Paid with a credit card is the same as cash to the IRS. So, all of it, subject to the usual minimums and such.

To add to JR1's answer, you would add the $8K to any other medical expenses you had during the year. The portion of your medical expenses which exceed 7.5% of your AGI is deductible if you itemize.
