IV stent percutaneous transcatheter placement is a treatment used for patients with deep venous thrombosis, a condition where blood clots develop inside the vein, resulting in blockage and compromised blood flow. The procedure is performed by vascular surgeons with the goal to remove the clot while minimising damage to the affected vein.
Patients who require this treatment can travel to Southeast Asian countries such as Thailand, Malaysia, and Singapore. These countries offer world-class medical and surgical care that is comparable to the West but not as expensive.
In comparison, Thailand and Malaysia are more affordable. If you travel to these countries, the cost is about 75% cheaper when compared to the West. However, Singapore offers the highest standards of care in the region. Being a developed country, it features some of the best hospitals in the world and the most advanced diagnostic and therapeutic equipment.
By travelling to Southeast Asia for IV stent percutaneous transcatheter placement, you get to enjoy:
- Globally recognised standards of care - Leading standard–setting organisations such as Joint Commission International (JCI) and International Standards Organisation (ISO) accredit a good number of hospitals in countries mentioned above. This accreditation means that the hospitals offer high-quality medical care that meets international standards. This also means that the hospitals enjoy a great reputation for their unparalleled commitment to medical excellence.
- Services of highly-trained vascular surgeons – The success of the procedure is largely dependent on the skills of the surgeon performing it. In Southeast Asia, vascular surgeons who are certified to treat foreign patients go through rigorous credentialing process and years of training. Most have also completed their degrees and/or their advanced specialty training in prestigious medical institutions in the United Kingdom and United States.
- Affordability – There is no need to travel to the West to take advantage of world-class medical services. Southeast Asian hospitals now offer the same quality services for much affordable prices. Enjoy up to 50%-75% savings when you travel to Singapore, Thailand, or Malaysia for this procedure.
