You know healthcare in America is getting expensive when...

...more and more Americans are going overseas for surgery.

This story reminds me of a guy I know who, during his wandering-the-earth days, worked as a dental assistant at a private practice in Hungary. The good doctor there treated a lot of patients from Germany, Italy, and other Western European countries. They made the trip to Hungary for the über-cheap (relative to Western Europe) dental care there.

This particular dentist also liked watching war movies while working. I'm not making this up.
