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 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.

Spinal fusion surgery is a surgical procedure to connect two or more vertebrae in your spine so that they can heal into a single bone. The goal of the procedure is to correct problems within the vertebrae (such as to restore stability to the spine or to eliminate painful motion) as the bones will not move like they used to and keep you from stretching nearby ligaments, nerves, and muscles. The surgery is often recommended for people with back pain caused by degenerative disk disease, scoliosis, fracture, tumors, spine infection, spondylolisthesis, and spinal stenosis.
The procedure is performed under general anesthetic, the surgery begins with an incision in your abdomen (anterior lumbar interbody fusion) or in your back directly over your spine (posterior fusion) to access your spine. Then, your doctor removes the joint or joints between the painful or damaged disks. After that, the vertebrae are fused together permanently and kept from moving pieces of bone from another part of your body or a bone bank (called a bone graft). Screws, rods, or metal plates may be used to help hold the vertebrae together.
You are required to stay in the hospital for two to seven days following your spinal fusion surgery. You should aim to stay in Thailand for about eight to ten more days for initial recovery, follow-up checkup, and for the stitches to be removed.
Recovery from spinal fusion surgery can take as long as six to twelve months. If your job is not physically demanding, you may be able to get back to work and some of your activities within 3-4 months, but make sure you consult your doctor about your recovery timeline to avoid any complications.
For the first six months following the surgery, you need to avoid bending, twisting, and heavy lifting. You will have physical therapy where you will learn how to move, sit, stand, and walk properly. You will also need to attend follow-up appointments after six weeks, six months, a year, or two years following your surgery, but you can do this with your local doctor. After you recover, you will need to maintain a healthy lifestyle, such as having regular exercise and following a healthy diet.
Spinal fusion surgery is generally safe and effective. Approximately 80% to 95% of people who have spinal fusion are satisfied with the result and about 70% said that their pain is significantly reduced. However, as with any surgery, there are some potential side effects and risks, such as bleeding, blood clots, poor wound healing, infection, injury to nerves or blood vessels in and around the spine, pseudoarthrosis, tissue rejection, and risk from anesthesia.
There are some alternatives that you can consider, such as artificial disk replacement surgery, Intradiscal Electrothermal Therapy (IDET), and posterior dynamic stabilization. Make sure you discuss with your doctor the best options for you.
Before spinal fusion surgery, you may suffer from fractures, instability, or deformities in the spine and you may experience back or neck pain that limits your movement and mobility. After the surgery, the problem in your spine should be treated and any symptoms should be relieved, allowing you to return to your normal life.
