Summary
Our medical systems are broken. Doctors are capable of extraordinary (and expensive) treatments, but they are losing their core focus: actually treating people. In this TEDTalk, doctor and writer Atul Gawande suggests we take a step back and look at new ways to do medicine - with fewer cowboys and more pit crews.
