Hepatic failure is a life-threatening medical condition wherein the liver fails to function properly. In most cases, the condition progresses gradually, sometimes over a period of many years. If treated properly from the onset of the problem, the liver may be able to recover completely or may continue to function properly with the right long-term management plan. Delayed or poor quality care, however, raises the patient’s risk of needing a liver transplant.
Regardless of whether a patient requires early supportive care for mild liver failure or a liver transplant for late-stage hepatic failure, they can obtain the care they require by going to Southeast Asia, a region now known for offering high-quality but affordable medical treatments for both common and complex medical conditions.
Singapore is one of the most prominent medical hotspots in the region. It has long invested in world-class facilities and international training of its doctors and specialists in a bid to improve the scope and quality of its medical services.
Thailand and Malaysia, although relatively new to the medical tourism industry, have introduced a fresh perspective into medical care more aggressively pursuing advanced technology-assisted and minimally invasive medical procedures.
Despite high quality and more advanced treatments, liver transplants and hepatic failure treatments in Southeast Asia remain at an affordable rate. Patients who go to Singapore, Thailand, or Malaysia save up to 70% less than those who go to the US or Canada for treatment. This eliminates one of the major hindrances patients face when seeking care for liver problems and thus play a role in improving overall treatment outcomes for all patients.
