While the cost for each individual is bound to vary depending on the aforementioned factors, there is no denying that the potential cost savings for medical tourists in Malaysia are enormous.
For instance, an elective procedure in the US like a knee replacement surgery would cost the patient upwards of $30,000. However, opting for the same in Malaysia (using similar quality parts), would cost the patient 40-60% less. This including hospital stay, consultation fee, actual fee of the procedure, and transportation costs to and from Malaysia. Likewise when compared to the UK, the cost in performing the procedure would amount up to 40-60% less – and without any waiting time.
This is primarily as a result of favourable currency exchange rates.
