TOP SPECIALTIES OF SAMITIVEJ CHINATOWN HOSPITAL Samitivej Chinatown Hospital, even though an all-in-one healthcare department, has some specialties which make it stand out. The specialties of the Samitivej Chinatown Hospital include: • RETINAL DISEASES The most common cause of blindness after Cataract is Retinal Diseases. These diseases comprise a group of distinct pathologies, which may develop in an otherwise normal human being. Retinal Diseases cause a rapid deterioration of the eyesight, and if early intervention is not made, the person may lose their eyesight permanently. Therefore, it is recommended that whenever any sudden change in the eyesight is felt, an urgent appointment with the ophthalmologist must be made. The ophthalmologists at the Samitivej Chinatown Hospital have been trained to treat such emergencies on a priority basis to save the eyesight of the person. • BREAST SURGERY Breast Diseases are an important and also common presentation in women of childbearing and postmenopausal age. Breast Diseases include several other diseases, some of which are small, harmless, and benign conditions, whereas others are malignant, cancerous conditions that should be operated on, and treated to ensure the survival of the patient. At the Samitivej Chinatown Hospital, there are several general surgeons and breast specialists who know when to make the needed intervention and perform their surgeries in such a way that patient survival is the only thing that matters. This is one of the reasons why there is a high success rate of operations performed at this hospital. • TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT The knee joints are one of the most important joints of our body. It is because of these joints that we are smoothly able to move from one place to the other. However, the knee joints are also considered to be one of the most vulnerable joints of our body. They get subjected to wear-and-tear as a result of age-related changes. Some of the knee conditions may require a total knee replacement to make sure that the patient’s mobility is not disabled and that the patient can lead their life with full independence, without having to compromise on any of their daily-life activities. Samitivej Chinatown Hospital is a modern and advanced hospital that has been serving thousands of patients. The patients feel very comfortable in their inhospitable Chinese-culture inspired hospital. • LASIK EYE SURGERY Gone by are the days when eye-glasses were the only solution to achieve a bright, 20/20 vision. With the development of medical science, we are now able to witness the creation of such facilities that make the impossible seem possible. One of such technologies is the LASIK. LASIK is a minor procedure that is done on the lens of the eye to make it adapted for the eyesight that it is unable to accommodate. It is typically a painless procedure with promising results. At the Samitivej Chinatown Hospital, only the best ophthalmologists perform this surgery to ensure a quick recovery and beneficial results. Being located in one of the busiest tourist hubs of Thailand, the Samitivej Chinatown Hospital is also one of the most visited hospitals by tourists.
