Biopsies

Biopsies

You may be referred to have a soft tissue or bone lesion biopsied.  A biopsy means we will remove a piece of the lesion and have a pathologist check it under a microscope.  Some small lesions can be completely removed instead of biopsied in which case we would bill you for an excision, not a biopsy.

If you need more surgery once the biopsy results are in, 25% of the biopsy cost is applied toward the final surgery if the final surgery is done within 3 months of the biopsy results.

Biopsies DO include sedation.

Currently there is a $25 PPE fee added to these surgeries.

Our biopsy fees DO NOT include the pathologist’s fees.  Those services are billed by the pathologist to the patient.

  • Biopsy of a soft tissue lesion:  $350
  • Biopsy of a bone lesion:  $500
