SAVING ON SURGERY
In case you missed it in the New York Times a couple of Sundays ago, this is the story of how much less it costs to have high quality surgery done in places like Mexico and Belgium. Raising the questions: Why don’t foreign hospitals advertise for patients here?

GET HIP – FLY SABENA!
