I'm doing an assignment for school that requires me to look up the cost of medical procedures. I've looked everywhere online, and no one seems to know how much it costs. I was wonder if anyone here knows. Any help would be greatly appreciated

Check with some insurance carriers, they will have all those numbers, as they are the ones who usually pay for it.David, a 52 year old pastor, husband and father.

If so.....it really depends on where you get it done, who is doing it and what your insurance is willing to pay for.
As for my surgery to S1/L5............pins, screws, fusion, 4 days/nights in hospital, doc's bill, hospital bill, put you to sleep guy's bill, pharm's bill...........the total bill was $365,904.16.
I payed 20% of that..........glad I had insurance.......lol......to say the least.
I had my surgery at Vandy in TN. six months ago.....
