    Rethinking surgical care and bringing down its price tag.

    Open-heart surgery: $3,500. Endoscopy: $14. Narayana offers medical care at prices that boggle the American mind. The health care group, which has grown to 24 hospitals (all but one in India), makes treatment affordable in part by being judicious with skilled workers’ time: Senior surgeons swoop in for just the most challenging part of a procedure and so perform roughly four times as many surgeries as a U.S. doctor would. (They also hit quality metrics comparable to those in the U.S.) Narayana sees 2.5 million patients a year; it brought in $409 million in revenue and $9 million in profit in its past fiscal year.
