Go out of the Country
I have always needed surgery for my snoring issue...
- 5 Aug 2011
I have always needed surgery for my snoring issue and deviated septum. I got a quote before I left the USA and had decided to wait due to financial constraints. However, I quickly learned while I was teaching in Korea that the price of the surgery and hospital stay was $500 dollars. Comparing that to the average cost around 4.7k, I would say that was a deal.
I highly recommend anyone who needs any major or costly surgery to move to another country or visit temporarily. Even the price of a plane ticket and surgery is cheaper than what they charge in the USA.
On top of that, the health system here is much better. It's also regulated by the government, so hospitals can't charge you an arm and a leg.
The doctors almost always speak English. I could have gotten the surgery the very next day! Food was included in my hospital stay. I was only in the hospital for two days.
