    Your heart beats approximately 4,000 times every hour. Every day, your heart may beat over 100,000 times, and in a year over 35 million times. So don’t you think it’s a good idea to take care of it? Don’t you think your heart, and your health, are worth it? Sure we do. However, paying for heart care can literally give someone a heart attack.

    Some of the most common heart care procedures performed today includes balloon angioplasty. The problem is, the procedure costs nearly $60,000. Can you afford that?

    The good news is that countries around the world offer options to cardiac surgery in the U.S. World-renowned cardiac surgeons in countries like Jordan, India, Turkey and Thailand offer not only excellent experience in all forms of heart care and surgeries (including valve replacements and heart transplants) but also the latest technologies in diagnostics and non-invasive cardiac surgical procedures.

    In India, a balloon angioplasty procedure costs around $11,000, while in Singapore or Thailand, you’d pay roughly $13,000. Sure, it’s still expensive, but at least you have options.

    Just know that you have options for heart care specialists and surgeons around the world, and in countries that rank higher in healthcare than the U.S.. When it comes to paying over $100,000 for a multiple valve replacement procedure, it’s smart to look to places like India, where you’ll pay a tenth the cost for the same procedure.

    Different healthcare delivery systems account for the difference, not lack of training, expertise or experience.

    Let’s just do some quick comparisons here in regard to costs for medical care, just to set the stage. First, we’ll start with a list of what certain procedures in the U.S. cost, and then compare costs in other countries. Don’t mistake cheaper costs with sub-standard care or technology. We’re comparing U.S. costs with costs in accredited hospitals or through internationally certified doctors or surgeons.

    U.S.

    Angioplasty (balloon and with stents) – may cost up to $57,000

    Single heart bypass – $15,000 to $20,000+

    Valve replacement – $25,000 per valve

    Hip replacement – $43,000+

     

    India

    Hip replacement – $9,500

    Valve replacement – $9,500 per valve

    Angioplasty – $11,000

    Single heart bypass – $10,000

    This is just a sampling of costs in India, at internationally acclaimed facilities like the BLK Memorial Hospital in New Delhi or the Apollo Victor Hospital in Goa. We haven’t even mentioned lower costs for all types of care in facilities around the globe, from Mexico and South American destinations to those found in Turkey, Croatia, Greece and Switzerland, not to mention Thailand and Singapore.

    Visit Bangpakok 9 International Hospital in Bangkok, Thailand or Florence Nightingale Hospital in Istanbul, Turkey for a sampling of their services and costs. You’ll likely be surprised, as facilities such as these are accredited, with internationally known and respected doctors and surgeons.

    The Madras Joint Replacement Center in Chennai and the Wooridul Spine Hospital in South Korea are just a few of the best hospitals for medical care in specialized fields in the world, and all offering cheaper prices for care than you’d find in the U.S. and other leading
    countries abroad.

    Your heart is the most important organ in your body, so why leave its health to chance? We all know how expensive cardiac
    care and heart surgery is in the U.S. and other countries abroad, but we also know that no one should be denied such care due to their current finances or the limitations of a health insurance policy.

    A variety of heart care and cardiac surgical procedures are available abroad, including:

    • Coronary artery bypass surgery
    • Heart valve replacement surgery
    • Angioplasty
    • Pacemaker procedures
    • Heart transplantation

    Each of these procedures could save your life or the life of a loved one. Unfortunately, and depending on the type of procedure or surgery performed, cardiac surgeries have widely differing price ranges. Cardiac surgeries are the most expensive performed
    in the United States. The cost of angioplasty can range from $3,000 to $7,000, and coronary bypass surgery can cost up to $20,000 for one bypass, more if additional bypasses are required. A heart transplant may cost over $150,000.

    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.

    Where to look for accredited, certified and affordable heart care and surgical procedures? Try the Jordan Hospital in Amman.
    Globally based heart care and cardiac treatment may also be found at the Bangkok Hospital Pattaya in Bangkok, Thailand. Or, contact Memorial Hizmet Hospital in Turkey for valve replacement surgery to coronary angiogram and coronary artery
    bypass.

    You do have options. Access international medical resources such as PlacidWay to find the doctor, surgeon or cardiac care facility that will best meet your needs. After all, you deserve the best in care, no matter where you’re from or where you’re
    going.

    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.

    It’s a shame that the things we need the most are the most expensive. When it comes to life-saving surgical procedures, many people opt out of surgery because they don’t want to bankrupt their families. This just isn’t right. So what can you do? Expert heart surgeons are available around the world, and in countries that rank higher than the U.S. in health care.

    Unfortunately, heart valve replacement or repair in the United States costs an average of $25,000 per valve. Mitral valve replacement may cost around $14,000 to $20,000. When all is said and done, multiple valve replacement surgical procedures may end up costing $100,000.

    But think about this: heart surgery in India charges an average of $9,500 for single-valve replacements and double valve replacements cost around $11,500.

    You can enjoy the benefits of common heart surgeries abroad, such as:

    Angioplasty restores blood flow through the damaged artery.

    Coronary artery bypass surgery bypasses damaged portion of artery above and below an area of blockage.

    Pacemakers help control abnormal heart rhythms. Wires connect the heart with this generator and sense of electrical pulses the help to correct and regulate heart rhythm.

    Heart care and surgery in Singapore at the JCI-accredited National Heart Centre offers some of the best heart care and surgery abroad. Closer to home the best cardiac surgeons in Mexico, such as those attached with Cellteam Biotechnology in Guadalajara, offer affordable heart surgery in Mexico. From Turkey to Jordan, and from Brazil and Argentina to South Korea, Singapore and Thailand, you have cardiac care options that offer the best in quality care.

    One of the first questions that people ask when their considering traveling across borders or to international destinations for medical care is how medical records can be transferred safely and confidentially, and how to coordinate continuity of care between providers. Medical technology today offers a variety of options available to Internet connectivity.

    Today, medically based video conferencing makes it possible to deliver healthcare services to not only those  experiencing limited access to medical services, programs and providers, but to share the caregiving experience as well as diagnostics and opinions between medical providers across  towns, states, and country borders. Your hip replacement in Jordan or your heart valve replacement surgery in Singapore is now safer than ever with the capabilities of direct communication between healthcare providers.

    Computer integrated telephone and video systems are developing in a field of video phone technology that may help to provide seamless care between medical experts, consultants, surgeons and physicians around the world.  Patients will no longer have to carry hard copies of their medical records to foreign primary care providers or worry about translations or misinterpretations due to language.

    Video phones and TeleHealth initiatives enable clinicians, physicians and consultants to directly interact not only with a patient’s primary caregiver, but the patient themselves. Videophone interventions may provide the answer for enhancing an improving accessibility to medical care, treatments and programs not only for individuals living in rural areas, but those requiring specialized diagnostics and treatment options.

    PlacidWay, a growing medical care provider based in Denver, Colorado, seeks to offer international patients global opportunities for quality, patient-centered care, staying on top of medical technology developments that enhance the patient/provider experience, whether you’re traveling to Brazil or Croatia for expert medical care and procedures.

    When it comes to medical tourism, it’s nice to have answers. One of the first thing that crosses the mind of someone who’s interested in obtaining health care abroad is the training, education, and experience of those who will be providing such care.

    Medical tourism is not just about dental procedures, but may range from orthopedic fields to cardiac care, cosmetic and plastic surgery, obesity and weight loss surgery to adult stem cell research and therapy. Medical tourists have ventured to the Middle East, Asia, and South America for heart transplantation, heart valve replacement surgery, and coronary artery bypass surgeries. They have flocked to South America for affordable cosmetic dentistry, bridge work, dental implant surgeries, and affordable dentures.

    Individuals seeking the best in obesity and weight loss surgical procedures have traveled to locations in South America and Central Europe for the best in bariatric surgery, laparoscopic gastric bypass procedures, lap band surgery and sleeve gastrectomy procedures.

    PlacidWay, a medical tourism portal based in Denver, Colorado, offers reliable, up-to-date information regarding popular medical tourism destinations, treatments, procedures, facilities, and the doctors and surgeons who staff them. Pramod Goel, founder and CEO, knows the type of questions people one answered when it comes to their health care, and is dedicated to providing that information.

    After all, we should all have a choice in how, when, and where we receive our medical care. It’s all about choices. Medical tourism is bringing accredited, certified, and affordable world-class medical techniques and procedures into the common Health Care Industry and is the wave of the future, from teeth whitening to stem cell technologies.

    A heart surgery procedure can range from angioplasty to coronary artery bypass to valve replacement to a heart transplant. Where can individuals go for such treatments and heart care? Expert heart surgeons are available around the world, and in countries that rank higher than the U.S. in health care.


    For example, costs for angioplasty procedures in the U.S. costs will depend on type of procedure (balloon or angioplasty with vascular stents). Average costs for such procedures range around $57,000. Medical travelers taking advantage of excellently trained and certified physicians in countries like India, Singapore and Thailand may enjoy huge cost savings. The same procedures in India generally cost around $11,000, while the same procedures cost around $13,000 in Singapore and Thailand.


    For those needing heart valve replacement surgery or cardiac bypass surgery, world-class heart physicians and cardiac specialists offer superlative heart care and treatment as well as procedures that offer state of the art technology and training.


    Cardiac surgery is expensive in the United States. Heart valve replacement or repair in the United States costs an average of $25,000 per valve. Mitral valve replacement may cost around $14,000 to $20,000. Many patients undergoing multiple valve replacement surgical procedures may expect to pay up to $100,000 for such services.

    Medical travelers to the Artemis Health Institute in India enjoy the same quality of service at greater savings, with single valve replacements generally costing around $9,500 and double valve replacements costing around $11,500.

    Take advantage of global opportunities in the 21st century. Expand your horizons, as well as your heart health care by exploring and researching heart surgery abroad.
