Spine fusion at Chiang Mai RAM Hospital...


Recommended Posts

Hi Folks! 

                    I am considering getting a L-5/S-1 spine fusion done at Chiang Mai RAM. I currently have a L-2 through L-5 fusion but it has proved to be too much for my S-1 to handle. (such is the nature of the beast)

  I must have it done at Chiang Mai Ram due to the fact that I must go to a hospital that offers the US Veterans Administrations FMP (Foreign Medical Program). This way I do not have to come up with the money in advance to pay for it. I know Chiang Mai Bangkok Hospital has the FMP but they have changed their requirements and want 20% of the surgery up front. Also I refuse to go there any longer due to the fact of their handlings of the FMP program and it's director there.

  Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of any spine surgeons* at Chiang Mai Ram? 

 (*as a foot note I could possibly get the FMP to cover any spine surgeon in the Chiang Mai area no matter what hospital.)

       Thank you for any feedback!
