Have you ever looked up the cost of major surgeries in the U.S.? Did you know that any type of heart surgery could cost tens of thousands of dollars? For example, a live-saving heart bypass can cost up to $130,000, with average costs of $15,000 to $30,000 per graft. You have four heart valves. You do the math. However, a single valve replacement procedure in other parts of the world doesn’t cost as much; roughly $10,000 in India, and $18,500 at the National Heart Centre in Singapore. In South Africa, the procedure cost about $12,800.
A heart bypass surgical procedure bypasses or literally allows a surgeon to create a “graft detour” around clogged arteries, past the blockage and reattach to healthy vessels on the other side of the blockage. Coronary artery bypass surgery is also called CABG, which stands for coronary artery bypass graft.
Why are cardiac surgeries cheaper in other countries? Is it because the medical personnel are less trained or experienced? No. Is it because they don’t have the surgical technology or know-how that we do in the U.S.? No. It’s because they utilize different healthcare delivery systems and don’t have to pay outrageous malpractice insurance costs like doctors in the U.S. do.
Where can you go for affordable heart surgery? The Jordan Hospital in Amman, Jordan is an example of the highly trained and experienced heart surgery hospital. Another fine example of global heart care and cardiac treatment may be found atby contacting Costa Rica Medical Tourism and Retirement Services in San Jose, Costa Rica for the best heart transplant in Costa Rica or the Kent Hospital in Izmir, Turkey for valve replacement surgery to coronary angiogram and coronary artery bypass.
