Some years back I knew a guy who needed to have his knees replaced. He spent a long time driving around comparing prices and quality, and he seemed to think that it was best to avoid having anything done in Pattaya as it's so overpriced. He was tossing up between the Bangkok Hospital in Rayong, which I think was around 30% cheaper than the Bangkok Hospital in Pattaya, or one of the hospitals in Sri Racha. I moved then and lost contact with him, so I'm afraid I can't tell you the final decision, but it sounded to me as if it's worth shopping around.

I had a torn meniscus operated on two years ago at Bumrungrad in Bangkok. Dr. Mason was the surgeon. Did a lot of research before choosing this doctor. Very happy with the results so far.

Listen to the referral to Dr, Mason at Bumrungrad...Dr. Panya at Bumrungrad is also recommended. If money is an issue than the Queen Sirikit Hospital in Sattahip has an orthopedic department and it will be much less money and probably ok..depending on the severity of the damage

samitivej, i have been to 3 hospitals now and not confident in any of them. Bumrungrad the surgeon said he knew in Europe the same procedure people were up and walking in 2-3 days but he found 6 weeks was required otherwise the screws in the plate broke and new operation. cant see how in Europe same operation is so much less of a problem and he qouted the times. Considering India, cheaper and better trained from what i read.

********************

I second the above recommendation. Dr. Mason, Thai, was trained in the USA and also worked (I believe at Yale University).I haven't had a knee operaton, but have been to him for my arm, knee, and leg problems. I have heard good things about Dr. Panya also. You certainly want to go to doctors that have a good reputation than going to an "unknown" when it comes to working on your knee or hip.

I had three months ago surgery on my tibia done by Dr. Phanyarith at the Pattaya International Hospital. He is specialized in knee joint replacements and other orthopedic surgery at the legs. Did a great job on me, can walk again three months later after a rather complicated fracture of the tibia.

He is actually working for the Ao Udom Hospital. Try to get a quote there, after all it is the doctor, not the hospital that makes the difference.

I received an artificial knee joint at a German hospital 2.5 years ago, after a motorcycle accident in LOS, where a local hospital messed my knee up, instead of fixing it.

I went through hell, as they also implanted some serious bacteria. If your friend needs such an implant, please make sure to look for the right doctor. Please see live operation:

I had arthroscopic surgery, at the Queen Sirikit hospital in Sattahip, on my L knee for a torn meniscus in 2004.

The doctor, Dr Prachan Banchasuek, who works on staff at Somdej Prapinklao Hosp in BKK, was brought in for the procedure.

He's a Thai orthopedic surgeon and obtained his diplomate degree in Sports Medicine at Johns Hopkins Hosp, in the USA!

Cost for all (surgery, meds, overnight private room, food) was a mere 14,000-Bt!!

Note this was 8-years ago and Sirikit Hosp now charges 50% more for farangs...but is still inexpensive compared to the

Pattaya or BKK farang hospital prices!

I also know of an English golf caddie, who had both knees replaced w/ artificial joint replacements at Sirikit. He's recovered just fine!
