Surgery costs for cholesteatoma

OK i know this all depends on insurance and deductible. But i do not have Insurance. I was wondering if anyone here has had this surgery done, and about what it costs?

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.

I had the surgery done 7 months ago. I had insurance but I think the bill was about $15,000. It was a two hour surgery and I went home about 30 min after I woke up.
