Now, you can enjoy the complete solution for overweight. First time in Thailand; Vejthani Hospital Gastroenterology and Hepatology Center is proud to introduce our newest procedure for weight loss “Spatz 3 Adjustable Ballon”. We are very proud that Vejthani Hospital is the only hospital in Thailand who does Intra-Gastric Balloon. Without major surgery, now your dreams of having a slim body can be possible. Our world famous Doctors are very confident in providing the necessary care and treatment for you. Vejthani Hospital Management bound to ensure that our Gastrointestinal staff is providing quality care and assistance for our patients. Our Doctors are globally competent in terms of proficiency, knowledge and practice. Spatz 3 Adjustable Balloon System What is the procedure? The purpose of the balloon is to give you a feeling of fullness, which naturally makes you eat less and lose weight. Gastric balloons are inserted under sedation which takes 15- 30 minutes. It is a relatively minor procedure. Undergoing Gastric Balloon procedure is a day surgery, but we require our patient to stay for at least 1-2 days to make sure that the patient does not have any complications after insertion of the balloon. During the procedure a soft adjustable balloon is inserted into the stomach through the mouth, using an endoscope (thin, flexible telescope). Saline-filled gastric balloon that rests in the stomach cavity and decreases the appetite by occupying approximately one third of the stomach volume. Spatz 3 adjustable balloon is a tool which helps weight loss and will provide the best result if associated with proper diet and exercise. Benefits of the procedure Weight loss comes in different ways. Some undergo a certain operation, take weight loss medications or go on extreme diet. One benefit of Spatz 3 adjustable balloon is that, it is a non-surgical approach without the need of medication to lose weight. Weight loss also contributes to improvements in obesity-related conditions such as diabetes, hypertension and other medical conditions. Insertion of Gastric balloon does not require any incisions. Risks of the procedure In general, gastric balloon is a very safe procedure. However as with any procedure there are risks involved. Most often complications are moderate: Abdominal Pain Nausea Frequent Vomiting Spontaneous Deflation of the Balloon Gastro-Oesophageal Reflux Gastric Ulcer Oesophagitis Serious complications are rare, these includes: Gastric Perforation Migration of the Balloon leading to an Intestinal Obstruction Oesophageal Incarceration Acute Pancreatits Mortality linked to the operation is 0.06% to 0.1%. Am I a candidate? Candidates for the Gastric Balloon must have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or more. Patient’s who does not accept surgical procedures will be most likely the candidates to receive Gastric Balloon. Person who is highly motivated is also a good candidate. Person who does not have the following conditions can undergo Gastric Balloon: History of Gastric Surgery Digestive Pathology: Large Hiatus Hernias, Active Gastroduodenal Ulcers, Chron’s disease Serious Cognitive or Mental Disorders Alcoholism or Drug Addiction Treatment with Anti-Platelet or Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAID’s) Anticoagulants The use of the Gastric Balloon may assist in reducing weight prior to surgery, therefore reducing the risks associated with surgical procedures on overweight patients. What is required prior to surgery? Prior to getting Gastric Balloon approved and scheduled, we require our patient to schedule an appointment with our Multi-Disciplinary Team, our team are consist of Gastroenterologist, Dietician or Endocrinologist and Intensive Care Anaesthetist. The dietician will educate about the diet changes that will be needed after the surgery. The Anaesthetist will be the one to monitor all major body functions throughout the procedures of inserting and extracting the balloon. Two weeks prior the procedure Physician will advise the patient to take Antacids. Antacids neutralizes the gastric acid. The decision to insert the balloon must be taken after discussion and consultation with the multi-disciplinary team. How much weight will I lose with gastric balloon? The balloon makes it possible to lose between 10 kilograms and 25 kilograms in 1 year. It is also important for the patient to understand that the gastric balloon is a tool to aid weight loss and will provide the best result if associated with proper diet, exercise and a behavior modification program. The amount of weight you lose and maintain will depend on how closely you follow your diet and adopt long-term lifestyle changes. After the insertion of Gastric Balloon After the balloon is inserted, the stomach will have the adaptation of the presence of the newly inserted balloon. At this time patient will likely to experience discomfort, crampy abdominal, nausea or dry reaching and significant fullness or bloating in the upper abdomen. Our Physicians will recommend medications to relieve the symptoms. Antacids is recommended and must be taken continuously for 1 year. Also, there will be a diet that needs to be followed during this period. Consultation for follow-up must be done every 4-6 weeks. If the patient is experiencing severe side effects, it is best to contact Vejthani Hospital. Vejthani Hospital Specialist will do an assessment. FAQ’S What happens if the balloon leaks? Specialist will inject a blue colored saline inside the balloon. If the balloon leaks, you will notice that your urine will be blue. If this happens, you must inform the doctor immediately. He could remove the balloon by endoscopic route (same on how it was inserted). However, if you were not able to inform the Specialist immediately, there is a risk that the completely deflated balloon will migrate into the digestive tract and could create an intestinal obstruction. How is the Intra-Gastric Balloon removed? The Balloon is removed in the same way it was introduced. Removal of the balloon takes about 20-30 minutes another anesthesia. How long is the recovery after the insertion of the balloon? As mentioned above we require our patients who will undergo the procedure to at least stay for 2 days.

  9. Robotic Spinal Surgery at Vejthani Hospital ensures the highest precision and safety in Spinal Surgeries Spinal surgery at Vejthani Hospital is now better than ever! Vejthani Hospital relentlessly thrives on the modern state-of-the-art medical facilities to reinforce its position as ‘King of Bones’. It is in that spirit that we introduce Robotic Spinal Surgery – the latest addition to our full continuum of spinal care – for the very first time among the private hospitals in Asia. Available exclusively at Vejthani Spine Center, it is a boon of modern medical innovations for many with debilitating spinal deformities and impairments. This breakthrough technology in spinal surgery is a USA-FDA approved robot-guided surgical technology based on Mazor Robotics Renaissance® Guidance System that uses a virtual 3D imaging software for pre-operative planning, 3D sync marker system for accurate fixation of surgical screws, and a very small robot to guide surgical tools and implants with an exceptionally high accuracy. This technology ensures 99.70% accuracy in the placement of surgical screws, lower postoperative complication rates, lesser post-operative pain, lower downtime and faster recovery. By transforming freehand surgery to exceptionally precise robotic surgery, Robotic Spinal Surgery ensures consistent results and faster healing. Independent clinical research has shown that Mazor Robotics technology reduced the average length of hospital stay by 27% and complication rates by 48%. Its use can enhance execution and results of a wide range of spinal surgeries including minimally-invasive surgeries, repair of percutaneous degeneration, biopsies, scoliosis surgeries, spinal fusion surgeries and vertebroplasty. Our surgeons perform pre-operative evaluation using this technology to ascertain almost 100% risk-free outcomes. The highly accurate execution of surgical procedure using this technology decreases the length of operation by up to 30%. The major benefits of Robotic Spinal Surgery include: Assurance of the highest safety Highest accuracy and precision Lesser pain and post-operative complications Reduction of chances of paralysis and fatality Achievement of highest surgical success rates Faster recovery and lower downtime Reduction of harmful fluoroscopic exposure Here is a peek at a few of salient features of Robotic Spinal Surgery we are most excited about: Surgeons can plan spinal surgeries with 1.5mm precision with its virtual 3D imaging software that is used to create a pre-operative blueprint, thereby ensuring consistent outcomes. It helps in accurate placement and rigid fixation of pedicle screws in complex spinal surgeries, thereby increasing the rate of correct placement of screws to 99.70%. Its 3D sync marker helps the surgeons in duly matching the locations of spinal screws with the preoperative CT-scan images by taking two fluoroscopic images. Finally, it helps in the guidance of surgical tools and implants at the planned surgical area with a precision of 1.5mm. All in all, Robotic Spinal Surgery tackles the technical challenges of surgical procedures related to spinal repair and reconstruction in such a way that it caters to the individual anatomical needs by making the best pre-operative planning, the highest accuracy in the surgical procedure, and an exceptionally high suppression of pain and complication rates possible.

  15. Are You Really Ready to Exercise!!

    Are You Really Ready to Exercise!! These days, many of us are into taking better care ourselves. Exercise is one of the most popular ways people use to get into and stay in shape. Typically, when people think about starting an exercise program, they are urged to see their Dr for a check up to see if they are ok to start. The typical check up involves blood pressure and perhaps a stress test. If you pass these, you are usually given the ok to proceed. Unfortunately, this is not adequate to check if someone is truly ready to work out. Thousands of people every year are injured from exercise, and most of these injuries are preventable. For example, running injuries are the most common, affecting the knees, ankles, hips, and pelvis. A major factor in these injuries is due to leg and pelvic imbalance. Running on imbalanced legs or pelvis will cause abnormal torsion of the joints resulting in accelerated degeneration and inflammation. This is preventable if checked first by a qualified professional. Lifting weights is also a risk if you spine is not ready for the stress. Even yoga will be more effective and enjoyable if you spine and attached muscles are checked for proper balance and tone before starting. Doctors of Chiropractic are extremely qualified to check your body to make sure you are REALLY ready to exercise, without the risk of injury. That’s why most major Olympic and professional sports teams have chiropractors on staff to help the athletes reach their best performance.... naturally, without drugs. Even Usain Bolt was under chiropractic care! Now you can gain the same benefit as those high achieving athletes by getting yourself, or a friend, checked properly by a Licensed Doctor of Chiropractic. Call today!

  17. What is true health?

    What is true health? If you are the typical person, you might define HEALTH as the absence of pain or sickness. This is what most people think. But, in fact, the real definition of TRUE HEALTH, as defined by the WHO (World Health Organization), is when all physical, mental, and emotional aspects of a person are working together at full capacity and in complete harmony. This means that most of us are not in TRUE optimum health. So what can we do to help. Well, studies have shown that good sleep is one of the foundations of good health and significantly affects longevity. So first start with improving the quantity and quality of your sleep. Several hours of deep sleep are essential to repair cellular damage suffered during your waking hours. This can be achieved by having a more regular life schedule where you go to sleep at a regular time. Also, not eating big meals at night and reducing caffeine intake could help, as well as regular low impact exercises like walking and swimming. Underpinning all of this is having a properly functioning nerve system, since nerves control and coordinate virtually all of your body’s functions. A comfortable and effective way to do this is having your spine biomechanics checked by a Doctor of Chiropractic. Spinal irritation, which may not be symptomatic, can still affect your body’s function. You see, only about 10% of your nerves deal with symptoms like pain. The greater portion, about 90%, deal with body FUNCTION, which directly impacts your overall health. So checking your spine can have great health benefits beyond just getting rid of aches and pains.

  20. Getting divorced in Thailand? Here's what you need to know PHUKET: Panuwat Somrit is a Phuket lawyer specializing in property. He has been practicing law for the past six years. He graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Law from Ramkhamhaeng University. Here he talks about how divorce is regulated in Thailand. In Thailand, it is possible to file for two types of divorce: a Contested Divorce or an Uncontested Divorce. The former tends to be very costly whilst the latter, also known as an Administrative Divorce, is cheaper and less complicated. It is highly recommended that you seek professional legal advice in Thailand before agreeing to sign any documentation with regard to divorce proceedings. There are different types of divorces and each process is different: UNCONTESTED DIVORCE: An uncontested divorce is the cheapest, quickest and therefore most common way to sever a marital contract in Thailand. Thai law states that to file for an uncontested divorce, a mutual agreement to end the marriage is suffice and no further grounds for divorce are required. Both parties must present themselves at the local registrar (known as amphur, amphoe or khet) to apply. CONTESTED DIVORCE: A contested divorce may be filed for if only one party wishes to apply to sever the marital contract. Proceedings will take place in a court of law. Contested divorce proceedings may be served when there are definite grounds for divorce under Thai law. Common grounds for divorce include absenteeism in the marriage that has been detrimental to the relationship, conflict over the custody of children and disputed ownership of property and assets. If these problems cannot be settled in a personal manner, then court proceedings may be taken to end the marriage and make a judgement upon the dispute. Couples whose marriage has been registered in another country but having been working or living in Thailand for some time may also apply for a contested divorce. DIVORCE – THAI & THAI: Most commonly, Thai couples will file for an uncontested divorce in order to avoid any further disputes between themselves and their families. All issues such as child custody, financial support and property rights and ownership are resolved privately without legal assistance. In some cases where an agreement on one of more issues cannot be made, they may seek the assistance of a lawyer to begin proceedings for the drafting of a divorce agreement which then must be registered at the local amphur. DIVORCE – THAI & FOREIGNER: Commerce, globalisation and tourism have all been responsible for a surge in foreign interest in Thailand. With a growing expat population, marriages between Thai nationals and foreigners has become increasingly common. However, as with all marriages, strained relationships for one reason or another can sometimes lead to divorce. In these cases, it is usual for a Thai spouse to suggest an uncontested divorce, as this is the most common form of divorce in Thailand. However, foreigners must be aware that an uncontested divorce is not recognised all in countries, whilst some countries only recognise this form of divorce in special circumstances. Before committing to an uncontested divorce it is recommended that you seek advice prior to proceeding, especially if you plan to get remarried. DIVORCE – FOREIGNER & FOREIGNER: In the case of two foreigners wishing to file for divorce, it is highly recommended that you seek the professional advice of a Thai divorce lawyer before beginning your proceedings. Some countries may not recognise a divorce that has been sanctioned in Thailand and therefore prior research or legal advice may be needed before beginning the process.

  21. Knee Pain: Cause vs Effect

    Knee Pain: Cause vs Effect Knee pain has always been a big problem for human beings, especially as we age. But even younger people can experience achy knees typically from sports and accidents. If you go to the doctor to check your painful knee, and it is not a surgical condition, he will usually give you a prescription for anti inflammatory and pain medication. If this doesn't work he may inject the knee with anti inflammatory drugs. If that doesn't work he may recommend physical therapy. The main focus is on the symptom... not the cause. What they often don't realize is that the cause of the problem might be in the feet, the pelvis, or low back. These areas must be checked as well for proper balance and positioning. A twisted pelvis, for example, can lead to improper muscle tone in the thighs resulting in imbalanced pulling on the knees. Likewise, if the nerves from the low back are irritated, the areas serviced by those nerves, like leg muscle and the knee joint, may become inflamed and painful. Just using pills or injections may not correct the underlying cause of the condition. Doctors of chiropractic are specially trained to examine not only the knee joint itself, but also the feet, pelvis, and low back to see if they are properly balanced and functioning correctly. If you need additional care, we are always ready to refer if indicated. If you had a stone in your shoe, would you take a pill to get rid of the pain? Of course not... you would take off your shoe and get the stone out, right? The same should be true about most health conditions, like knee pain. Take care of the cause and the symptoms will usually disappear too. Call us to see if we can help you! 094-949-9614 or 02-639-7300
  22. Why I do what I do - by Dr Chase, from Thai Chiro People often ask me why I became a Chiropractor. Well, it probably started when I was a child. You see, my father was a Chiropractor and always took care of me and my 5 siblings. We held the record at school for the family with the fewest days off for sickness! True! Then later, while playing American football in high school, I was "speared" from behind and lay on the ground unable to stand up. The team doctor said I would probably need surgery. But after my dad's treatments I was able to return to play in a week! While in university I thought I would follow in the steps of my older sister and brother and become a MD. I studied hard and was accepted at a medical school in Pennsylvania. But my father thought I would make a good Chiropractor and urged me to reconsider. You know, some- times you are too close to something to truly appreciate it. So I studied more about it and the philosophy and approach made perfect sense so I changed direction and went to Palmer Chiropractic College in Iowa. 35 years later I am still happy with my choice as helping people lead a healthier and happier life still gives me great satisfaction. And working here in Bkk for over 11 of those years, I really enjoy meeting and treating people from around the world who are interested in good health naturally. So, if you need a good chiropractic treatment, give us a call. Dr. Chase/Dr Adams. 0949499614 www.thaichiro.com
