My name is Mike Brennan and 10 years ago I was a self-employed American living in Japan with no health insurance. Medical care is not good in Japan AND I knew it would be absolutely unaffordable to address my unmet medical needs back in the US.
I was told Thailand offered excellent medical care at prices I could afford easily and as a bonus cosmetic surgery in which I was also interested was a bargain. Luckily many hospitals and clinics were available on the Internet so it was easy to find the names and addresses. I remember thinking “I can do this”!
However upon arrival in Bangkok I found that things were not as advertised, at least not as I imagined based on their representations on line, and nobody to help me I could trust or even understand easily. Some were just unacceptable while others provided care to a different standard than I was accustomed. Language was a problem and Thai doctors are uncomfortable with hard questions from prospective patients.
So to proceed I had to start slowly and go step by step. I began cautiously with a complete check up in including dental, medical, blood work, X-rays, you name it I did it. I decided on a hair transplant as my first procedure, did upper and lower eyelids, filler instead of a facelift, a small liposuction and lots of dermatology.

Finally I had my gall bladder removed laparoscpically and completed a knee surgery arthroscopically.
To complete my treatments required multiple trips over the next two years. As I learned my way around the hospitals here I had all my unmet medical needs, addressed by doctors with whom I felt comfortable at prices I could afford easily. Early in this process I realized this was an exciting business opportunity for me as most medical tourists would not have the time nor could they afford unproductive trips.
Therefore ThaiMed offers service, including weight loss surgeries, based on what I would have liked when I first arrived. We are not for everybody as some travelers still think “I can do this” AND maybe you can. BUT why would you? You won’t get a better result and if you come here and don’t use us you will spend more! If you use us I believe in the end you will be glad you did.
