Founder Of North American Surgery Invited To Testify To Committees Of Republic & Democratic Congressmen

Vancouver, BC

Rick Baker, founder of North American Surgery, Inc. has been invited by “Conservatives for Patient’s Rights” to travel to Washington, D.C. on June 3rd, 2009 to testify to committees of Republican & Democratic congressmen. In their rush to implement a national healthcare policy, the U.S. government is proposing a single payer system similar to Canada’s. A single payer system (Canada and North Korea are the only current examples) has never been shown to work. Indeed, the close to 900,000 Canadians currently waiting in long queues for medical care, are testament themselves, to the dysfunctionality of the single payer system.

Baker will tell the U.S. lawmakers that should they adopt the Canadian single payer model, more Canadians than ever will inevitably die while waiting for care. At present, Timely Medical Alternatives is able to triage patients to sources of immediate care in the U.S. (Canada’s other healthcare system). “If the U.S. adopts the Canadian system” states Baker “ where will we send our clients who are in need of life saving surgery?”

In addition to addressing the congressional committees, Baker will speak at a press briefing at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.

About Us

For the last four years we have been facilitating surgical procedures for clients wishing to access the favorable pricing which we have negotiated with hospitals and clinics across the country.


North American Surgery Inc. is able to access reasonably priced surgical procedures of all types in U.S. based facilities.  Our clients pay a small fraction of the standard prices charged by most U.S. hospitals.  Typically the prices we have negotiated are comparable to the costs associated with off-shore surgery in places such as India, Thailand or Mexico.


The role of our firm is to act as a facilitator, brining our clients together with private medical services and clinics which can provide the needed services and / or procedures in a timely manner. Once arrangements have been made to the mutual satisfaction of our client and their physician, we have no ongoing involvement in the doctor-patient relationship.
