These are the 15 Richest Doctors in the World

26 June 2016

These are the richest doctors in the world, and their prices are eye-watering

Doctors – what would we do without them? Die painfully at the age of 26, probably. The richest doctors in the world are worth a fortune between them, with fancy private practices and TV deals to boot.

Getting on their waiting list takes months, and sometimes even years, and they’re surprisingly not all plastic surgeons.

Some are in orthopaedics, cardiology and neurosurgery, using their millions and billions to fund patents, treatments and also probably their massive, massive houses.

So if you’re wealthy, doctor shopping and have some spare cash, these are the richest doctors in the world for your consideration, in everything from neurosurgery to plastic surgery.

15. Dr Sanjay Gupta – Net worth $4.5 million

Gupta was a White House Fellow from 1997-1998, advising Hillary Clinton. He was then made Surgeon General of the United States to President Obama.

In his medical practice, Gupta focuses on spinal surgery and neurosurgery, and has offered his medical support in both Haiti and New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

After Haiti’s 2010 earthquake, Gupta operated on a 12-year-old girl, along with three other surgeons, whilst aboard an aircraft carrier.
