DIY grinders / biohackers, like Rich Lee, have posited a near-future where surgeries on the black market would be available for about 90% less than the medical establishment cost.
Of course, the black market surgeries would be performed by grinders with no licenses / legal credentials, with equipment created from ripped-off patents.
The question is - do you, the reader, support “black market” medicine? Are you in favor of DIY Bio that creates pharmaceuticals and surgical equipment, and performs complex surgeries on willing customers?
Would go “go under the knife” yourself, at a Grinder Clinic, for an operation that you can’t afford legally, or is not even available?
Like a “brain implant” upgrade, that might cost $100,000+ at an esteemed hospital? But a Dr. Pirate like Rich Lee can provide for a mere $9,999?
