The medical team gave us the best of care and showed professionalism, and at the same time friendly. Even though the result I wanted couldn't be achieved but I really appreciate the support and care I received from Dr. Anna. Bumrungrad International hospital gave us the best of care and professional advice I must say once again. I'm still seeking medical attention for my wife's "Diffuse Cerebral Dysfunction". That's the diagnostics and results we received from Bumrungrad International hospital Bankok! Thank you!

Very bad doctors not friendly look moody all the time especially the doctor who did the scan she never smile, they couldn’t speak English just only word by word, not clear explanation, waited too long more than an hour to get it done, not good service, charged for interpretation 550 baht but the document was already in English not worth to pay for it, cheating not recommended. Go somewhere else if you don’t want to waste of your time and money.

Good evening! In the Severance clinic itself, I liked everything. Everything is very organized. Polite clinic staff. There was one caveat. Nobody told me that preparations for a colonoscopy will be delivered to the hotel. If I hadn’t come to Severance hospital the day before, I’ve found a girl who speaks Russian. She phoned the clinic and explained that the package should wait at the hotel. A. So I would not be prepared on the appointed day. The rest I liked everything. I plan to come to you in a year. Thanks for all !! Добрый вечер! В самой клинике Северанс мне все понравилось. Очень все организовано. Вежливый персонал клиники . Был один нюанс. Мне никто не сообщил что будут доставлены препараты для колоноскопия в отель. Если бы я днём раньше не пришла в госпиталь Северанс где нашла девушку говорящую на русском языке. Она созвонилась с клиникой и объяснила что должна ждать в отеле посылочка. А. Так бы я пришла в назначенный день не подготовленная. Остальное мне все понравилось. Планирую через год к вам. Спасибо за все !!

The stay was as usual with the expectation, I can not say anything about trust, because we just had a survey. I can’t write anything about the ward since we were in the clinic where they were conducting the examination. All medicine is put on stream. But in any case, I am sure that medicine is at a high level. I went through the basic package, I was satisfied with whether or not I can not even say. Пребывание прошло как обычно с ожиданием , о доверии не могу ничего сказать так как у нас было просто обследование . О палате ничего не могу писать так как мы были в клинике где проводят обследование. Вся медицина поставлена на поток . Но в любом случае я уверена что медицина поставлена на высокой уровень. Я проходила базовый пакет довольна осталась или нет не могу даже сказать .

The patient was treated of breast cancer
star star star star star

I have breast cancer and I went through chemotherapy in Moscow. Six sessions have passed. It was very difficult to tolerate these procedures. A doctor in Kazakhstan said that this is enough, it is necessary to switch to tableted chemistry. And Moscow offered to continue doing chemotherapy. Opinions are divided. It was necessary to find a third party. I accidentally found your site on the Internet. Ekaterina Koliko wrote very quickly. The benevolence of Katyusha was immediately arranged towards her. She asked me what I would like to go to. I said that I want to go to the Severance clinic in Korea. Katyusha approved my choice. I sent all the necessary documents and Katyusha quickly redirected everything to the clinic. They began to wait for the invitation. For some reason (and for what I already knew in the clinic), there was no invitation. I am very grateful to Katyusha that she was in touch all the time, supported me, gave me hope. We arrived in Seoul in the morning, we were met by a transfer, brought to the hotel. After lunch, they were already in the clinic, I began to take tests. Constantly with me was one of the translators. Girls translators are great fellows, these are Lida, Olesya, Sofia, Tatyana, Alena. Any question could be addressed, they always prompted. They are professionals. Always with a smile, polite, with enormous patience, and most importantly, they understand that they work with a special audience, with people who did not come to rest. Someone to find out the diagnosis, and someone to do the operation. Thank you so much to the girls. The clinic was impressive. Doctors are professionals. The equipment is super. I got the opinion of a third party, it coincided with the opinion of a doctor from Kazakhstan. I was prescribed a prescription, I bought medicines at the pharmacy and started drinking on arrival home. I also want to write about Darina, who was engaged in transfer (the transfer to the clinic was very convenient and met and carried out), the selection of the hotel was also always in touch, and if I had any questions, she quickly answered them. I want to say that I am very happy for getting to know BOOKIMED, professionals really work there, and most importantly, they are not indifferent people. I am grateful to the Almighty and all who were near me. And the words of the doctor gave me inspiration and inspired great hope, for the sake of these words it was worth a long way to go. Once again, many thanks to all. У меня рак груди и я проходила химию терапию в Москве. Прошла шесть сеансов. Было очень сложно переносить эти процедуры. Врач в Казахстане сказал, что этого достаточно, надо переходить на таблетированную химию. А Москва предлагала продолжить делать химию терапию. Мнения разделились. Надо было, найти третью сторону. Я совершенно случайно в интернете нашла Ваш сайт. Написала, очень быстро откликнулась Екатерина Колико. Доброжелательность Катюши сразу расположили к ней. Она спросила мои пожелания, куда бы я хотела поехать. Я сказала, что хочу в Корею, в клинику Северанс. Катюша одобрила мой выбор. Я отправила все необходимые документы и Катюша очень быстро все перенаправила в клинику. Стали ждать приглашения. По каким то причинам( а по каким я узнала уже в клинике), приглашения не было. Я очень благодарна Катюше, что все время она была на связи, поддерживала меня, вселяла надежду. Приехали в Сеул утром, нас встретил трансфер, привезли в отель. После обеда были уже в клинике, я стала сдавать анализы. Постоянно со мной был кто то из переводчиков. Девочки переводчики большие молодцы, это Лида, Олеся, София, Татьяна, Алена. С любым вопросом можно было обратиться, они всегда подсказывали. Они профессионалы своего дела. Всегда с улыбкой, вежливые, имеющие огромное терпение, а самое главное понимающие, что работают с особой аудиторией, с людьми, которые приехали не на отдых. Кто то, чтобы узнать диагноз, а кто то чтобы сделать операцию. Огромное девочкам спасибо. Клиника впечатлила. Врачи профессионалы. Оборудование супер. Я получила мнение третьей стороны, оно совпало с мнением врача с Казахстана. Мне выписали рецепт, я там же, в аптеке приобрела лекарства и по приезду домой начало пить. Еще хочу написать о Дарине, которая занималась трансфером (трансфер при клинике, очень удобно и встретили и проводили) , подборкой отеля, тоже всегда была на связи, и если у меня возникали какие либо вопросы, она быстро на них отвечала. Я хочу сказать , что очень рада, за знакомство с BOOKIMED, там действительно работают профессионалы, а самое главное не равнодушные люди. Я благодарна Всевышнему и всем кто был со мной рядом. А слова доктора окрылили меня и вселили огромную надежду, ради этих слов стоило проделать такой большой путь. Еще раз огромное всем СПАСИБО.

Мне понравилось клинике Северанс, очень внимательные и квалифицированные врачи, знающие свое дело. Обследование моего ребенка прошли на высшем уровне, но долго , я не ожидала что обследование займет больше 2х недель. Но это не самое главное, главное мы узнали ,что нам помогут в нашем диагнозе, но наследующий год, нас даже записали к врачам на это время следующего года. Спасибо большое международному отделу при клинике Северанс, координаторам и переводчикам! Очень внимательные и доброжелательные девушки! А также огромное спасибо команде Bookimed, что помогли организовать поездку в Корею и именно в эту клинику, не зря! Были трудности, но без трудностей не бывает! И мы с сыном это выдержали, и не зря. За то мы увозим с собой нужную информацию для нас!!!

In general, the clinic as a clinic, a lot of people, everyone is busy. Queues The translator decided the speed of the queue. Everything is fine. They took only consultations with doctors. I can not say on it their level of professionolism, only on treatment ... In general, it’s normal. В целом клиника как клиника, много людей, все заняты. Очереди. Переводчик решал быстроту очереди. Все нормально. Брали только консультации у врачей. Не могу сказать по ней их уровень профессиолизма, только по лечению... В целом нормально.

The level of the clinic is high, qualified doctors. For the second time they were vaccinated both for themselves and the child. Cons: - the indicated coordinator in Istanbul did not answer calls on the day of arrival, nor when we arrived at the clinic, did not call back, I had to explain at the reception (they speak English very weakly at the reception), - the transfer service from the clinic is not very comfortable , the drivers do not speak English, there is no child car seat, the cars are dirty, you have to wait a long time. Уровень клиники высокий, врачи квалифицированные. Уже второй раз делали прививки и себе, и ребёнку. Минусы: - указанный координатор в Стамбуле не отвечал на звонки ни в день прилета, ни когда мы прибыли в клинику, так и не перезвонил, пришлось на ресепшине объясняться (на англ на ресепшине говорят очень слабо), - услуга трансфертов от клиники не очень комфортна, водители не говорят на англ, детского автокресла нет, машины грязные, приходится ждать долго.

I've visited Memorial Sisli Hospital for the VIP check up. Luckily, I've decided to make a booking through bookimed rather than directly as the company helped me later on when I experienced some problems at the hospital. It was very easy to make an appoitment and I'd like to thank Anton for patiently helping me to navigate through different hospitals and selecting the right package. Upon my arrival in Istanbul, bookimed organized a transfer to and from hotel to the hospital though due to the traffic there was some waiting time. Contact persons from Bookimed were always ready to answer any questions and provide support. In regard to the services provided by the hospital, I am generally satisfied with the VIP check up provided. Though following the tests I was referred for additional tests and consultations not covered by the package. I arrived the next day for the results and instead of in person consultation was told by an interpreter that all is well. I was very surprised with such level of services as I was requested to pay for the consultation of a professor a day before and instead received an oral statement from an interpreter. I've asked for a consultation with the professor as has been agreed before, but was told that she has left for the day. I then demanded a refund as I did not obtain a service, i.e. consultation of a professor. The hospital then sent a nurse to tell me that the tests were ok. I was still not satisfied as I was expecting a consultation from the doctor, not the nurse or an interpreter. In addition, as the therapist a day before raised concerns for me and sent me for these additional tests, I really wanted to clarify the situation and ask questions. Unfortunately, the hospital could not provide it as apparently there were no other doctors available in this field. This whole second day was a big disappointment as it seems the hospital staff did not care about helping me once I was done with the VIP check up, they also did not try to find alternative solutions. It felt as a scam, as the day before the doctor sends you for additional tests and then you do not get anything out of these tests - not a consultation. Only after repeated demands I was given a hand written note which said the tests were ok, but it did not look as a proper test results comparable to the ones I did a day before. Considering that additional tests and consultations were not cheap, I requested a refund. It took almost the whole day to obtain a refund, the hospital could no longer provide me with an interpreter neither in Russian nor in English and I felt disappointed. The interpreters who are assigned for check up were busy with other clients and could not attend to my situation. I was left waiting for about 4 hours while the hospital management was making a decision. Finally, with many thanks to an interpreter from Memorial Bahçelievler hospital, I believe her name was Olga, the situation was resolved. Olga showed herself as a professional and a very caring specialist. I managed to obtain my refund. I also appreciate the support bookimed provided throughout the situation. Once I left, there were some other test results that I expected to obtain in the next week. Unfortunately, it again took forever to get these results back and required bookimed to follow up on several occasions with the hospital. I do appreciate Barbara's follow up with me and her following up with the hospital. Overall, I am satisfied with the Check up service, but very dissatisfied with the follow up procedure and lack of consultation. I will not choose this particular hospital for future check ups, as if you're paying you should receive service and not deal with the issues and feel like a scam.

Questions and answers

What is a gastric balloon?

The gastric or intragastric balloon is a short-term medical device aimed to help patients lose excess weight without surgical intervention. It is temporary, but enough effective method to get rid of obesity along with diet and physical activity.

How does gastric balloon in Thailand work?

A soft silicone balloon is inserted into the stomach with the help of an endoscope (tubular instrument passed through the mouth and throat). In the stomach, the balloon is filled with saline occupying the bigger part of the intragastric space. This gives the impression of satiety because the stomach is partially full. As a result, the individual eats less food in one sitting and begins to lose weight.

The balloon is situated in the stomach for 6 months, after which it is removed. It can be inserted for a second time after a break of 2 months. To achieve the maximum effect of this bariatric procedure, the patient needs to keep a diet.

The balloon insertion in Thailand takes an hour. The procedure requires hospitalization — the patient stays in a hospital for a day and then comes back home. 

Who benefits the gastric balloon procedure?

This method is not suitable for people with a very high body mass index (BMI). The recommended BMI for an intragastric balloon procedure starts from 30.

An intragastric balloon can also be used as a preparation for bariatric surgery to reduce the risk of complications. Some weight loss surgeries increase the risk of complications if the patient has severe obesity. In this case, the balloon can reduce excess weight to acceptable standards that allow doctors to perform bariatric surgery with less risk.

The balloon bariatric procedure is especially suitable for people who want to avoid surgery.

What are the main advantages of the gastric balloon method in Thailand?

  • installed through an endoscope without intervention
  • temporary option (6 months)
  • can be reused
  • can be used as preparation for bariatric surgery
  • low risk of complications
  • does not affect the digestive system
  • weight loss is slower than after bariatric surgery.

What are the contraindications for the procedure?

  • inflammatory bowel disease 
  • esophagitis
  • gastric and duodenal ulcers
  • stomach tumors
  • lower gastrointestinal bleeding
  • congenital pyloric stenosis, atresia, and stenosis of the small intestine
  • large hiatal hernia (esophageal opening of the diaphragm)
  • mental disorders
  • alcohol and drug addiction
  • constant intake of aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids, drugs that irritate the stomach, anticoagulants (medications that reduce blood clotting)
  • pregnancy or breastfeeding.

How long is the rehabilitation period after intragastric balloon insertion?

The recovery time takes 3 days. After this period, the patient can return to work. Immediately after the gastric balloon procedure, the patient will need to limit food intake. During the first few days, the diet should consist only of liquid food. In 2 weeks after the procedure, the person can begin to try semi-solid, and then solid food.

The intragastric balloon implies that the patient will change the lifestyle and eating habits to healthier ones. The balloon makes it much easier because it consumes a lot of space in the stomach and reduces the amount of food intake.

The procedure for intragastric balloon installing also involves checks by a surgeon to avoid all sorts of complications.

In 6 months, the balloon will be removed from the stomach in the same way as it was installed. If the patient wants the process to be repeated to achieve a better result, then the balloon can be inserted again after a short break of 2 months.

What are the risks of the gastric balloon?

The intragastric balloon procedure causes fewer complications in contrast with other weight loss surgery methods. The most common among them are:

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • abdominal pain.

What results can you expect after the procedure?

The gastric juice destroys the balloon gradually, so the balloon can be put into the stomach for 6 months, and then it must be taken out. If a patient wants to continue balloon treatment, the procedure will be performed again but only in 2 months.

The procedure's effectiveness depends on the eating habits and the patient’s diet. The gastric balloon in Thailand shows high efficiency in people with not very high BMI, in particular:

  • lose about 20-50 pounds of excess weight
  • decrease body weight by 20%
  • decrease body mass index by 5%.

How much does a gastric balloon cost in Thailand?
