Over the recent years, Singapore has been significantly investing in its medical tourism industry, setting up cutting-edge healthcare facilities and further improving its medical infrastructure. The country also heavily invests in its doctors and surgeons, with the majority trained in top medical institutions in the United States and Europe. This greatly helps in raising the country’s quality of medical care to a first-world level. As a culmination of the government’s efforts, the country is now widely regarded as one of the top medical destinations in Southeast Asia.
Thanks to Singapore’s world-class surgical technologies, surgery is one of the country’s strongest points, and this is why those seeking surgical treatment for various conditions such as cartilage repair should strongly consider Singapore as their medical destination. Although quite common, cartilage damage causes a lot of pain and limits the range of movement, affecting quality of life. Due to the significant role of the cartilage in the movement of the joints, the surgery must be performed with precision and a high level of control to prevent further damage. The combination of western-trained surgeons and the country’s state-of-the-art equipment helps to achieve this through procedures such as allograft osteochondral transplantation or autologous chondrocyte implantation.
The best part is that while the quality of treatment and service is comparable to those offered in the United States and Europe, costs are up to 70% lower in Singapore, making it the more ideal destination for medical travelers, including Indonesians, who are seeking high quality but affordable cartilage repair procedures.
