure. Thanks to them I felt comfortable and relaxed. Thank you, I really appreciate the hardwork. The doctor is very professional and quick. The departments are clean, tidy, and well maintained. Plus there is a coffee shop, as well as several shops. 👍
I understand why this hospital is considered the best in Thailand. Traveled all the way from Australia to get my treatment here after I heard good things about it. Superb staff, very friendly, attentive, and helpful. Many of the staff can speak English, so communication is not a problem. I asked many questions and told them my concerns, and they answered patiently and put me at ease. Had to stay for several days after my treatment. The room was super clean, well-designed, and definitely made me feel comfortable. The nurses checked on me every hour or so, and the food was surprisingly great. Though having to stay in a hospital is never a good experience, I would say my time in Bumrungrad was a pleasant one. A bit pricey when compared to other hospitals around the area, but with the quality service and high-level care offered, it was all worth it.

A bunion is a bony bump that occurs when some of the bones in the front part of your foot move out of place and causes your big toe to point laterally towards your little toe. A bunion is a foot deformity that can be painful. When nonsurgical treatment methods cannot relieve the pain and the problem restricts you from carrying out everyday activities, your doctor may recommend for you to undergo bunion surgery (also known as a bunionectomy, bunion removal, or hallux valgus correction) to correct the deformed area.
Bunion surgery can be performed under local anesthetic, but you may also request a general anesthetic. During the surgery, your surgeon straightens the bone behind the big toe by cutting the ligaments at the joint. If your bunion is severe, the surgeon may need to have the bone cut by performing a technique called an osteotomy.
You may leave the hospital on the same day of the procedure, but you need to stay in Thailand for 2 weeks. During your stay, you will attend follow-up hospital checkups to monitor your healing as well as for the removal of stitches.
The full recovery period can take around four to six months. However, you should be able to return to work and some light activities within four to six weeks. You may also drive after two weeks if necessary.
During the first couple of weeks, you will need to wear a cast or surgical boot to protect your foot and you make sure you do not get your stitches wet. Your surgeon will likely send you to physical therapy so you can learn exercises to strengthen your foot and lower leg. Since your foot will remain swollen to some degree for a few months, try to wear shoes with ample room to minimize the pain.
Bunion surgery is known to be highly successful with almost 95% of patients indicating they would recommend it to other people. However, just like any surgery, there is the risk of some side effects and complications, such as recurrence of the bunion; the surgery overcorrects the bunion so your toe points inward.
Bunion surgery should only be performed when it is severe. If you do not want to undergo this procedure, you can opt for the alternatives, including taking over-the-counter medications (acetaminophen, ibuprofen, or naproxen sodium), changing your shoes, using nonmedicated bunion pads, applying ice to your bunion, and using shoe inserts to help distribute the pressure evenly.
A severe bunion can cause discomfort, pain, and limit your mobility. After bunion surgery, you will be able to complete your everyday routines.
