K'Aom, a woman behinds Kamol Cosmetic Hospital.



 

 

The afternoon we finally caught up with Siripen Pansritum and had a chance to ask her about her life and work at Kamol Hospital, she was in the midst of busily preparing work on expanding the hospital's facilities. She was also drawing up an informational outreach for existing and new patients. So, too, was she working directly with her husband, Kamol, to coordinate on plans to make coming to Kamol Hospital in Thailand easier for international patients. In other words, it was just another typical day for Siripen. Working at full speed and creating a vision for the future.

 

Kamol Hospital is one of the world's most renowned centers for cosmetic surgery. It specializes in gender confirmation surgery, with about three out of every four gender confirmation surgery patients undergoing male to female surgery. And it has risen to this pinnacle through no small effort on the part of Sirpen.

 

Jokingly but accurately, Siripen, refers to herself as the R&D part of the hospital. Her husband's skill and talent as a surgeon with innovative ideas, of course, has made the entire operation possible. But as in any true partnership, there is a mutual support system at play, here. It is Siripen who manages the daily behind the scenes operations of the hospital and the newly opened serviced apartments, K Garden, which are the next step in making a patients' stay during their recovery from surgery all the more restful and successful.

 

Look behind the idea that Siripen is Kamol's R&D specialist, however, and you will actually find even more than first meets the eye. Research and Development, in fact, might be too constricting to describe what she does. For this active and idea filled lady is also involved in important decisions involved in design for the hospital, in all its various applications. You might think of her role as R&D2.  For example, it is she who is responsible for the architectural and interior design of the hospital.  Her inspiration for it comes from her frequent travels to Milan. Of all the places she goes with her husband on brief four to five day vacations, it is northern Italy she enjoys the most, because of the region's strong heritage in consumer and manufacturing design. When you first see the hospital, you will understand how she has put her imprint on things. The building itself has the feel of a cool, modern piece of sculpture. With its curving forms and horizontal lines, in fact, it harkens back to the era of Streamline Moderne. And its colors, white stone outlined in magenta, with turquoise windows, suggest a maritime feel, which is also often part of the Streamline Moderne aesthetic.

 

This impulse to create through design doesn't stop with architecture. “I have a passion for design,” she says, “from interior spaces to designing my own clothes.” Siripen also has made it a habit on her visits to Europe and Milan to seek out items for creating her own personal fashion design.  It's more than a hobby or a pastime. It's a genuine artistic and creative outlet she seeks. Searching through the markets of available fabric and other material, she selects not only that which is innovative and striking for the eyes but appealing to touch and feel.

 

Where does this creative streak come from? Everyone has their own gifts, of course. But sometimes your surroundings contribute to your inspiration as well. Siripen, for example, comes from Nan. Located in the far north of Thailand, it is one of the country's most scenic and beautiful provinces. Mountains, mists, and streams give the region a romantic air. For someone growing up amid such a natural garden spot, it must have made it easy for the artistic spirit to thrive.

 

Yet a career comes first. And that meant studying at nearby Chiang Mai University, where the young woman enrolled in classes in science. She graduated with a degree in pharmaceutical studies. Eventually, this path would lead to Bangkok, where she met her husband, then a general practitioner at Chulalongkorn University Hospital. Almost immediately, she “recognized Dr. Kamol's talents and wanted to support him and see him become successful.” In 1992, they were married. At the same time, they started to work together, establishing their pattern of mutual reinforcement, support and cooperation that has lasted right until today. In 2003, they founded their clinic, which today has become a major center for cosmetic surgery in Bangkok.

 

Siripen and Kamol have two children, a son and a daughter. Both are grown now and, as with their parents, both have careers related to medicine. Family life has always been important to the Pansritum family. It is something they believe in and which is ingrained in their culture. And they have taken the principles of that family life and sought to make them part of the organization and structure of the hospital. The medical staff and other physicians form a key part of their hospital family, and patients are treated as extended members of that family as well.

 

Going into the future, Siripen simply wants two things. First, she feels that the hospital must continue to grow and maintain its already high world class standards. That can be achieved through bringing in still more qualified people eager to work as a team to advance the science of gender confirmation surgery. Second, she seeks to further the cause and rights of transgender people to live happy and normal lives just like other people. Siripen believes strongly in the work she and her husband are doing.

 

As for herself, she will sustain the framework she now provides for her husband and his work. They will both continue to work with others across the world, through conferences and panels on transgender surgical techniques. And Siripen will be the ultimate support for Kamol, giving him the opportunity, she believes, “to perfect and achieve excellence in his surgical skills.”
