The term “medical tourism” echoes a safe and beneficial alternative to those patients who have faced the problem of long waiting lists and expensive medical treatments back home. Malaysia has been attracting medical tourists from all over the world with its modern medical facilities and competitive medical treatment fees.
Ensuring quality health care :
Malaysia boasts of several state-of-the-art hospitals that have an impressive array of sophisticated diagnosis, therapeutic and in-patient facilities. The hospitals house well trained staff and doctors who aid you in recovery from your ailment and ensure a safe and healthy journey back home. The Malaysian Society for Quality and Health (MSHQ) and MS ISO 9002 accredit hospitals thus ensuring the quality of medical service. Also, all private medical hospitals must be approved and licensed by the Ministry of health.
The Malaysian government has recently extended visa for health tourists from a period of thirty days to six months. All that the tourists have to do to procure visa is provide important papers including letters from your doctor.
Low cost on treatments:
The hospitals in Malaysia offer quality treatment which comes at a low price tag. For instance, a cardiac bypass surgery would cost around USD6000-USD7000 and when you combine the treatment with rejuvenating spa treatments, the speed of recovery is sure to hasten. A large number of medical tourists visit Malaysia each year to meet their health treatment needs including cardiac surgery, in vitro fertilization or a host of dental and cosmetic treatments.
Malaysia is seen as convenient option for elective surgery since the hospitals offer quick medical service and do not process you through long waiting lists which is a common feature of medical service in the US, UK.
