I broke my right humerus a little over a year ago, the first treatment ( hanging cast) did not work apparently. I had the cast on it from May 1st, 2010 to around the end of July or beginning of August 2010. Was told that it in fact had fused . But in Feb 2011, I found out that it had never fused. I have been trying the sarimiento brace plus the exogen bone stimulator. Was told by my orthopedic surgeon that it requires surgery.I am set up to have the surgery on June 15th. Just wondering if anyone knows the ball park amount for this surgery.
This is a question for your surgeon. It depends on where you live, what your surgeon decides to do in the way of reduction and fixation etc. You have to figure in the cost of the hospital facilities, room, surgery suite, anesthesia costs etc. So many variables. Your surgeon should be able to give you a ballpark figure or better yet call his office and ask to speak to the person who does the billing. They should be able to give you a ballpark figure. You can also try calling the member services number on your insurance card and ask but they may not be able to give you a figure without knowing what the surgeon plans to do.
