What are the costs involved in Colorectal Surgery?
Your colorectal surgery will usually consist of four costs; a surgery fee, a surgical facility fee, an anesthesia fee and possibly the fees of a pathologist . The surgical fee is paid to your surgeon to perform your procedure, and our rates are based on which type of treatment you require and how complicated the procedure is. The facility fee will need to be paid to the surgical center or hospital to cover the costs of materials and the use of the operating room. The cost of anesthesia will depend on how long your procedure will take, and the fee is paid to the anesthesiologist. Finally, if a specimen is examined under a microscope, a fee will be paid to the pathologist. All of these groups function independently from our surgeons and we may be able to help you understand these costs in advance of your procedure.
