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...
Received breast augmentation and I'm soooo in love with the results. Better than I expected! I did research for a few months and landed my decision in Bangkok. Kamol Hospital was always mentioned as one of the best places to go for cosmetic surgeries, and I'm glad I choose this hospital :) All the staff was absolutely fantastic, knowledgeable, and caring. The surgeon was attentive and took the time to discuss all my options. The nurses are all very caring and treat me like family.
I love everything about this place! From the facilities, the clean rooms and equipment, the nurses, to the surgeon! I know the minute that I met the surgeon that I was going to be in safe hands and an expert in his field. Besides his skill and professionalism, he did an excellent job of easing my fears. I am so ecstatic about the final results. ☺️The nurses and other staff are professional and caring as well. They take great care of me, and I was so comfortable during my stay. Thank you, Bangkok Plastic Surgery, the whole experience felt so easy. ☺️
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.

The surgical procedure to remove the uterus, which may also include the removal of the cervix, ovaries, and/or the Fallopian tubes. Performed by a gynecologist, it is by far the most common gynecological surgical procedure. After the operation, a patient will no longer be able to have children. If you have not yet gone through the menopause, you will no longer have periods.
A hysterectomy is used to treat conditions that affect the female reproductive system, such as heavy periods (menorrhagia), chronic (long-term) pelvic pain, non-cancerous tumors (fibroids) and cancer of the ovaries, womb, cervix or fallopian tubes.
It is a major operation with a long recovery time. It is usually only considered after alternative, less invasive treatments have been tried.
There are several circumstances when you may be recommended to have a hysterectomy. The most common reasons include heavy periods, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), endometriosis, prolapse of the uterus, cancer.
The procedure begins with sedating the patient using a general anesthetic. After this, it can either be performed in the traditional way, that is open surgery or by a minimally invasive technique. However, which method is used depends upon the condition of the patient.
With a traditional Open Hysterectomy, a 5 to 7-inch incision is made across the abdomen. It can either be up and down or side to side. The Uterus is removed from the incised area and stitches are put in place and bandages are applied over it.
Whereas with the Minimally Invasive Hysterectomy, it is performed by various methods, but the basics are the same; for the Vaginal Hysterectomy, an incision is made in the vagina and the uterus is removed through it. Stitches are applied within so no visible scarring is seen. For the Laparoscopic Hysterectomy, a laparoscope with small surgical tools is inserted through several small incisions in the abdomen and the uterus is removed accordingly with minimal scarring.
The surgeon may also opt to remove all parts or only a part of your uterus, depending on the reason for a hysterectomy and may also follow the removal of your cervix and/or ovaries
Removal of Cervix
Subtotal or Supracervical hysterectomy - only the upper part of the uterus is removed, keeping the cervix in place.
Removal of Ovaries
Open hysterectomy is a 1-2 hour procedure and after the operation, a 2-3 day stay at the hospital is advised. Your health conditions are regularly monitored during this period. If everything goes fine, you are allowed to leave. With Minimally invasive techniques, it can be an outpatient procedure and you are discharged on the same day. Still, you have to stay in Thailand for at least 14 days post-op. During this time, you will go back to the hospital for a few follow-up check-ups. Pain killers are prescribed to help with the discomfort. Your stitches are removed after 7-10 days, at which point you can continue your recovery before traveling home 2 weeks after the procedure.
An average of 4-6 weeks is required to recover from an open hysterectomy. While minimally invasive techniques for hysterectomy take only 3-4 weeks, hence why these methods are more commonplace these days, given the lack of scarring too. You should allow at least 6 weeks before returning to work and longer if your job requires physical labor.
You will need to rest as much as possible and a follow-up appointment should be arranged 6-12 weeks after your surgery to check your recovery progress. This can be arranged with any specialist in your home country.
Also, consider the following points when recovering:
Hysterectomy has a success rate of 80% and can cure several medical conditions as mentioned above. As for some women, it is the answer to several years of suffering from uterine problems. For others, it is the last resort to treat a life-threatening condition such as cancer.
Since this is major surgery, possible risks, and side effects could include chronic pain, vaginal prolapse, vaginal fistula, urinary incontinence, wound infections, blood clots, or a hemorrhage. There are also long term risks associated with having a hysterectomy which should also be considered, such as an increase in the risk of heart attack and stroke, urinary problems, sexual function problems, depression, hormone deficiency, or a decrease in blood supply to the ovaries.
There are a few alternatives to a hysterectomy:
