Patients from western countries who are suffering from dystonia, a neurological movement disorder, can take advantage of affordable treatment in Southeast Asia. Each country in the region, particularly Thailand, Singapore, South Korea, and Malaysia, have dedicated hospitals and medical facilities that specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of neurological diseases including dystonia.
Medical facilities such as Singapore General Hospital have a dedicated department of neurology that offers evaluation and comprehensive treatment as well as neurophysiological support services.
Why travel to Southeast Asia for dystonia treatment?
Although western countries offer comprehensive treatment for this condition, the cost can be too much for a lot of patients particularly those who are not covered by comprehensive medical insurance. This can easily set you back by at least tens of thousands of dollars. You can take advantage of the same quality care in Southeast Asia, courtesy of western-trained neurologists as well as their highly qualified multi-disciplinary team while saving up to 75% of the total cost. With this amount, you can already be treated in some of the country’s top hospitals that offer five-star accommodation. This ensures not just quality care but also your safety and comfort.
Another reason to go is the non-existent waiting time. Southeast Asia is extremely serious in being recognized as the go-to medical destination for westerners. For this reason, hospitals and medical professionals strive to provide international patients with excellent experience. Part of this is ensuring that they provide immediate medical attention.
