Dr Shetty, The Poetics of the Heart
In 2001, this heart surgeon founded » Narayna Hrudalayalaya Hospital » in Bangalore et introduces a unique concept : the chain production surgery. 38 surgeons operate on an average of three patients a day in each 25 operating room. Thanks to this organisation, an operation costs at least 50 times cheaper than it would be in a « normal » occidental hospital.
Another unique concept is that everybody pays only what they can afford. This allows the less fortunate to access life-saving surgeries that they would only dream of if not for this man.
