How Much Does Minimally Invasive Bunion Surgery Cost?

Minimally Invasive Bunion Surgery Cost

The only treatment for a painful bunion is through surgery, which is covered by most insurance companies. Many patients with health insurance often find that they need to copay or co-insure about 10 to 50% of the bunion treatment cost.

How much does bunion treatment cost?

Each patient is unique and cost can vary depending on the individual and severity of the bunion. Please contact our office for a price range.

The cost of bunion surgery is divided into three components:

  • Facility fees - typically this includes fees for pre-operative testing, supplies, operating room fees, and medications used during the procedure
  • Physician’s fee - This is the amount charged by Dr. K. to perform the procedure and provide any post-operative care
  • Anesthesia services - This amount is billed separately and comprises any expenses incurred when providing pre- and post-operation services

Sometimes you may be required to pay more, like when a second surgical procedure is for additional correction of the big toe, as is the case with Akin Bunionectomy.

Getting your health insurance provider involved

Most insurance providers cover bunion surgery if it is determined to be medically necessary. Of course, this requires proof of pain and/or discomfort. If you have a health insurance plan, it will have a significant impact on the cost of your treatment. For instance, the network rate is typically negotiated between the doctor and your health insurance company, which will affect what you need to pay out-of-pocket.
