My father had hernia repair here and the whole procedure went very smooth. The surgeon and all the staff was very friendly and offered the best service. My father was very well looked after. Really appreciate all the work they did...
The staff were amazing!!! Also the doctor and nurses were fantastic. I couldn't have wished for more caring individuals to look after me. They go the extra mile to try and put me at ease. I feel like I was getting first-class treatment during my stay there. Thanks to the highly qualified doctor and up to date surgical equipment, my surgery went well. Surgery cost is very affordable as well. :)
I love the surgeon and staff here. They are very attentive, caring, and professional. I have received nothing but 5 star treatment. The surgeon helped me feel relaxed about my surgery and the nurse makes me feel comfortable and feel ok. They even help me to get back home sooner. Cannot praise everyone enough. They were absolutely fantastic. Plus, the waiting time is short and the clinic is very clean.
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. 👍
The price is a bit expensive, but the service was incredible so I don't mind. I had a hip replacement, and the surgeon was very professional and knowledgeable. Felt scared at first, but since the surgeon was very reassuring, the whole experience became stress-free. The staff were very friendly, efficient, and courteous. Everyone was very encouraging as well, helping me to recover faster. Also, the food was very good. 😄 The hospital was clean and tidy. Everything was modern. I really wish my local hospitals were this impressive.
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.

Your doctor may give you sedation to minimize any discomfort and in some rare cases, your doctor may recommend general anesthetic. During the surgery, a long and flexible tube with a tiny camera on its tip, known as a colonoscope, is inserted into your rectum. The colonoscope will transmit images of the lining of your colon so your doctor can examine it for any changes or abnormalities.
You will be allowed to leave the hospital on the same day of the procedure, but you will need to stay in Thailand for about 3 to 4 days after the procedure. During your stay, you will attend hospital check-ups for review and for the result.
It is advisable for you to rest for the day after your colonoscopy and you can go back to work the next day. You may pass gas, feel bloated, or cramps for several hours but that is completely normal. On your first bowel movement after the colonoscopy, you may notice a small amount of blood, but it is not a cause for alarm.
After the procedure, walking will help with any discomfort you may have. You can also resume your normal diet and exercise after a few days. However, you will need to avoid certain medications temporarily, such as blood-thinning medications.
Colonoscopy has over a 90% success rate. The side effects and risks associated with colonoscopy include puncture of the colon, bleeding, severe abdominal pain, chills, fever, and excessive rectal bleeding. However, these risks and side effects are very rare.
Some people want to avoid colonoscopy due to personal reasons, such as feeling nervous or they do not wish to be sedated. In this case, you can undergo one of the alternatives, including Fecal Immunochemical Test (FIT), fecal occult blood tests, stool DNA, double-contrast barium enema, sigmoidoscopy, and CT colonoscopy.
After the procedure, your doctor will look for any abnormalities inside your colon and then they can determine the best treatment for your condition. If you do have a polyp or other abnormal tissue, your doctor can also remove them.
