A months ago I had a successful minimally invasive TLIF on L4-L5 after waiting 10 years. I had a wonderful neurosurgeon.
The problem with this surgery is the Hospital Cost!
Hospitalized for 5 and 1/2 days, and the Bill we received
was enormous: $125,000 just for the hospital cost!!!
My insurance co. does not have a bargaining power, and it merely will pay a small percentage of the total cost.
So will some of you, please, share with me what hospital charges were excluding doctors' costs.
