The medical profession in India is plagued with various malpractices: poor health care, commissions from needless treatments and tests, exploitative drug companies, forced operations on the poor. In such a scenario, how does one protect oneself and one's family? Also, how does a doctor carry out his functions effectively and honestly?

The answers are deeply entrenched in our political and judicial systems, in the policy-making of the medical fraternity. This book attempts to unearth the interconnectedness between power and knowledge as it plays itself out in medicine and asks the important question: is it possible to be an ethical doctor today?
