Why Travel to Southeast Asia for Heart Stent Placement

A heart stent placement is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat coronary artery disease and atherosclerosis. The stent, a small metal mesh tube, expands once inside the artery. By doing so, it widens arteries that have narrowed due to plaque. This procedure is generally known as angioplasty. In some cases, it is performed to save a patient’s life after a heart attack. It can also be performed as a preventative procedure to lower a person’s risk of suffering from heart attacks in the future.

Medical tourists looking for high-quality heart stent placement can seek treatment in Singapore, Malaysia, or Thailand where cardiac care is a specialty. These countries have excellent medical infrastructures and offer the best technologies and facilities for the treatment of heart-related conditions. As such, they have earned a great reputation in the field of medical tourism, attracting thousands of international patients every year.

Recognised for their outstanding roles in medical tourism, these Southeast Asian countries are home to many hospitals and specialty clinics that are accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI) and International Standards Organisation (ISO) for their ability to consistently provide world-class treatment.

These hospitals are represented by doctors and surgeons with training in breakthrough laparoscopic and microsurgical technologies. Most of them have earned their degrees and completed fellowship training in the United States and Europe, bringing innovative techniques and advanced technologies to their home countries. Because of this, the treatment provided by these Southeast Asian surgeons is parallel to that offered by western hospitals but at a much lower cost. The cost of such procedure in Southeast Asia is up to 75% cheaper when compared to the United States and Europe.
