: My father is a resident of Ontario and is awaiting knee replacement surgery. He has been waiting a long time and as an alternative we would like to consider the option of having the surgery done in the USA.
: Can anyone give me a ball park idea of what this may cost?
I live in Virginia. I had my left knee replaced last year. The hardware alone (hospital billed price) was just over $15,000. Altogether they billed my insurance company about $32,000. These costs vary and you can shop around. Give several hospitals a call and I'm sure they'll be glad to tell you what to expect.
