In a time when more and more people are required to pay higher insurance premiums, and deductibles have skyrocketed to $3,000, $5,000 and even $10,000, it has become imperative to look for the most cost-efficient physicians and facilities for your medical and surgical needs — especially when seeking out the least expensive total hip replacement surgery. The days are past when you simply walked into a hospital without any cares or concerns about your insurance coverage.
Every day news stories tell of inflated medical and surgical costs. “Price transparency” has become the popular term used by the medical industry in regards to facilities posting their charges for services. Our government has even recently begun to require hospitals to publish what they are charging patients for their services as part of a program to educate consumers. This allows everyone to see what their local hospital is charging for total hip replacements and compare those charges to other hospitals and facilities locally, nationally, and even internationally. The numbers are staggering! Medical and surgical care is a multi-billion dollar industry while hospital lobbyists push hospital agendas, leaving patients holding the bill.
Optimal Choice When Searching for the Least Expensive Total Hip Replacement Surgery
You do have a choice! We are fortunate to live in times when stand-alone surgical centers are on the cutting edge of affordable healthcare and can provide the same outpatient care you would receive in a hospital (and even better) for a fraction of the price.
First performed in 1960, total hip replacement surgery is one of the most successful operations in all of medicine. Since 1960, improvements in joint surgical techniques and technology have greatly increased the effectiveness of total hip replacements. According to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, more than 285,000 total hip replacements are performed each year in the United States.
Randy Delcore, M.D. and Cedar Orthopaedic Surgery Center are the Southern Utah alternative for your orthopaedic care and surgery. Our surgical center has been performing the least expensive outpatient total hip replacements since 2005, along with any other orthopaedic surgery you may need.
Get the Best and Least Expensive Total Hip Replacement
How can we save you literally thousands of dollars and provide the least expensive total and partial joint replacements? We are not a big business conglomerate like the hospital industry, so we don’t drastically up-charge implants by 30%, 50%, 100% or even 300% like hospitals are able to do. Neither do we charge you for every pill, suture, drape and minute you spend in the operating room. We have negotiated rates with insurance companies because they know we are the least expensive, and our prices cover all those miscellaneous expenses that add thousands to surgical bills.
Getting an Inexpensive Total Hip Replacement Surgery without Insurance
If you do not have insurance, there is still an option to help you get the surgery you need because our cash prices are very competitive, and we provide high-quality care. On average, outpatient surgical procedures at Cedar Orthopaedic Surgery Center cost one-third to one-half the price of a hospital … sometimes even less!
