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, which is why we have dedicated this entire page to information regarding hernia surgery pricing.

If you have any questions, or if you wish to schedule a consultation with our board-certified hernia surgeons, please feel free to contact the Hernia Center of Southern California online or by telephone today.

Our friendly staff will determine if we accept your particular policy free of charge to make sure you are covered for hernia surgery prior to treatment. Once authorization is obtained, you will be informed of any copays or deductible limits that must first be reached, and a detailed breakdown of all expenses that are covered by your insurance and those that need to be paid out-of-pocket will be provided to you in writing for your review.

Many other hernia clinics and websites publish a “discount price” on hernia surgery, but after a consultation with the doctor, patients are informed that the total cost will be significantly higher due to problems that are unique to their case. At the Hernia Center of Southern California, we do not have “specials” on the cost of hernia surgery. In all cases, our hernia surgery cost is very competitive with other physicians.

Office consultations are conducted in one of our several office locations throughout Southern California (Pasadena, Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, Pomona, Riverside, Long Beach, Anaheim, and Newport Beach). Insurance companies typically cover the cost of the consultation for those who have healthcare coverage, and patients who are uninsured can be seen for an affordable cash price. During the consultation, you will first be interviewed by a nurse. Afterwards, you will be examined by either Dr. David Albin or Dr. Michael Albin, our hernia specialists. All of our consultations are thorough and never hurried. You will be treated with utmost respect and encouraged to ask whatever questions are necessary to help you make an informed and confident decision about your procedure.
Once the specifics of your treatment are finalized, you will be provided a customized price for your hernia surgery. If you have medical healthcare, at no charge our billing staff will be able to determine whether your insurance coverage is full or partial—and if partial, what your co-pay will be. If you are uninsured, we can discuss payment plans and financing options that can help make your procedure as budget-friendly as possible.
At all times, our staff will inform you of your hernia surgery costs upfront, and there are no hidden fees. Everything will be in writing, for your approval, before your hernia surgery. Avoid disappointment and contact our practice today for an accurate hernia surgery cost quote.
