Hernia Surgery Cost
What Causes a Hernia?
A hernia is a condition where a weakness in the abdominal wall allows the protrusion of fat and intestine, causing a bulge to be felt. The two most common hernias that require surgery are those in the groin (inguinal hernia), and those through the belly button (umbilical hernia). Each of these hernias is easily diagnosed by a bulge that can be felt or–in the case of large hernias– be seen. Occasionally, inguinal hernias can become large enough that they extend into the scrotum.
Hernia repairs Are A Routine Operation
Hernia repair is one of the most common operations performed in this country. Each year, more than 700,000 patients in the United States undergo hernia surgery, and our hernia center has performed several thousand of these hernia operations for patients from across the county.
What’s The Average Cost of a Hernia Surgery?
Many of these hernia operations are done at hospitals, where the fees are very high. In fact, the average hospital bill for a routine hernia operation is $5,800 and that doesn’t include the hernia doctors’ bills. Many of our patients have been told that the cost at their local hospitals can be over $10,000!!
The high costs of the hernia surgery are then passed on to the insurance companies. If you are uninsured, or have a high deductible, then you end up with a large bill. In addition, hospitals and doctors usually charge uninsured patients much higher fees than the insurance companies pay. It’s not fair, but that’s the way it usually is.
Another problem patients often face after receiving hernia treatment at the hospital is the unexpected bills which come afterwards. It is often impossible to get an accurate estimate of the cost before hernia surgery, and so the true cost of repairing a hernia may not be known until weeks after the hernia operation.
