Cedar Orthopaedic Surgery Center



Despite the promises offered by the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010, many people are still paying higher insurance premiums and deductibles. Indeed, those out-of-pocket healthcare costs have skyrocketed to $3,000, $5,000 and even $10,000. As a result, it is imperative to look for the most cost-efficient physicians and facilities for your medical and surgical needs — especially when seeking out the lowest cost of a hip replacement. The days are past when you simply walked into a hospital and handed the receptionist your insurance card with little concern for what you would be paying for your care.

News stories frequently tell of inflated medical and surgical costs. For that reason, “Price transparency” has become a popular term used by the medical industry regarding facilities posting their charges for services online. The United States government has even recently begun requiring hospitals to publish what they are charging patients and insurance for their services as part of a program to educate consumers. This allows everyone to see what their local hospital charges for total hip replacements and compare those charges to other hospitals and facilities locally, nationally, and even internationally. The cost of a hip replacement can be staggering at some hospitals! Medical and surgical care is a multi-billion dollar industry while hospital lobbyists push their agendas, leaving patients holding the bill.

Your Best Choice When Searching for the Lowest Cost of a Hip Replacement

You don’t have to gulp and swallow your local hospital’s charges!  We enjoy the great advantage of living in times when stand-alone surgical centers are on the cutting edge of affordable healthcare.  Those surgery centers 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 then, improvements in total 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 450,000 total hip replacements are performed each year in the United States.

Randy Delcore, M.D. at Cedar Orthopaedic Surgery Center provides the Southern Utah alternative for your orthopaedic care and surgery.  Our surgical center has been performing outpatient hip replacements since 2005 with the cost of  a hip replacement being very competitive.  Not only that, COSC offers very reasonable costs for any other orthopaedic surgery you may need.

How We Offer the Lowest Cost of a Hip Replacement

How can we save you literally thousands of dollars by providing the lowest cost of a hip replacement?   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 do, nor 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.  Additionally, our prices cover all those miscellaneous expenses that add thousands to surgical bills. 

No Insurance? Get The Lowest Cost for a Hip Replacement

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 COSC cost one-third to one-half the price of a hospital … sometimes even less!
