Why You Should Head to Southeast Asia for Knee Problems

Knees are bound to give up at some point usually due to aging or injury. While they can sometimes be treated with medications, some may require a more intensive procedure like surgery.

However, with more than 30 million uninsured individuals in the United States alone, the cost of treatment, which could be up to $40,000, can be too much for a lot of people. If your home country doesn’t offer the service that you need for a price that you can afford, traveling to Southeast Asia could very well be the answer to your problem. Knee treatments including surgeries in the region are up to 75% cheaper when compared to the United States and European countries.

Despite the unbelievably low cost, the quality of treatment in Southeast Asia is basically the same to what is offered in western countries.

Knee surgeries have already become minimally invasive in Southeast Asia. With smaller incisions, operation and recovery times are lessened, and complications are significantly reduced or even avoided. These are achieved because the majority of medical facilities in this region have invested heavily in computer-assisted technologies and are using cutting-edge techniques, which are also practiced in Europe and North America. In the same way, prostheses and medications are the same used in other developed countries and have been scrutinized by the Food and Drug Administration of the respective nations in the region.

Meanwhile, orthopaedic surgeons in the region are to be trusted. Boasting years or even decades of surgical experience, most of them have obtained their diploma and years of training in western countries including the United States. Thus, they can guarantee exceptional results as well as your safety and comfort.
