Hernia Cost

Surgery costs vary based on the type of hernia, the technique used, medical risk factors, or any additional complexities. In the medical industry, many hospitals and centers do not provide upfront surgery costs. These costs can be highly variable, even for the same procedure. At the Hernia Center of Southern California, we know the importance of understanding the cost of your procedure. Below are average total costs for hernia surgery in California:

The average cost of one-sided open inguinal hernia surgery performed at an outpatient surgery center in California is $7000.

The average cost of one-sided laparoscopic inguinal hernia surgery performed at an outpatient surgery center in California is $9000. Laparoscopic surgery costs are higher due to increased equipment and time expenses.
