Hernia Repair Cost

How Much Does Hernia Repair Cost?

low costWith Insurance: $700-$2,000high costWithout Insurance: $4,000-$11,000

A hernia is a condition that occurs when an internal organ, such as part of the intestine or stomach, bulges through the muscle and skin. Typically hernias appear suddenly, after lifting or straining weak muscles. According to the Cleveland Clinic[1] , about 5 million Americans develop a hernia each year. Surgery is necessary for the hernia to be fully resolved, though some patients can suppress symptoms by using a hernia truss.

Typical costs:

  • About 70 percent of hernias occur in the groin, which is called an inguinal hernia. An inguinal hernia can be repaired through open surgery or laparoscopic surgery, according to the National Guideline Clearinghouse[2] . A recent study[3] of more than 1.5 million hernia operations found that the average cost for an open hernia surgery ranged between $4,200 and $6,200. Those with insurance can expect to pay typical deductibles and coinsurance rates. According to the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey conducted by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the average family will have a $939 deductible to meet each year before their insurance benefits cover procedures. In addition, the survey found that the average coinsurance rate is about 17.9 percent of the bill. This means the average patient would pay between $750 and $1,109 for their hernia surgery.
  • The other common type of hernia is called an umbilical hernia, which occurs in the abdomen. An umbilical hernia can also be repaired through laparoscopic or open surgery, which can cost an individual without insurance between $4,000 and $11,000. The average individual with insurance can expect to pay between $700 and $2,000.
  • Some patients opt to delay surgical treatment of a hernia. In these cases, physicians often recommend the use of a hernia truss. A hernia truss or hernia support pushes the bulging organ back into the body. Hernia supports can cost between $15 and $110.

What should be included:
  • Patients undergoing open surgical treatment of a hernia will have an incision made in the skin, near the site of the hernia. The surgeon will push the bulging organ back into its proper position and then will repair the muscle tear. Patients undergoing laparoscopic surgical treatment of a hernia will have three small incisions made near the site of the hernia. The surgeon will use a camera to view the issues inside the body and small instruments to make repairs to the injured tissue.
  • Patients can expect to spend a few hours at the hospital or outpatient surgery center recovering. In some cases, a longer recovery period is necessary. During the recovery time, patients will have a bed and may receive intravenous fluids. Pain relief will also be provided, either via IV or tablet.
Additional costs:
  • Patients recovering from hernia surgery may be prescribed pain medication when leaving the hospital.
  • Most patients will not need rehabilitation services after hernia surgery, but significant time off from work may be required. According to the National Guideline Clearinghouse[4] , patients undergoing open surgery can return to light clerical work in about two weeks. Patients who work as manual laborers should wait between 21 and 56 days before returning to work, depending upon the intensity of their job. Those undergoing laparoscopic surgery should wait about a week before returning to light clerical work and about two weeks to 28 days before returning to a manual labor position. For many patients, the Family Medical Leave Act[5] will protect them from losing their job during a period of medical leave. However, employers are not required to offer pay beyond accrued vacation and sick leave time during the recovery period. Before the surgery, patients who may require extended medical leave should research the medical leave act and talk to their human resources department about leave options.
  • Many hospitals will provide financial assistance to low-income families and individuals. The level of assistance and income requirements will vary by facility. Be sure to contact the hospital or outpatient facility prior to receiving treatment.
Shopping for hernia repair:
  • A patient's primary care physician will likely refer the patient to a surgeon for a surgical hernia repair. Patients can check a physician's licensure status with their state department of registration. Patients can also make sure their surgeon is board-certified through the American Board of Medical Specialties [6] .
  • For more information about selecting a doctor, the National Institutes of Health [7] offers a free guide online.
  • When shopping for a hernia truss, make sure the system fits and adequately supports the hernia. Many trusses will provide complete relief of symptoms, though they do not cure the hernia. Patient can ask a pharmacist for assistance in determining proper fit.

45 minute surgery . I got to the hospital at 630 in the morning. I did the paperwork and paid the first 900 dollars. I have BCBS insurance . I was home resting by 1030 same morning. Just a few hours at the hospital. Surgery went great. This bills started coming and after all said it cost 23000 dollars. Im not sure how much insurance paid but I maxed out so I paid 3000 my annual deductible . This seem a little much for a 45 minute surgery. Health care cost are out of control and Im not sure where the blame is. People not paying hospitals, aliens not paying and giving a different name to hospitals, people unable to pay bills. Im sure there are factors I am not privy to. I believe that I should have shopped around to different hospitals for a better price. I went with the hospital closest to my house. Great staff , nice hospital support staff I have no complaints with the overall treatment. Maybe you get what you pay. I would tell people 100% I was happy with treatment.

Hsopital charged $323,000 for a 45 min to 1 hour laproscopic surgery on my naval with a mesh implant. Medicare pays and they accepted only $116,000. I had to pay $0 because I have supplemental insurance. Regardless, I was outraged that the hospital feels they can charge that much money. That's the price of a home around here. Does anybody think this is an abuse of the system or am I missing something?

Repair Initial Iniguinal Hernia Surgery

Type of Hernia: Iniguinal HerniaType of Procedure: Double Hernia
Surgeon: Daniel HafenrichterMedical Facility: BJC Healthcare-Mo Baptist
This is a double hernia, medical procedural code #49505. The procedure was completed @ Mo. Baptist Hospital, St Louis, MO 63141. This was on an out-patient basis. The procedure was about one hour and went home, one follow up to the surgeon. Included a new, stated "safe mesh."
I feel that the procedure costs which included the anesthesiologist, all encompassing, was too high. What do you think? ***** They did not send me the bill until October of 2018!!! Fortunately, our carrier paid the lions share. Surgery was on 8/11/2017. I would appreciate your input accordingly, thank you.

Surgeon: Dr Sudeep ShahMedical Facility: Hinduja Hospital
This was for my dad, who is 85. The surgeon was very professional and well-trained and the hospital (with a Short stay private room package was just world class & accounted for most of the $1100, including overnight stay in a fully staffed facility). My dad was able to walk the next day (the local anesthesia numbed his leg so much that he could not walk the same evening. the 3-4" wound is healing OK, except they took off the waterproof bandage in 3 days which caused some local abrasion with his clothing seepage calling for local antibiotics (neomycin powder). I am a US healthcare scientist (not a practicing doctor), and everything I saw in this hospital compared favorably with US hospital facilities. totally shocked at the rates we are paying in this country for such a simple 20-30 minute procedure- I had no idea till we read the other reviews. We paid out of pocket in India since it was a semi-emergency. Could not dream of paying out-of-pocket in the USA at these prices.

Type of Hernia: L-side Igunial HerniaType of Procedure: Outpatient Surgery with Mesh
Surgeon: Dr. Samuel R. HeiserMedical Facility: Riverview Surgery Center
I am confident that I received excellent care for my less than 5 hour stay for surgery and recovery, by a highly skilled physician and team. Grateful for their care.
Having said that I wish I had shopped the service or had some consultation from my insurance about what a fair billing is for this surgery.
It appears that I have blown my entire combined deductible, and now responsible for $6,414 out of my own pocket, a remaining balance of what appears to be more than what some people and their insurance are billed for in total.
Had I been a wiser buyer, I could have reduced my own liability and prevented my insurance company from also paying a price that appears to be on the higher side of the market.

After popping a hernia on vacation I flew home and starting to look around for a surgeon. Since I don't have insurance the quotes were out of sight. Anywhere from 6000 to over 20000. I found Dr Kravitz online. I did a complete background check and found that he had no sanctions or lawsuits pending.
I made my appointment and had my surgery . I was treated like a rock star from everyone. A true professional. More doctors should follow his lead and make surgery affordable.
Recovery is ongoing and successful. I walk a few miles everyday from day one.

Dr. Kravitz was very professional and proficient. I drove 320 miles to his office for the consultation and was operated on the next day. Recovery was not bad at all.
When I see what some have paid for this same operation, I am appalled at our insurance companies for paying out these outrageously bloated prices. If i want Obama care just for me it cost over $800 a month. Now I know why. This makes it very apparent how crooked our health care system is. Sad.
Thank you Dr. Kravitz for being affordable for patients like me.

Large ventral hernia that i walked around with for two years. Cause: returned to work on floor as nurse. Lifting patients (even with help-- 250 pound patients). Incisional hernia. Couldnt stop to get it repaired. Finally repair. What would have been simple hernis repair two years ago was now major surgery. Five days in hospital. Major pain meds. I now have "marshmellow" middle with mesh. Just glad no infection. Had to get it done. It was like having huge basketball removed from abdomen. My advice: dont wait-- hernias should be repaired asap! This is 2016.

I am a contractor and have delt with a inguinal hernia for over 3 years. My Wife found this incredible place in 2015. "NO MESH" Thank God for a Great wife, they use the Disarta method. I walked the beach the next day after surgery and after 1 week I had to be constantly reminded to slow down. I felt so good. Please remember it's surgery so yes there was a small amount of discomfort but nothing compared to 1 day of hernia and truss discomfort I felt with for 3years. These people or so great, pleasant, profesional, and caring. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. No hidden cost. I did not have insurance so my wife and I drove our van 12 hrs got a room From Thurs-Monday at the extended stay inn and had to purchase 2 prescriptions. Total gas, rooms, food,prescriptions and surgery was less then $4,500.
You can email me if you need any information or referance.
Two months now and I feel perfect.

Type of Hernia: Inguinal and UmbilicalType of Procedure: Hernia Repair with mesh
Surgeon: Medical Facility: Logan Regional Hopspital
I had some lower pains in my groin area that led me to the Dr. After several tests it was confirmed I had an obvious umbilical hernia and an inguinal hernia. Total bill came to about $7000. This year marks the most expensive year I've ever had in my 41 years of life for medical expenses. I pay a $500 premium per month on top of these bills. My work pays an additional $500 per month for my premiums as well. Bringing my grand total of medical expenses for this year to $19000. I still have some pains associated with the hernia and mesh. Just a very dull pain in my groin area. Was the surgery worth it? I'm not certain other than the fact that the mess will prevent a life threatening inguinal hernia from happening. I guess if you look at it that way it was worth it. Just so you know. I don't have $7000 just laying around so I've been put on a payment plan. I'm amazed out how much difference there is on this site in costs of the medical procedures.

Hernia Operation in Japan

Type of Hernia: Inguinal HerniaType of Procedure: Mesh
Surgeon: Medical Facility: Social Services Association Obihiro Hosp
I'm a US citizen but I couldn't be happier that my hernia happened while working in Japan. I had a standard surgery (mesh repair) as an in-patient. I stayed for 3 days at the hospital for recovery as well and my total bill before insurance was only 120000 Yen (~$980)! After my work insurance kicked in I only had to pay 5000 yen ($40). It honestly seems that buying a hernia truss, taking a vacation to Japan, finishing up with a surgery and coming home would be a cheaper option than having the surgery done in the United States.

Originally diagnosed as a double hernia. The day of surgery it was determined via laproscopically that only one hernia required repair.

It took approx 2 hours. I have insurance and for the life of me can not justify a total of $33,580.92. It took 5 days of flat on my back rest to be able to even stand and walk.I am out of work for 6 weeks.
