Cystectomy is a medical term for bladder removal surgery, which is performed as part of a bladder cancer treatment. Typically performed under general anesthesia, the procedure requires a hospital stay for 7-10 days. Although this surgery is available in Indonesia, the limited number of world-class medical hospitals as well as qualified surgeons to perform the procedures pushes patients to consider traveling to first-world countries where they can receive internationally accepted standards of medical care.
If you’re considering doing the same, your best option is Singapore, which is just a few hours flight away from Indonesia. Just like the United States and other western countries, Singapore’s healthcare system is world-class and award-winning. In fact, it is considered the best in the world by Bloomberg. In Singapore, highly qualified surgeons (most of whom studied in Europe and United States) perform this procedure using different techniques including open surgery, laparoscopic technique, or robotic surgery using the most advanced technologies, ensuring satisfactorily results as well as patient’s safety and comfort.
Despite offering the same quality of medical care, surgeons in Singapore charge as much as 75% cheaper when compared to their counterparts in western countries. This allows you to experience world-class health care without spending a fortune.
