Thanks for the good wishes

The nurses, were pleasant, competent and normal looking.  You would perhaps prefer Yanhee Hosp.

I have recently spent some time at Christian and have nothing but high praise for the staff and doctors. Yes, there can be some communication issues at times, but usually quickly resolved. The doctors are first rate, many come from Chula and also work at Bumrungrad. I saw my doctor during his hours at Bumrungrad and he told me to get the surgery done at Christian - same doctor, same anesthetist, same equipment, just cheaper "air" - I had previously seen him at Christian so there already was a connection with the hospital.

They worked directly with my insurance (Aetna Thailand) and all I had to pay was 60 baht on a +100K baht bill.

Amazing hospital but as I Sheryl has said " in Thailand it's the Dr. you choose that's really more important than the hospital " with that said many times I locate the better ( and more experienced ) Dr.'s I want to see and they are available at BCH even if they are not there full time and just there a few hours once a week like the cardiologist and ENT Dr.'s I use . This hospital has been around for decades and is also very very clean .

It also has a very good quality if professional nursing care, much better than what I have observed in most of the more expensive private hospitals. (Referring here to professional nursing care, not how quickly someone pops in the refill your water pitcher!)

Hi all, I want to get medical treatment from Bangkok Christian Hospital. I couldn't find the way to contact on website (I don't know Thai Language). Can anyone please help me to contact them to get an appointment and estimated cost for Rib Resection by thoracic surgeon.

 

By the way, I am 45 yrs old female from Bangladesh. During a CT Scan, it was discovered that there is a marked expansion with cystic lesion and calcifications measuring about AP-4.0cm X TD-4.0cm X CC-5.2cm and suggested that I've Monostotic Fibrous dysplasia of the 9th  Rib (Right).

 
Furthermore, I was recommended to undergo the Rib Resection procedure. I need your suggestions and advice me with estimated cost and estimated duration of days to complete the procedure as soon as possible.

When I went there for an ear infection,  I was left with the distinct impression they were recommending unnecessary expensive procedures etc

i would think hospitals in india can also do this surgery and the cost significantly less in India also, and quality high.

an upscale thai gal friend went to another private bkk hospital because of a sore throat and spent one night receiving iv antibiotics and got every blood test known to mankind but per paperwork seems they did not do a throat culture.  about 1200 usd total cost but has insurance.  a usa doctor i know thought most tests not called for

Agree. It is doubtful BCH has a surgeon with experience in this, I think they only have 1-2 thoracic surgeons total. At a private hosp[ital in Thailand this will likely cost over 400,000 baht and it will be a struggle to find surgeon with appropriate experience. I will get back with more specific suggestions later but indeed India is best bet both in terms of price and finding a surgeon with experience performing surgery for this condition.
