Lumbar disc replacement surgery requires tests such as a complete physical exam, X-rays, an MRI or CT scan, and blood tests. The cost for these tests is generally a part of the package. Additionally, if you are a smoker, will be asked to quit to prepare yourself for the spine surgery.
Any medicines given by the doctor at the hospital are included in the package. When the patient is discharged and has to buy the medication from outside the hospital, it will not be included in the package.
In a lumbar disc replacement surgery, there are discs made out of metal or a mixture of plastic and metal. The material used is either medical-grade cobalt-chromium, titanium alloy, or plastic (polyethylene). Please consult your surgeon to understand which disk design is best suited for you. The all-metal discs are comparatively more expensive than their other variant.
It is a short hospital stay of 1 to 2 nights after getting a lumbar artificial disc replacement surgery. Your doctor and nurses will monitor your pain levels and oversee mobility issues if any. As you leave the hospital, you can start with physical therapy.
For the first few weeks after the surgery, a walker or a cane may be needed to help you walk and aid mobility, which will be an extra expense and not a part of your package. You will also need medicines and physical therapy to gain full movement of your back, which is an additional expense.
Lumbar disc replacement surgery is generally covered by health insurance. However, some medications and aids (cane, walker, etc.) are not a part of the insurance. It would be helpful to contact your insurance provider to know the inclusions and exclusions.
You can go for alternatives such as spinal fusion, which is traditional spine surgery. However, you can also choose non-surgical interventions such as a neurotomy, or a spinal cord stimulator. We suggest you learn about the surgery’s potential risks and benefits.
