Cardiovascular treatments reduce the symptoms or eliminate over 60 conditions that primarily affect the blood vessels or heart, including angina, coronary artery disease, heart attack, stroke, high blood pressure, congestive heart failure, atrial fibrillation and others. These conditions are serious and often life-threatening, but many patients cannot afford the treatments that may save their lives. For instance, a heart bypass surgery may cost as much as $200,000 in the United States.
The high costs of health care have led many cardiovascular patients to seek treatments abroad, where they can receive high quality care at a reduced cost. While cardiovascular treatments are often prohibitively expensive in Western countries, they can be obtained for as little as $3,000 to $10,000 in accredited hospitals in other countries around the world.
