Dr. Buchwald is Professor Emeritus of Surgery and Biomedical Engineering at the University of Minnesota. He is a veteran, world-renowned metabolic surgeon, author, professor and patient healthcare advocate. His book “Healthcare Upside Down: A Critical Examination of Policy and Practice” was born out of Dr. Buchwald’s observations of the healthcare industry over the last 50 years. In it, he explores how healthcare has been turned upside down to serve the administrators of the system and away from its basic function of offering the best care for patients. More importantly, he discusses solutions for turning our broken healthcare system right-side up to better serve all patients.
