How much does a Quadriceps Tendon(s) Surgery Repair Cost?
Great question since I had know idea either at the time I went through my first surgery. I went through my medical files a while back and I came across my old statement from my first surgery repair in 2007. It was interesting to see the differences in cost from my first quadriceps rupture to the bilateral rupture I incurred years later. As you can see from the image below, the first time I had a ‘suture tendon’ repair done it costed $1,572. Now mind you, this was only the cost to repair my tendon. Additionally there were bills for the anesthesiologist, the hospital, and physical therapist.
Having had no insurance during my first injury was costly indeed. I was unemployed at the time and without any medical coverage so I started to stress on the bills that had come my way soon after my surgery. I was advised however, that being in the position I was in I could write a hardship letter to get my medical costs greatly reduced. To my surprise it worked very well.
I am curious to know what other quadders were charged for their surgery repair(s)? I realize the charges will increase every year or so, but I am really interested to know. Drop me a line and let me know.
