Queen's Sikirit Hospital Thailand Built by US Taxpayer

This post from from pattaya-addicts.com Sept 2010: Queen's Sikirit Hospital: the US Taxpayer paid for and BUILT the hospital back in the 1960s.....the Thai King thought it would be a good idea for Thais and so did the US Navy. All part of USA Vietnam expenditures. The next time any one wants to rag on the US.
It would be a good call if you're near Pattaya to grab a bus, taxi, or motorbike and head down there to
suss it out before any emergency befalls them. You basically get to Sattahip, veer left and 10 kms later....yeah, at Queen's Sikirit. All white.
There are short cuts, but I'll let you find them....
UTapao? Yes...US. Udon Thani, Takli, Ubon Ratachani? Yes, all US taxpayer....all bases in which to bomb Vietnam.
All Thai infrastructure was built and paid for by the US taxpayer....The USA was deathly afraid of the Domino Effect and that Thailand would "go Red." Read the history of the "Village Scouts" if at all interested in this topic.
As Noam Chomsky would write about USA & Vietnam: true, USA lost the Vietnam War, but won the REGIONAL War.
Medical in SE Asia?
My fave hospital is Apollo Hospital in Chennai, India.
Google this surgeon:
Dr. Vijay Bose, Apollo Hospital, Chennai, India.
Over 110k articles on the guy. Amazing doc.
I had both my knees replaced by Dr. Bose...$7500 USD per knee, or $15k all in. Two knees in USA would run me $150k.
Fook! Do the math. If I had any US Insurance, my co-pay would be $30k USD.
Bose is also the leading world guy on hip resurfacing. In USA, they opt for an expensive and debilitating hip replacement.
Resurfacing means you walk that day and the hip resurface job is about $6-7k USD.
I met many THAIS in India that flew over to see Dr. Bose. I asked about Bumrungrad? "Paeng mak!"(Too expensive.)
Yeah, my twin knees would've cost me $28k at Bumrungrad in Bangkok
The tough part about going to India? It sucks.
Not the hospital. Not the pre-op, but the post-op. Hotels are hideously expensive.
Ya gotta suss out when you can fly back to Prathet Thai for recovery as DVT (deep vein thrombosis) is a very real post-op maladay.
I'm 60 years old and have done 4 surgeries at Apollo Hospital and saved $325,000 USD over USA hospital prices.
If Goldman Sachs and other robber barons do not sink the USA, the AMA will!
Best orthopod on the planet. Top student

An inguinal hernia can be repaired through open surgery or laparoscopic surgery, according to the National Guideline Clearinghouse[2] . A recent study[3] of more than 1.5 million hernia operations found that the average cost for an open hernia surgery ranged between $4,200 and $6,200.http://health.costhelper.com/hernia-repair.html
How much you can expect to pay out of pocket for hernia repair, including what people paid in 2014. About 70 percent of hernias occur in the groin, which is called an inguinal hernia. An inguinal hernia can...
