Osgood Schlatter Surgery Cost

multiple components affect the price

What does knee surgery cost?

Cost Components

Why can't your surgeon tell you how much your surgery will cost? Don't they know? The answer is no.

Asking your surgeon how much your surgery will cost is like asking a painter how much it will cost to build a house. The painter knows the cost of his or her own work, but he or she may not know the costs of all of the other trades, like the carpenter, roofer, tile setter, etc.

Plus, medical costs include the additional complexity of insurance coverage (at least for those of us in the U.S.A. Our international friends are laughing :) ).

Multiple Service Providers

Like the construction of a home involves multiple tradespeople, your standard knee surgery involves the work of several service providers. Below are the billing service providers from my Osgood Schlatter disease surgery cost.

  • Orthopedic Surgeon
  • Anesthesiologist
  • Hospital
  • Physical Therapist
