The doctor and all the other staff are very thorough and compassionate. I came here for an angiogram, and I was somewhat scared at the thought of getting it, but the doctor and staff were absolutely fantastic. I ended up having a stent, and the whole team made it bearable. Thank you to all the staff who really went over and above for me. I feel so lucky to have chosen Thonburi hospital for my treatment.

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. šŸ˜„ The hospital was clean and tidy. Everything was modern. I really wish my local hospitals were this impressive.

Glinda Deblois, 22 November 2020

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.

What you need to know about Knee Ligament Surgery (MCL) in Thailand

Ligaments of the knee

Before you haveĀ knee ligament replacement surgery, your movement is restricted and your joint is stiffened and there are severe pain and inflammation. Your every step is painful. Surgery is performed to help you get rid of pain and inflammation. After being operated upon, your walking ability is improved. Pain and inflammation subside. You can again take part in sports after a complete recovery.

The knee joint is a major weight-bearing joint of your body. It is present between the thigh bone and shin bone. Its stability is maintained by a number of ligaments. One of them is Medial Collateral Ligament (MCL). It is also known as tibial collateral ligament. It is one of the most important ligaments of the knee joint. It is located at the inner aspect of your joint at the medial side. This ligament is responsible for the side to side movement and stability of your knee. It is more commonly damaged than lateral collateral ligament. Damage can be due to accidents, automobile injury, sports injury, etc. Overstretching or a hit by a hard object on the side of the knee can cause the tearing of its fibers. It is a painful condition and movement is affected. There is inflammation due to bleeding in the joint. The torn ligament can be fixed by knee ligament replacement surgery.

The price of a Knee Ligament Surgery (MCL) can vary according to each individualā€™s case and will be determined based on photos and an in-person assessment with the specialist.

What does a Knee Ligament Surgery (MCL) Procedure Involve?

The patient is sedated by giving general or local anesthesia. A small incision is given to insert an arthroscope which is an instrument to view inside the joint cavity. After a complete inspection, an incision is given on the inner aspect of the knee. If the ligament is torn at its point of attachment to the femur or tibia, it is stitched or stapled together. It can even be stitched if it is torn in the middle. However, sometimes it is damaged to such an extent that replacement surgery is needed. Hamstring tendons from your own body are grafted at its place. Sometimes tendons from a donor are employed. The donor's tendon is fixed at the same place where the medial collateral ligament used to be. It is placed there using staples, screws, or stitches which cannot be removed later on. After this procedure, incisions are sewn and a bandage is applied over it.

How Long Should I Stay in Thailand for a Knee Ligament Surgery (MCL) Procedure?

It is not a lengthy surgery and requires only 1 to 1.5 hours. After this, your health condition is monitored for some time. When your vitals return to normal, you are shifted to a room. An overnight stay at the hospital is advised after which you are discharged. Even after being discharged, you have to visit your doctor on a regular basis for some time. You should plan to stay in Thailand for at least 14 days after your surgery, during this period, your wounds heal and stitches are removed. If dissolvable stitches are given, they will dissolve during this time. When you get better enough to go home, your doctors tell you to leave for home.

What's the Recovery Time for Knee Ligament Surgery (MCL) Procedures in Thailand?

A medial collateral ligament tear can be of three degrees and each requiring a different length of time for recovery. In the case of knee ligament surgery, 6 months are needed for complete recovery. Office work can be started after 4 to 5 weeks. You can return to jogging 4 months after the surgery. 6 months are needed to get back to sports. Recovery time can even be prolonged to a year depending upon various factors such as your environment, diet, physical condition, etc. During the recovery period, you suffer from pain and inflammation for which medicines are prescribed

What sort of Aftercare is Required for Knee Ligament Surgery (MCL) Procedures in Thailand?

Below are the aftercare instructions after you have been discharged from the hospital:

  • Do have regular check-ups until you are asked to stop by the doctor.
  • Take your medicines regularly, as and when prescribed by your physician. Avoid self-medication.
  • Eat healthy and nutritious food for quick recovery. Follow a diet plan made by an expert.
  • Wear knee cuffs to brace your knee. It will help you avoid unnecessary movement.
  • Use walking aids such as crutches and walkers for easy movement.
  • Do not live alone. Make sure a relative or a friend live with you to look after you.
  • Avoid taking a bath in the early few days. A wet bandage can be the cause of infection.
  • Keep your knee above the level of your feet by putting pillows below it.
  • Use ice packs to help you with swelling. These are very effective in reducing inflammation.
  • Start physiotherapy under expert supervision. It increases the pace of recovery.

What's the Success Rate of Knee Ligament Surgery (MCL) Procedures in Thailand?

For medial collateral ligament surgery, the success rate is reported to be 85% to 90%. Infection and blood clot formation can be one of the causes of failed surgery. In case this operation fails, another surgery is performed. This is called a revision of replacement surgery. This works out but does not give as positive results as achieved by the first successful surgery. You are able to walk without pain. But you cannot do sports again. It might damage your ligament again making it difficult for you to walk. Give yourself time and care for better recovery and to prevent failure.

Are there Alternatives to Knee Ligament Surgery (MCL) Procedures in Thailand?

Surgery should never be the first and foremost option. Consider other options before going through surgery. Consult your doctor to know if you need surgery or not. Following are some alternatives to knee ligament surgery:

  • Stem cell therapy: stem cells are extracted from different parts of your own body. These cells have the ability to differentiate into any kind of specialized cell. These are injected into the joint, where they regenerate torn fibers of medial collateral ligament. Pain and inflammation are considerably reduced and movement is increased.
  • Prolotherapy: an irritant such as dextrose is injected into the joint. It stimulates the regeneration of MCL fibers. The repair of ligament promotes joint movement.
  • Plasma rich platelets: growth factors are separated from platelets after centrifugation. These are injected into the joint. Growth factors stimulate the growth of the torn fibers, reducing pain and swelling.

Whilst the information presented here has been accurately sourced and verified by a medical professional for its accuracy, it is still advised to consult with your doctor before pursuing a medical treatment at one of the listed medical providers. This content was last updated on 28/11/2020.
