Joint Replacement

Thailand Medical Travel Is Affordable, Safe, and Bound by the Highest Standards of Healthcare

Please allow us to state this straightforwardly: The reason complicated procedures cost less in Thailand is because of the healthcare system here, not because they are of lower quality.

The quality in Thailand is, in certain areas of treatment, higher than in some healthcare systems in the West. This could be because of a greater dedication to “doing no harm,” or because of the culture of Buddhism here, or because the emphasis on healthcare profiteering is less robust.

Whatever the reason, you, the “healthcare customer,” is priority #1 inside Thailand’s surgical clinics. They are not only staffed by dedicated professionals, they are some of the most innovative and advanced medical facilities in the world.

So, at the risk of being repetitive, you will be cared for by people who are devoted to helping you improve your quality of life, in a hospital or clinic that would fit right into any major city anywhere on earth. And, ImagineHealth has developed partnerships with them in order to facilitate your joint replacement surgery.

Which Joint Replacement Surgeries Can ImagineHealth Facilitate For You?

Since we work in close conjunction with some of the very finest international hospitals and clinics in Thailand, all of the most common joint replacement procedures are available to you. This of course includes hip replacements and knee replacements, as well as less common procedures for ankles, wrists, and shoulders. ImagineHealth will make certain that everything before and after your surgery is planned out for you and your family, including elevating your recovery to a rejuvenating holiday.

How Much More Affordable Are Joint Replacement Surgeries in Thailand?

Costs can vary from hospital to hospital. A conservative estimate would be that elective surgeries generally cost anywhere from 40-50% less, and joint replacement surgeries specifically allow for even greater savings. This is because the most complex, and therefore expensive, surgeries have the widest cost gap between a top-tier Western hospital and its Thai equivalent. The bottom line is that you will save significantly on joint replacement surgery in Thailand. Get in touch to learn more.

The following therapies are some of the main pillars of Functional Medicine.

Detoxification is a way to reset your body chemistry so that your physical systems can perform more properly. Once a healthy, all-natural ‘detox’ program has been completed, you will have something approximating a ‘clean slate’ on which you and your physician can conduct therapies that protect you from illness and disease long term.
Functional Medicine can help you reduce chronic inflammation and restore balance to your body’s natural defense mechanisms. Even though inflammation is a way for your body to remove harmful stimuli like bacteria, when it stays too long it can work against you and cause insomnia, fatigue, anxiety, depression, and a host of gastrointestinal disorders.
Mounting research reveals the intricate connection between an unbalanced microbiome and chronic illnesses. These ‘diseases of the gut’ include inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Type 2 diabetes, liver disease, heart disease, and even certain forms of cancer – all from digestive tract inflammation! Don’t let a troubled gut undermine your quality of life.
You may have heard recently that ‘Mitochondria’ are the powerhouse of your cells. This is true, in that they are responsible for producing much of your body’s fuel. And while they are quite resilient, they can become overworked by a process called ‘oxidative stress’ which is another type of system imbalance that can be reversed by Functional Medicine.
We should be able to live our everyday lives in harmony with what our biology predicts, but many of us struggle to find a balance. This manifests in chronic inflammation, extreme fatigue, and poor mood regulation – all of which can be brought under control with the right diagnostic testing and a functional approach to taking control of your health.
So much can be said about the causes of anxiety and depression, but one thing that is often overlooked is the correlation between physical health and mental health. If you are suffering from symptoms of depression and you recognize that you do not take care of your body in an age-appropriate manner, then an integrative Functional Medicine program in Thailand could be just what the doctor ordered! Imagine receiving relaxing therapies derived from Traditional Chinese Medicine, Traditional Thai Medicine, acupuncture, massage, meditation, a proper wake/exercise/sleep regimen, and a detoxifying nutrition program for 10-14 days, accompanied by the gentle murmur of the sea in a quiet, pristine, beachside retreat in Thailand. ImagineHealth can facilitate all that for you, and more.

If you are considering Regenerative Medicine, talk about all the benefits and risks with your healthcare provider.

Research for the different applications of Regenerative Medicine is promising and rapidly growing. Unfortunately, Regenerative Medicine is considered investigational and has not been officially approved by the Thai FDA for most uses, just like in most other countries around the world. However, Thai physicians can prescribe and administer Regenerative Medicine if they believe it’s in the patient’s best interest and the treatment is safe. But, lack of approval means that Regenerative Medicine may not be covered by insurance.
