Hydrocephalus Treatment Cost In Thailand

Whatsapp ChatWhatsApp Us

A condition of the brain where the cerebrospinal fluid is being accumulated abnormally in the brain and ventricles is called hydrocephalus.

This extra fluid tends to put pressure on the brain and nervous system, causing a lot of trouble and symptoms like

  • Headache
  • Large head size
  • Seizures
  • Loss of speech and control

Large head size is seen in infants as their skull bone is not fused.

To treat hydrocephalus, immediate drainage of CSF fluid is arranged by surgically inserting a tube or shunt to drain out the excessive fluid.

This tube is monitored till the symptoms subside and the patient is kept on regular follow-up.

Medicines are given which are diuretic in nature and help in flushing out the excessive fluid.

Hydrocephalus Treatment cost in Thailand is between USD 4950 to USD 6050. Patient has to stay in the hospital for 7 days and outside the hospital for 5 days. The total cost of the treatment depends on the diagnosis and facilities opted by the patient.
