Bumrungrad International’s Pulmonary Center also works alongside the Rehabilitation Center in order to improve lung function. This includes therapy before and after surgery to reduce pain and to facilitate individual patient recovery time so that they may be able to regain normal function and return to their normal routines earlier.
