Mohs procedure is a surgical technique of treating skin cancer. It is the most widely used method for removing basal and squamous cell carcinomas due to its impressive success rates.
Having skin cancer can be frightening, and patients understandably want only the highest standards of care. For many Indonesians, this means travelling outside of their country where major technological advancements in skin cancer treatment are available. Aside from Western countries, you also have the option to travel to Southeast Asian countries such as Malaysia, Thailand, and Singapore where significant advancements in cancer care are also widely available. This option offers you the following benefits:
Affordability - Hospitals in Southeast Asian countries are an attractive alternative to Western hospitals because the cost of surgery and associated procedures (such as diagnostics) can be as much as 75% cheaper. And since these countries are closer to Indonesia, the associated costs, such as accommodation and airfare, are also substantially cheaper.
International standards of care -Many hospitals in Southeast Asia are accredited by the International Standards Organisation (ISO) and Joint Commission International (JCI). This signifies that the hospitals have the required technologies, facilities, advanced skills, and expertise to deliver international standards of care.
Western-trained surgeons - Many doctors and surgeons practicing in Southeast Asia received training at some of the most prestigious cancer treatment facilities in the West. Some had even completed advanced fellowship programmes under the mentorship of world-renowned and highly respected surgeons. As such, they are adept in performing the surgical procedure using up-to-date techniques and the same state-of-the-art medical equipment used in Western hospitals to deliver the best possible treatment outcomes.
Exceptional experience - At Southeast Asian hospitals, medical teams focus not just on enhancing patient care and safety but also providing patients with exceptional experience.
