Keith Smith, MD joins Elliot by phone to discuss free market healthcare. Dr. Smith is the co-founder of the Surgery Center of Oklahoma, which opened in 1997. They do not accept insurance, and they list the cash price for all 250 surgical procedures that they perform on their site, costing as little as 1/6 as much as the same procedure would elsewhere. Elliot and Dr. Smith explore some ways that government regulation and corruption have hurt healthcare and made it almost 100x more expensive over the past 60 years.

The Surgery Center of Oklahoma has a 0% nosocomial infection rate!!

Dr. Smith is also the co-founder of the Free Market Medical Association.
