About the Doctor / Professional
Dr. Withawin Kesornsak is a spinal surgeon based in Bangkok, Thailand. His priority in treating spinal conditions is always to find the least invasive way for the best outcomes in each individual. He is not only an expert in minimally invasive spinal surgeries, but he is also an expert in non-surgical pain intervention as well. When surgery becomes necessary, he always uses the most advanced technologies such as endoscope, 3D navigator or surgical robot to maximize safety while minimizing the risks and recovery time for all patients.
Dr. Kesornsak also has a very keen interest in the academic field. He is one of the founding members of the Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery Club of Thailand (MISSCOT); a non-profit organization, whose prime objective is to spread the knowledge of minimally invasive (MIS) techniques to spinal surgeons throughout Thailand. As an internationally-recognized expert in endoscopic spine surgery, he has been a regular faculty member together with Dr. Verapan Kuansongtham and Prof. Sebastian Ruetten for endoscopic workshops in Germany and Thailand for almost 10 years.
In his free time, Dr. Kesornsak enjoys listening to various kinds of music as well as playing musical instruments such as the saxophone and guitar too. He is an avid reader and enjoys works about astrophysics as well as Harry Potter.View Contact Details
