Affordable Heart Surgery in India

Affordable Heart Surgery in India

Dr. Devi Prasad Shetty, a heart surgeon in India, runs a network of for-profit hospitals that perform world-class operations at a small fraction of what they would cost in the U.S. He is driven by his belief that even the most sophisticated surgery should be available to the world’s poorest people, and he says that “if a solution is not affordable, it is not a solution. It’s pointless if we talk about huge developments in cardiac surgery or a brain operation or complex cancer surgery if [the] common man cannot afford it.” Watch this story on our website: http://www.pbs.org/wnet/religionandethics/2015/09/04/september-4-2015-affordable-heart-surgery/26967/ --- Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly http://www.pbs.org/religion
