Is Laser Spine Surgery Really Worth The Cost

No matter how much you need a certain medical treatment, cost is likely to come into consideration at some point. This is especially true if you're considering a cutting-edge treatment like laser spine surgery. Below, we'll explore what to expect in terms of laser spine surgery cost, and how that affects the choice of treatment.

Cost of Surgery

Laser spine surgery, like all surgeries in modern America, does cost a considerable amount of money. The surgery includes a range of costs, including operating room fees, the anesthesiologist, the medications, and the laser. However, since the procedure is relatively quick and there is no need for a hospital stay, it may be less expensive than open spine surgery.

Managing the Cost

The cost of laser spine surgery should be covered by your insurance, as long as your doctor is recommending the surgery as treatment. If you're not sure, you can contact your insurance to determine whether or not they'll cover it. 

Insurance coverages varies considerably based on your plan. If your copay or deductible is large, you may need to use financing to manage your spine surgery cost. There are a number of financing options available. Between insurance and financing, the majority of people who need laser spine surgery are able to afford it.

Approach to Care

In cases where laser spine surgery is necessary, it is more than worth the cost. Treating your spine issue can help you save money on health care costs later; it ca also help boost your productivity and quality of life. 

Yet there's no denying that surgery of any sort is sometimes a significant investment, which is one reason why laser spine surgery is only recommended in cases where non-surgical treatments have been or will be ineffective. Non-invasive treatments like physical therapy and medication are preferable whenever they are appropriate.

Only a doctor can determine which treatment is best for you, based on your symptoms, test results, and medical history. To schedule a consultation about whether or not laser spine surgery is right for you, please click below and enter your information or call the Datta Endoscopic Back Surgery and Pain Center at (347)-380-9138.
