Acute and chronic sinusitis are conditions caused by the inflammation and swelling of the sinuses. These conditions are not only painful, but they can also drain the strength out of anyone who has them. The treatment for these conditions involves widening the nasal passageways through a minimally invasive surgical procedure called Functional Endoscopic Sinus Surgery (FESS).
Although the procedure has a high rate of success, not every ENT surgeon in Indonesia has the qualifications and necessary surgical equipment to perform it. If you’re having trouble finding this type of surgical procedure in your country, you may consider medical tourism. But before you book your ticket to the United States or other western countries, know that high-quality FESS is also widely available in Singapore, which is just a few hours flight away from Indonesia.
Singapore has many highly qualified surgeons and the country is well known for its ability to provide high-quality medical care, which is comparable to that in the US. The country, which healthcare system was ranked first by Bloomberg, is home to some of the most modern medical facilities that are equipped with state-of-the-art surgical tools and equipment. Meanwhile, medical professionals who are practicing here have years of solid experience, are accredited to serve medical travelers, and most have received extensive training in western countries such as USA and Europe.
Best of all, the rates for medical procedures in Singapore are much cheaper than in the US. Procedures such as FESS are up to 75% more affordable compared to most western countries. This is one of the reasons why every year, thousands of Westerners travel to Singapore; this allows them to receive top-notch medical assistance without spending a fortune.
