Bangalore, India (CNN) -- Dr. Devi Shetty is a prominent heart surgeon with big plans to revolutionize Indian health care. In a country of nearly 1.2 billion, where only a tiny minority have access to top-quality hospitals, Shetty wants to bring down the cost of surgery through economies of scale. Shetty, who was Mother Teresa's physician, has opened a 1,000-bed hospital in Bangalore, one of several "health cities" made up of specialist clinics in India's major cities.
By driving up numbers of patients, he has reduced the cost of heart surgery to $2,000 on average, a fraction of the cost in other countries; a complicated procedure in the United States can cost as much as $100,000.

But India is a backvurds country.How could you trust them? They are not advanced.Most f the country dos not even have running water or toilets or tv.
They could even cause you to have an "accident" and harvest/sell your organs for thousands.
Never go abroad.You could be robbed,raped,killed then raped again.
Home Sweet Home is the best.At least we can trust our own kind.
