The most expensive heart surgery in the country is related to aortic valve replacement and coronary artery bypass grafting. The surgery costs $ 32,000 and is five to 10 times less expensive in the country than abroad, said head of Iranian Society of Atherosclerosis Dr. Masoud Ghasemi.

However, he regretted that "our doctors are receiving far less salary than their counterparts in the region," according to Mehr news agency.
