Private surgery and medical treatment in Malaysia


Malaysia’s growing reputation as a preferred health and medical destination sees it welcoming visitors from around the world seeking remedies for a range of medical needs and for cosmetic surgery. 

Malaysia is a land of fascinating extremes, where towering skyscrapers look down upon primitive longhouses and it has some of the best beaches and diving spots in the world.  

Medical tourism in Malaysia is promoted and regulated by the Malaysia Healthcare Travel Council (MHTC), a well funded and resourced government organisation that works closely with the Association of Private Hospitals of Malaysia to offer high quality medical treatment at prices that must, by law, match those charged to domestic patients.  Hospitals registered by the MHTC are required to meet stringent standards set by the Malaysian Society for Quality in Health, which is itself recognised by the International Society for Quality in Healthcare (ISQua), ensuring the highest possible standards of safety and quality of care.

The MHTC is designed to act as a ‘one-stop’ referral point for travellers seeking healthcare in Malaysia, providing detailed information and advice via their website and dedicated call centre, MHTC Careline.  A medical tourism concierge service and lounge at Kuala Lumpur airport ensures that all health tourists arriving in the country are fully supported and cared for, guaranteeing a seamless and stress-free experience.
