Its a common issue people have, they need medical work done but the cost is far beyond what they can afford, options seem very limited for most people don’t they? Well, many people seem to be looking at Thailand to resolve these issues.
Some quick facts, Thailand’s medical treatment match’s America’s, Australia and British but it cost’s less then 1/3 the price. Dental work in Thailand is also the same, with the quality been equal to our western counterparts but the bill been far below.
There are many medical centers in Thailand who are happy to work on forign patients, this work can include but is not limited to Doctors, Dentists, Plastic Surgeons. I recently was reading a article about a woman who was loosing all her teeth due to a genetic disorder, in her home city of Sydney she was told it would cost in excess of $15, 000 to have fake teeth put in for her.
This was far beyond what she could afford so she start to reach having the work done in other country’s, she eventuality found a doctor in Thailand who could do the work for $4000, which means she only spent $6000 including airfare and accommodation! That’s more then half price saved!
Some facts people do need to consider before flying to another country to have work done. Thailand does not have the same rules and laws as western country’s, in most case’s if you have a problem with the work you get done there will be no refund and generally you will be charged to have the work corrected.
Some medical clinics are not as clean as most people would like, and the chance to get a infection in some of these medical clinics is a little be high for my liking, but this can be avoided with a little bit of research.
