Videos about Bangkok-Phuket Colorectal Disease Institute

Welcome to Videos about Bangkok-Phuket Colorectal Disease Institute

Here, you can learn more about Bangkok-Phuket Colorectal Disease Institute of Bangkok Hospital Phuket through these informative videos. See and hear our stories, medical technology and our healthcare events include doctor interviews.

Bangkok-Phuket Colorectal Disease Institute

The Bangkok-Phuket Colorectal Disease Institute is the first to have performed laparoscopic colectomy, with the highest volume of laparoscopic colorectal surgery cases in the Andaman region. We are also the first and the highest to perform robotic colorectal surgery in the region. This experience duly testifies to its ever-growing medical expertise in this field.


Interview with Assistant Professor Art Hiranyakas

Bangkok Hospital Phuket opened the brand-new Bangkok-Phuket Colorectal Disease Institute January 2014, led by famous colorectal surgeon Dr. Art Hiranyakas.

The institute provides the best treatment of care for colorectal diseases, which are on the rise because of modern lifestyle and diet: more unhealthy food and red meat, less vegetable. It is equipped with advanced technology: key-hole, laparoscopic surgery and breakthrough 90 million Baht worth Robotic Surgical System –Da Vinci, which leads to easier surgery and better outcome.

Dr. Art recommended colonoscopy that can prevent cancer and pick up early signs for effective treatment and outcome. Let’s experience colonoscopy just around 30 minutes without pain and discomfort at Thailand’s first institute of this kind.


Interview with Assistant Professor Art Hiranyakas

The Bangkok-Phuket Colorectal Disease Institute at Bangkok Hospital Phuket welcomed its first patient within an hour of opening its sliding doors for the first time on January 9.

"We used to perform the surgery and provide the care on the same floor and in the same area which dealt with the other cancers – breast cancer, cervical cancer and prostate cancer - but decided to seperate the area designated for just colo-rectal cancer."

Contained in the Colo-rectal Disease Institute is over B90 million worth of the latest technology and equipment designed to deal with colorectal and anal cancer, hemorrhoids, anal fissure, perianal abscess, fistula-in-ano, inflammatory bowel disease, constipation and bowel incontinence. A much prized piece of equipment – the only one in South Thailand - is the da Vinci Robotic Surgical System which has advantages over traditional open surgery, including greater precision and small incisions.

Dr Art Hiranyakas, the head doctor of the institute meanwhile speaks perfect English, as he studied and worked in the US and is in fact a member of the American Society of Colon and Rectum Surgeons (ASCRS).

Dr Art has been back in Thailand for two years and working as a full time colo-rectal surgeon as soon as he comes back to Bangkok Hospital Phuket. Speaking to The Phuket News he explains the changes he’s seen.

"The cases of colo-rectal disease have gone up dramatically in Thailand with an increase in the uptake of the western diet. In other countries there are more incidences of men than women suffering from colo-rectal diseases, but in Thailand it’s more 50/50."

Although for many, specialising in colo-rectal diseases might seem a strange decision, for Dr Art it was a natural choice.

"To deal with colons is not pleasant," says Dr Art, "but it’s a joy to be able to use and work with the latest technology. I’ve decided to get into this particular field because I’ve always wanted to be a surgeon and I love technology, so the combo of surgery and technology in colo-rectal treatment meant that this was perfect for me."
