The price of any surgery includes many different costs:
- Pre- and post-operative appointments
- Operating room fees
- Payment for all of the staff involved
- Materials for the surgery
- Physical therapy, if necessary
- Hospital stays, if necessary
- Medication after the surgery
- Malpractice insurance and general office upkeep
Laser back surgery helps to minimize many of these costs. The procedure is short and only usually the procedure is possible in many cases with "twilight" anesthesia (and in some cases general anesthesia is needed depending on assessment) , which helps to keep down the costs associated with the surgery. Since the recovery time is shorter and less strenuous, there is no hospital stay and things like physical therapy and medication aren't needed for as long. Accordingly, patients may be left with a lower copay than would be the case with a more invasive form of back surgery.
Although the cost of more invasive forms of surgery may be higher, when such surgery is necessary, appropriate medical care is worth any cost.
