A Kate McClymont special report on neurosurgeon Charlie Teo on 60 Minutes

THE PRICE OF HOPE

When it comes to performing highly complicated, often life-or-death brain surgery, Dr Charlie Teo makes a proud boast: he’s the best in the business. In fact, the celebrity neurosurgeon, who is also well known for the exorbitant fees he charges, claims to be so brilliant he’ll operate on patients who have been told there is no hope, that their conditions are terminal.

Teo doesn’t lack confidence and a lot of people love him for it. But in a special report for 60 MINUTES, Kate McClymont, The Sydney Morning Herald’s chief investigative journalist, looks at another side of Charlie Teo. 

McClymont’s 12-month long investigation reveals the dreadful price some of his patients have paid for believing the hype that Teo can perform medical miracles.
