Fees and Payment Arrangements

Multiple other services may be involved when a procedure is performed at the Hip Surgery Center of Excellence, and these additional costs are factored into the total cost of care. The Hip Surgery Center of Excellence charges an initial facility fee per procedure performed at our outpatient surgery center. This facility fee that does not include additional fees for your surgeon, anesthesiologist, consulting physician or any laboratory work that is required. This list of additional fees is not exhaustive, and may vary by procedure.

Patients are responsible for all payments covering their procedure. If you currently have an insurance plan, the Hip Surgery Center of Excellence requires that you pay your estimated deductible and co-payments prior to your procedure.

Advantages of Outpatient Surgery

For patients considering any type of procedure, both cost and quality of care are important factors to consider. The Hip Surgery Center of Excellence offers high-quality, individualized patient care from the safety and comfort of our outpatient surgical center.

Our unique structure, team of expert physicians, and advanced technology all allow us to perform procedures in an outpatient setting that would have previously required a lengthy, disruptive, inpatient hospital stay. Inpatient hospital stays can be notoriously expensive, so we find that many patients prefer our comparable or even less expensive outpatient services.

Because the Hip Surgery Center of Excellence is an elective, non-emergency surgical facility, our patients typically enjoy timely treatment, a speedy recovery, and reduced risk of infection. In addition, our team of physicians and medical assistants work side by side everyday, promoting cohesion, strengthening communication, increasing efficiency of surgery, and reducing time under anesthesia. For all these reasons, the Hip Surgery Center of Excellence is quickly developing a reputation as the premier outpatient surgical center in Los Angeles.
