My Surgery

Keep in mind that every situation will certainly be different, and this is only meant to be an estimate. I stayed in the hospital for 3 nights in the ICU and then another 4 on the Pediatric floor. I had two bars put in, had an epidural, and had Physical Therapy come each day.

My final bill was broken down as follows:

  • Pharmacy: $6,266
  • Supplies: $7,902
  • EKG/ECG: $100
  • Room & Board: $13,770
  • Surgery: $22,134
  • Anesthesia: $3,282
  • Lab: $164
  • Radiology: $1,080
  • Physical Therapy: $1,195
  • Pulmonary Function: $555

Total Charges: $56,449
