Pneumonia is a serious infection that results to the inflammation of the lung tissue. Although majority of patients suffering from pneumonia easily make full recovery, patients who are already in poor health or who are suffering from other diseases like terminal stages of cancer have increased risk of dying from this condition.
As comprehensive treatments of pneumonia in most western countries are extremely expensive, patients who are in no immediate physical danger may opt to travel to Southeast Asia for diagnosis, treatment, and even post-operative care. This option offers you the following benefits:
Affordable medical care – The main benefit of traveling to Southeast Asia for any medical condition is saving enormous amount of money. From the cost of medication to pulmonologist’s fee to hospital bills, you can easily save as much as 75% in SE.
Award-winning quality care –Patients who travel to Southeast Asia can expect the same quality care they would receive in western countries. This is due to the fact that majority of pulmonologists in the region, particularly those who are practicing in Thailand and Singapore, are educated and trained in some of the best medical schools in the west. In addition, both countries have competitive healthcare system and have access to state-of-the-art medical equipment in their world-class facilities.
No waiting time –Pneumonia is a condition that requires immediate medical attention. When you book an appointment with any Southeast Asian pulmonologist, you are likely to be accommodated the very next day after your arrival or at your earliest convenience.
