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.
Amazing doctors, amazing staff. The doctor and nurses were very caring. Answered all of my questions clearly and provided excellent service. They were all quick and efficient. The room I stayed in was very comfortable and the food was great. If you want to undergo medical treatment in Phuket, you should definitely choose Bangkok Hospital Phuket.
Overly happy with the results of my treatment. The clinic is clean and well-maintained. The surgeon and staff were all cheerful and friendly, and very professional. You can tell that they really care about you and passionate about what they do! They are very informative and focused on patient care and healing. Thankyou Rattinan Clinic🤗🤗 for anyone looking for a place to undergo cosmetic/plastic treatment in Bangkok, you should really give them a try.
Service is very good Khun Morn Phadon, the obstetric department is very good, very kind, the antenatal care to both doctors.Was pregnant and had both miscarriages, but both children were safe. Doctors and nurses take good care. The doctor said very encouraging. The cheapest caesarean section is 48,000 baht (year 2020) including sterilization 53,000 baht.
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.
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.

Gastric Sleeve Surgery is a weight loss procedure in which a large part of the stomach is surgically removed, reducing the stomach size by 75% to 80%, with the remaining portion of the stomach looking like a banana or a sleeve. Given the severely reduced stomach size, patients will be unable to consume and digest as much food before quashing their hunger and feeling full - as a result, rapid weight loss can be achieved. This type of surgery is non-reversible and should only be considered as a final option.
A person is termed obese if their body mass index (BMI) is greater than 40 and their weight is 100 lbs / 50 kg more than their ideal weight. For these people, Bariatric Surgery is an available option. There are many associated risks concerned with Obesity that can lead to hypertension, infertility, diabetes, sleep apnea, and much more. When methods, such as dieting and exercising, do not work, a Gastric Sleeve procedure can be the final solution.
It's important to keep in mind, however, that not everyone is a good candidate to this procedure. Each individual should carefully consider the best options available to them, considering present condition, health history, cost, recovery time, success rate and pros and cons of the surgery.
Surgery is performed under general anesthesia using a laparoscope, with several small incisions being made on the belly, a tube fitted with a camera (laparoscope) is then inserted through these incisions to give a clear picture of the insides. The surgeon will view these images, before beginning the process of surgically removing 75% to 80% of the stomach's volume using special surgical instruments. The remaining stomach pouch now resembles a dramatically reduced sleeve or banana. All the instruments are removed and the incisions are stitched and bandages applied to the wounds.
Gastric sleeve surgery is an inpatient procedure that lasts about one hour in the operation theatre. After this, you are moved to a recovery room where your vitals are monitored. A two to three days hospital stay is required after surgery and you are discharged when your condition is stable. You should stay in Thailand for at least 7-8 days for follow up check-ups. During this period, you are kept under review and the stitches are removed after 5 to 7 days.
It will take two to three months to get back to normal meals and the amount of food you will eat is considerably decreased. You will likely suffer from a swollen and sore stomach for several days, with medicines being prescribed to help deal with the pain during this period. After two to four weeks, you can return to some normal activities, however, on average, six weeks of rest is required. As it is laparoscopic surgery, less time is required to recover and scars are small which fade away over time.
The following are some points to consider after leaving the hospital:
The success rate of Gastric Sleeve is approximately 80% to 90%. You can expect to lose 60% of your excess weight within 12 to 18 months post-surgery. Furthermore, numerous large clinical trials and studies have proven that the surgery improves or resolves obesity-related health problems, such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, fatty liver disease, and sleep apnea.
While Gastric Sleeve is an overall safe bariatric surgical procedure with high success rates, complications may still occur during and after the surgery. Some of the main risks of the procedures are bleeding, blood clots, heartburn, weight regain, vitamin or nutrient deficiency, and stenosis.
The following are some non-surgical or minimally invasive alternatives to gastric sleeve surgery:
1. Gastric Band - Considered a reversible Bariatric Surgery option, a silicone device is fitted at the top portion of the stomach, cutting off the bottom section and creating a small stomach pouch above. The reduced stomach size now means the volume of food consumed is much smaller before the patient becomes full, thus resulting in rapid weight loss. Once the desired weight is achieved, the band can be surgically removed.
2. Gastric Bypass - The stomach is divided into two parts; a small upper pouch and a large lower ‘remnant’ pouch. The small intestine is rearranged accordingly, bypassing the large pouch and thus significantly reducing the volume of the stomach.
3. Gastric Balloon - This non-invasive procedure does not involve surgery and instead an inflatable balloon-like device is endoscopically placed into the stomach and inflated, thus reducing the capacity of the stomach. with the balloon occupying most of the stomachs volume, the patient becomes full much quicker, leading to rapid weight loss. Once the desired weight is achieved, the balloon is deflated and removed.
