Abdominoperineal Resection (APR) Surgery cost in Thailand
Before we delve into the cost aspect, let's take a moment to understand what Abdominoperineal Resection (APR) surgery involves. APR is a surgical procedure primarily used to treat patients with rectal cancer or other conditions that require the removal of the anus, rectum, and part of the sigmoid colon. This procedure is often recommended when tumors are located too low in the rectum for sphincter-saving surgery to be feasible.
APR surgery involves two main steps:
1. Abdominal Surgery: During this step, the surgeon makes an incision in the abdomen to remove the affected portion of the rectum, sigmoid colon, and nearby lymph nodes. The remaining colon is then brought out through an opening in the abdominal wall, known as a colostomy.
2. Perineal Surgery: In the second step, the surgeon removes the anus and creates a permanent colostomy. The colostomy allows waste to pass out of the body through a stoma, which is a surgically created opening on the abdomen.
APR surgery is a major procedure that requires careful planning, skilled surgeons, and post-operative care to ensure successful recovery. Now, let's explore how Thailand has emerged as a favorable destination for patients seeking affordable APR surgery.
According to recent data, the average cost of Abdominoperineal Resection (APR) Surgery in Thailand is approximately $8,000, which is significantly lower than the average cost in other countries such as the United States or Australia.
