Re: Surgery costs for cholesteatoma
Short answer, without insurance it can be extremely expensive. I had this surgery done back in 2002, and though I had insurance I did see the final bill which came out to around $15,000 if I remember correctly. Mine was fairly extensive though (5 hours in the OR, and had to stay overnight), so if it's a little less extensive, it may run less. Either way it will not cheap without insurance.
