Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy (ESWL) is a medical procedure that uses shock waves to break down kidney stones so they can be removed from the body through the normal flow of urine. Although this outpatient procedure is available in Indonesia, patients who seek the highest standard of medical care may opt to travel to another country to take advantage of their impressive health care system.
Aside from obvious choices such as the United States and other western countries, Singapore is also one of your great options particularly because it’s closer to Indonesia, saving you thousands of dollars on airfare and accommodation alone. The country provides high-quality medical care at a fraction of what it would cost in the US, which is one of the reasons why even some Westerners prefer to travel to Singapore instead of having the procedure done in the US.
However, lower cost is not the only reason why medical travelers flock to Singapore. Other benefits include little to no waiting time (as medical travelers are given priority), access to highly qualified surgeons (most of whom have received training in the US and Europe), and having the opportunity to enjoy Singapore’s signature hospitality. Medical travelers will also have access to Singapore’s world-class medical facilities that are fully equipped with high-tech technologies and are known to offer minimally invasive yet highly effective techniques in performing certain procedures such as Extracorporeal Shock Wave Lithotripsy. This minimizes the pain during the procedure and significantly reduces recovery time so you can go back to Indonesia sooner. Best of all, you’ll be able to save up to 75% of the cost when compared to going to other western countries for this particular procedure.
