Abdominal pain usually is no reason for concern; generally, it’s merely a sign of indigestion or gas. On the other hand, a mild stomach ache or sharp abdominal pains/cramps can stem from a variety of more severe causes, ranging from ulcers to gallstones or even liver cancer. How do you know? The team of digestive tract specialists at Vejthani Hospital can tell you.
Vejthani Hospital, the venerable health institution in Bangkok that has been caring for patients from around the world for over 20 years, has now established Hepato Pancreato Biliary Clinic (HPB). Focused on diagnosing and treating disorders of the digestive system, the highly-trained team of HPB specialists employs state-of-the-art technology to ensure optimum patient consultation and care.
Dr Jade Suphapol, one of the team leaders, explains: “Understanding the basic science underlying digestive tract diseases, as well as more effective diagnostic options, means that we can design accurate treatment plans that cure our patients and help them lead normal active lives. While many of the diseases we treat are manageable, they adversely affect our patients’ quality of life. Our goal is not only to use the most effective treatments for each condition but also to advance methodologies for clinical care that improve people’s daily lives.”
Our qualified medical team of gastroenterologists, surgeons, radiologists, anesthesiologists, and skilled nurses specializing in pancreas, liver, and other biliary tract disorders is second to none. We’re a dedicated group committed to accurate diagnoses, scrupulous treatment, and professional rehabilitative care. Indeed, the clinic’s exceptional success rate accounts for its being one of Thailand’s leading liver cancer treatment hospitals.
Liver, pancreas, and biliary tract diseases are major health problems not only in Thailand but worldwide. Some 20% of the more than 300,000 international patients who visit Vejthani Hospital annually suffer from digestive tract ailments, such as hepatoma, cholangiocarcinoma, pancreatic cancer, hepatitis, alcoholic disease, cirrhosis, pancreatitis, gallstones, and liver cancer.
In cases where surgery is needed, modern technology such as endoscopic and laparoscopic surgery are fully utilized, followed by personalized post-operative rehabilitation.
