More Affordable and Superior Spine Surgery without Waiting

For many, the cost of spine surgery can be too expensive and out of reach. We believe patients should be able to access the medical care they need. Over the last 10 years the Medical Tourism industry has expanded rapidly, with informed patients more confident to look overseas for affordable elective surgery.

“Our mission is to provide the best possible experience and outcome, so you can reclaim the healthy lifestyle you deserve.”

Cost of Spine Surgery in Thailand

Thailand is the Medical Tourism capital of the world. The cost of private hospital spine surgery in Thailand is on average 50-70% less than the same surgery in a western country such as Australia, New Zealand, The Middle East, Canada and the USA.

Thailand is a popular destination for medical tourists, with over 2 Million patients visiting each year for elective surgeries. Billions of Dollars in financial investment from international hospital groups and the Thai Government means travelling spine patients can receive the exact same surgery as in their home country, at a new modern facility like Samitivej Hospital Chinatown or World Medical Hospital, with caring staff and luxury comforts.
Our large private hospitals in Bangkok such as Bumrungrad International, Samitivej Hospital Chinatown and World Medical Hospital are more modern and luxurious than those in developed western countries, even our very own partner hospitals in Germany.

Thailand Spine Specialists

Our Thailand team includes renowned surgeons in expansive modern facilities to ensure our patients receive high quality affordable surgery. Some of our spine centres are even leaders in their field, such as Bumrungrad Hospital’s Full-Spine Endoscopic Training Institute, Dr. Tayard's minimally-invasive surgeries, and Vejthani hospital’s advancements with Robotic Spine Surgery.

Cost of Spine Surgery in Germany

The cost of private hospital spine surgery in Germany starts at around €29,500 Euros for a 16-day Artificial Disc Replacement package. When you consider the reputation and experience of our German surgeons, all the inclusions (incl. most advanced implants available) this is a very reasonable price.

This is usually much less than the cost of private hospital spine surgery in countries like Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Canada and certainly the USA, where spine surgery can easily cost over $100,000+ US Dollars.

German Spine Specialists

Our German Spine Specialists are regarded amongst the world leaders in motion-preserving solutions. Artificial Disc Replacement (ADR) was pioneered in Germany around 40 years ago, and our surgeons only use the newest generation of implants, including the M6 and ESP Discs for ADR, and the TOPS/Nexux system for Total Facet Joint replacement. After leaving hospital our patients start rehabilitation at Europe’s largest rehab centre, while staying in a Marriot hotel located right next door. This is the perfect situation for patients travelling from overseas.

Financing your Spine Surgery Package

Many patients do not have the funds on hand to cover the spine surgery they need. While we do not offer our own financing or payment plans, in the past our patients have found the following solutions:

  • 1Approach their bank for a personal loan
  • 2Enquire with a Medical Financing Company
  • 3Applied for early-release of their superannuation or similar protected savings funds
  • 4Approach family and friends for assistance
  • 5Approach a financial advisor for expert advice

These options enabled many of our patients to afford their surgery overseas. The first step is for us to proceed with an assessment of your case, so our international specialists in Germany and Thailand can recommend the most suitable solutions for your consideration.
