Listing approximate price of Spinal Fusion Surgery and some related procedures. The prices may change depending upon the centers and condition of the patient.
Scoliosis spine surgery requires tests such as a Radiograph to assess spinal instability, Myelogram, MRI, or CAT scan to identify nerve compression, and EMG to test nerve function. The cost for these tests is generally a part of the package.
Any medicines such as fentanyl, hydromorphone, morphine, oxycodone, oxymorphone, and tramadol given by the doctors or nurses 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.
Generally, you need to spend 2 - 3 days at the hospital. Post the surgery, you will have to take rehabilitation outside the hospital for 2 to 9 months depending on your case, and follow up with the doctor.
When it comes to spinal fusion surgery, you will have to take pain medications for recovery. After the surgery, you will also need to get physical therapy to gain full movement of your shoulder. Anything beyond the surgery is not covered in the package.
Since spinal fusion surgery is a major one, it is covered by health insurance. However, some medications and braces put on after the surgery are not a part of the insurance. It would be beneficial to contact your insurance provider to know the exact benefits.
You can go for alternatives such as intradiscal electrothermal coagulation (or annuloplasty). Other than the traditional spinal fusion treatment, you can also select Dynesys, which is a spinal system that utilizes different stretch materials to stabilize the spine.
