If you’re suffering from blocked or narrowed blood vessels, undergoing peripheral artery angioplasty and stenting is a must. This is a medical procedure performed to remove fatty deposit build-up inside the arteries to restore normal blood supply to your legs. Due to the sensitivity of the procedure, you may want to have this performed in a first-world country where you can benefit from cutting-edge technologies and the vast experience of internationally-trained cardiologists who have the technical know-how in performing the most advanced and safest surgical techniques.
However, before you book your flight to the United States, know that your options include your neighboring country, Singapore, which is the most progressive country in Southeast Asia. Just like the United States, Singapore also has world-class medical facilities that are fully equipped with the most advanced technologies in the field of cardiology. The country also boasts a long list of board-certified cardiologists, most of whom have graduated in the west, with some pioneering cutting-edge surgical techniques that are now practiced all over the world.
Despite receiving the same high standards of medical care offered in western countries, traveling to Singapore lets you save thousands of dollars. Cardiac treatments including peripheral artery angioplasty and stenting are up to 75% cheaper in Singapore when compared to western countries. Also, as Singapore is closer to Indonesia, you’ll also save tons on airfare and accommodation.
