With more than 20 specialty centres, five operation theatres, 11 ICUs, and eight CCUs, its location on Phuket and its genuine Thai hospitality make it a desirable cosmetic surgery destination option as well. On top of it they can assist patients in many languages such as English, Tagalog, German and Swedish.
