Cost of Stent planting in India

But Sir one thing is not understandable. Why the stent and cost of treatment is so expensive in India. My elder brother had three arteries blocked. The cost of three stents and treatment including hospitalization for six days came out to be Rs 6.5 lacs and more so he was asked to deposit Rs 4.5 lacs advance before any treatment could be started. How a common man on the road afford it. I am told the stent costs $300 in USA. Is it possible? more

Yes, I read. We may have to go for not only second openion, but also third openion. more  
Further to my comment above, all of you are requested to go through today's front page Times of India report titled, "44% advised surgeries needlessly, finds survey." The report is eye-opening and lends credence to the comments made by members in this forum. more  
Untill unless commission goes away from the system, treatment will remain costly. more  
What is written is correct by my dear colleagues. I was charged Rs. 6.00 Lacs for 3 stents and treatment. All hospitals in India including doctors are making huge money without following athics. In other business, we have cost audits etc. from GoI but nothing done at hospitals at least. We donot know, when GoI will wakeup. more  
Thanks Mohinder ji and Durga ji more
