Huay Khwang, Thailand (PressExposure) February 23, 2009 -- The knowledge, skills, care and expertise of Bangkok Heart Hospital's director, Dr Kitipan Visudharom, have been recognized and venerated in an international publication. This has raised awareness of the superior standard of doctors at Thai facilities in general, as well as Dr Kitipan's particular skills.
Dr Kitipan was recognized and commended in January 2009's Prestige Magazine, under the title 'On Call for Life'. The long article examines Dr Kitipan's work history, skills, and the achievements of he and his team in the seven years since he took over management of Bangkok Heart Hospital.
The article also reports glowingly on Dr Kitipan's manner, which is typical of Bangkok medical tourism facility staff - "His character is ... disarmingly mellow and soft spoken". The Minnesota Heart Institute, Dr Kitipan's previous work, is written up as a world-class facility, and the miraculous effect of his treatment on patients is recounted.
Dr Kitipan Visudharom returned to Thailand after 30 years of practicing overseas as part of a program to provide 72 free heart operations to needy patients, in honor of the 72nd birthday of Thailand's King. Dr Kitipan received his MD from Siriraj University, then did residency training in the US. He went on to gain a PhD in surgery from the University of Minnesota. He co-founded the Minnesota Heart Institute, a similar center to Bangkok Heart Hospital.
"I would like to see us be able to recruit the best doctors, as many as we can, from here and abroad, continue writing and doing advanced research and some day people will recognize Bangkok Heart Hospital as one of the world's best", says Dr Kitipan.
