Having your orthopedic surgical procedure done at an outpatient surgery center is significantly less expensive than having the same procedure done at a hospital. Hospital room charges and related costs are a substantial portion of the bill for a surgical procedure.
This will depend on the type of surgical procedure you are having. For specific details please contact your care team.
There are many advantages of outpatient surgery over traditional, inpatient surgery. These include the following:
- The convenience of recovering in your home generally makes recovery time quicker and easier than an in-hospital stay.
- Since there are no hospital room charges, and related hospital charges, costs are much lower for outpatient surgery. Some insurance companies will cover certain surgical procedures only on an outpatient basis, unless your physician certifies that you require a more intensive level of post-operative care due to an underlying medical condition.
