We begin this issue with a look at osteoarthritis and its treatment options, focusing on arthroplasty. Arthroplasty is the latest innovation in osteoarthritis technology, and it’s proving to meet patients’ higher expectations for successful outcomes. We also explore the topic of preparing for a triathlon, an increasingly popular sport for those who want to stay in great shape while also challenging their minds and bodies. Additionally, we present you with useful facts about shingles, a common malady affecting the elderly. We have done our best to pack the rest of the magazine with useful, interesting, and timely information regarding your better health.

This issue’s special feature is an interview with a doctor on our medical team who has performed congenital heart disease operations for more than 700 children over the past 13 years under the auspices of the Rak Jai Thai program. Last month, Bumrungrad organized a special campaign, “Against All Odds,” to educate the public about congenital heart disease and heart disorders in children, as well as to encourage people to support the program and its important work.

As always, please e-mail your comments and questions to betterhealth@bumrungrad.com. We look forward to hearing from you. Here’s to wishing you better health.
