The Barefoot Surgeon — Ali Gripper & Dr Sanduk Ruit in conv.

Like his mentor and friend, Dr Fred Hollows, Dr Sanduk Ruit passionately believes that high-quality eyesight is a birthright. Over the past 3 decades, he has personally restored the sight of more than 120,000 people, using a revolutionary, inexpensive surgery he developed himself.

Many are too poor to travel to a hospital or clinic, so Dr. Ruit takes his mobile surgeries to them – to some of the most remote villages in the world.

Ali Gripper, author of The Barefoot Surgeon, joins  Dr Sanduk Ruit in conversation to share his extraordinary journey from a boy born in a tiny Himalayan town with no school, to one of the world’s most respected ophthalmologists.
