My Personal Experience with Dr. Shetty’s Healthcare Mission: An $800 Heart Surgery

I spent a few weeks this summer creating a documentary of the work of Dr. Devi Shetty. One of the most memorable moments of this experience was when I talked with Dr. Shetty himself while he was performing a heart operation on an 18-month-old boy. It was an enlightening and amazing time, where I fully learned why Dr. Shetty deserves the title bestowed on him by the WSJ, the “Henry Ford of healthcare.” His ultimate goal is to reduce the cost of heart surgery from $3,000 to $800 by evaluating each cost component. He has opened hospitals all across the world offering low-cost, high-quality care. Could this model work for the U.S.? It’s a wonderful thing to hope for.
