Singapore, the most developed country in Southeast Asia, has become a medical tourism hub not just for westerners but also for Asians. In this country, which boasts superior healthcare system, cancer and cardiac treatment is the specialty. By many standards, the city-state is one of the best options when undergoing procedures such as Transcatheter Aortic Valve Implantation (TAVI).
The majority of high-end and state-run hospitals in Singapore have their own extensive cardiology department that are fully equipped to efficiently diagnose, treat, and manage a host of heart diseases. Procedures such as TAVI are performed by board-certified cardiologists, many of whom have graduated from top universities in the United States and European countries. With their impressive training and educational background, plus their access to cutting-edge cardiac equipment, these cardiologists are able to perform the procedure while minimizing complications and delivering impressive outcomes. Also, as the country is aggressively promoting medical tourism, the government continuously invests heavily in its medical infrastructure ensuring that medical tourists will not have to wait too long to receive treatment. Exceptional experience is also guaranteed, thanks to the friendly, compassionate, and highly-trained medical staff.
Although TAVI is more expensive in Singapore when compared to Indonesia, patients who wish to experience first-class treatment can save by going to the city-state instead of traveling to other first-world countries such as the United States. The same level of medical care can be provided in Singapore but the costs of the procedure are up to 75% cheaper.
