Medical Tourism


Singapore is known as one of the safest countries in the world. This is true in both social and medical scenarios. Therefore, medical tourists can be assured about receiving the highest quality of treatment in a safe environment. Singapore is also a multi-racial and multi-ethnic country that welcomes people of different cultures and countries warmly. Ultimately, the combination of excellent healthcare services, a safe and reliable infrastructure and a welcoming community makes for a unique blend that gives patients peace of mind. Finally, owing to technological advancements and excellent infrastructure, the country is able to cater to a wide variety of medical needs – from mainstream medicine to alternative medicine and from complex surgeries to aesthetic and beauty-related treatments.


Complex procedures like renal transplants, multiple key-hole surgeries and organ transplants are some of specialised treatments offered in Singapore. According to Singapore Tourism Board (STB), international patients come to Singapore each year for a whole range of medical care from basic health screening and wellness services to high-end specialist care and surgical procedures such as cardiology, neurology, obsterics and gynaecology, oncology, ophthalmology, organ transplantation, orthopaedics and paediatrics.

Singapore also boasts of a strong research and development culture. The island-state is actively working to create new cures especially in the field of regenerative medicine. Regenerative medicine is about repairing or replacing damaged tissues and organs. Recent active medical research is focusing on new therapies where stem cells help the body to repair itself.


Plastic surgery and cosmetic dermatology, along with dental surgery, is fast becoming popular among medical tourists. Due to new medical marvels, people can now achieve their desired features through cosmetic surgeries and other beauty treatments. Singapore has several good clinics offering a wide variety of treatments like hair removal, rhinoplasty, liposuction and breast augmentation, which are very popular among visitors. Some clinics also offer treatments for acne, eczema, scars, skin growths, psoriasis and birthmark and mole removal.

Whether the problems are medical or aesthetic, Singapore’s flourishing medical industry offers a myriad of treatments and services. As aesthetic treatments are major life-changing decisions, one should take note of the doctors’ qualifications and certifications. This will ensure that you are in good hands as you embark on your chosen procedure.
