Question cost of microdiscectomy?

roughly how much would a lumbar miscrodiscectomy (L4-5) cost with no insurance?

Lightbulb Re: cost of microdiscectomy?

Well, since I did end up having this procedure done, I guess I can answer this question for myself and anyone else wondering...

The surgeon and assistant surgeon cost roughly [B]$5,800[/B]
The fees from the surgery center were about [B]$8,000[/B]
The anesthesiologist fees were close to [B]$1,750[/B]

So all totaled almost [B][COLOR="Red"]$15,550[/COLOR][/B].

Though the surgeon is giving me 20% off for paying those fees within 30 days, and the surgery center says they can work with me a bit because I'm self pay. Most places seem to have a financial assistance program.
I think these charges are pretty average, but this particular surgery took place in Montana.
