It has an international reputation, mainly for its forays into sex realignment surgery, and also has excellent orthopaedic and cardiac surgery centres. Most of the surgeons here have received training in the US or Europe and are among the best in Bangkok. Prices are steep at Bumrungrad for Thailand although well below what you’d pay for the same procedures in the West.
