It’s extremely common for patients to have questions and concerns if they have been recommended to undergo hip surgery. This is especially true regarding the cost of the procedure and other financial considerations. Because this is such a critical factor in the decision-making process, Phoenix Spine & Joint believes in providing clear information about cost so you can keep your focus on more important things, like finding relief.
We’re proud to work closely with most insurance providers that have out-of-network benefits. It’s important to highlight, however, that coverage varies from person to person and everyone’s health history and the particular procedure they are undergoing can affect the outcome. This is why we welcome you to contact us to help you learn more about your cost considerations with minimally invasive hip surgery.
OUR APPROACH TO PATIENT-CENTERED CARE
Along the full spectrum of care, from beginning to end, we believe in keeping your needs at the absolute center of treatment. We even offer a free second opinion for patients who have already been told by another doctor that surgical intervention is needed. Our commitment is to be there with you every step of the way to help you learn more about you, your pain and your insurance, and provide you with the information you need to make a decision.
When trying to determine the appropriate cost of any procedure, you should remember to account for the costs that could result from avoiding or delaying the procedure. One regret shared by so many patients who have found relief from hip surgery is that they did not receive treatment earlier. To stress the importance of these factors, we’re sharing the following overview created by our team.
AVOIDING HIP SURGERY HAS MANY HIDDEN COSTS
Delaying or avoiding surgery can have a wide range of costs that can be easy to overlook, including quality of life and reduced income. Specific hidden costs can include:
- Job performance issues — Dealing with hip pain can mean decreased mobility that results in lost days of work. In turn, this means reduced income and a negative effect on job performance that may also impact career advancement.
- Higher conservative treatment costs — People who don’t receive surgery for a hip condition still require care in the form of potentially costly therapies such as massage, prescription medication, physical therapy and acupuncture. The ongoing cost of this can be considerable, especially when you consider the progressive nature of many hip conditions, such as arthritis or osteoporosis.
- Diminished quality of life — Although harder to tabulate, pain and reduced functionality can negatively affect relationships and leisure time. Avoiding surgery when it has been recommended as the best course of action can result in years of reduced quality of life.
