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
