Back surgery may be used to treat a variety of conditions, including a herniated (ruptured/slipped) disk, a narrowing of the spine (spinal stenosis), or a spinal infection, fracture or tumor. Note: Estimates include the total cost of care for back pain that results in surgery (for example, doctor’s visits, medication, physician and facility fees for the surgery itself, and follow-up care). Estimates are shown for practices with orthopedists or neurosurgeons on staff.
Note: The estimates below are based on Medica Choice network contract rates. How were these costs calculated?
