Or you could put the patient/victim in stasis while the family attempts to pay for the surgery. If they can't raise the money in the agreed upon time, off life support they go to whatever their end may be. I've seen that basic story in a sci-fi show of some sort... maybe the 'new' Outer Limits or something like that. They took a woman out of stasis some 25 years after the fact, then gave her an enormous bill and demanded she work for them or something to pay it off. Like indentured servitude at the cost of saving your life. Scary, but possible
