Numerous Thai Hospitals Have Earned Prestigious JCI Accreditation

And the first to meet Joint Commission International standards in the whole of Asia was Bangkok’s celebrated Bumrungrad International Hospital, meaning it was the first Asian facility to pass muster in over 350 international standards on their rigorous checklist.

Arthroscopic Knee Surgery

The word 'arthr-' means joint and the word 'scopy' means viewing, making knee arthroscopy a procedure to view the knee joint. During this procedure, a small camera is inserted through a thin wire into the knee joint. This is inserted through small incisions made in the knee. Upon viewing the knee joint, the surgeon makes repairs to the damaged portions of the knee.

This surgery is performed under anesthesia. This is most often an outpatient surgery and the patients can go home the same day. Patients are given medications for pain after surgery and rehabilitation exercises are recommended. The recovery after the surgery depends on the extent of repair done in the joint.
