Gallbladder disease can lead to significant discomfort and pain in the abdomen.

How Much Does A Gallbladder Surgery Cost in Singapore?
According to MOH fee guidelines, a gallbladder surgery in Singapore can range from $1500 – $22,000.
The cost of a gallbladder surgery may vary depending on factors such as the medical facility, the complexity of the procedure and the individual’s medical insurance coverage.
The choice between a public and private medical facility can affect the cost of a gallbladder surgery. Public hospitals include subsidies for Singapore Citizens and the overall cost will be lower compared to a private hospital. However, getting an appointment at a public hospital may be a longer process. For a more personalised and faster process, you can make an appointment with your specialist of choice at a private hospital instead.
Another factor that affects the cost is the complexity of the surgery. If the patient has added complications, which require additional procedures, the cost will increase.
