Frequently Asked Questions


How much will my surgery cost? 

Our patient coordinators can only give an accurate cost after the surgeon has consulted with an individual patient.  Once a diagnosis has been established and an individualized surgical plan has been developed, our patient coordinator can give an exact quote.  You can visit these websites for national averages on surgical fees.
