Surgical Treatment of Pathology

These surgeries include sedation if done in the office.

Benign lesions are things that are not cancerous.

Single layer closure means sutures (stitches) are only placed in the surface layer, either the skin or the gums.

Multiple layer closure means stitches are placed under the surface and in the skin or gums.

Some of these surgeries will be done in the hospital in which case anesthesia will be billed by the anesthesiologist who generally accepts your medical insurance.

Currently there is a $25 PPE fee added to these surgeries if we do them in our office.

Excision of a benign lesion, simple:  $440

Includes single layer closure.

Excision of a benign lesion, intermediate:  $800

May require multiple layer closure or wide undermining of tissue.

Excision of a benign lesion, complex:  $1,400

Requires rotational flaps or other complex closure.

Marsupialization of a cyst or ranula:  $680

The cyst or ranula is surgically opened then sewn open.  It is left open to heal and close on its own. 

Enucleation or simple resection of a benign bony lesion:  $650

Additional fees for complicated closures such as sinus opening.  For example, if removing a benign bony lesions leaves a hole into the sinus then an additional complex sinus closure would be billed.

Intermediate or complex resection of a benign bony lesion:  $3,000

Additional fees for complicated closures.

Resection of a soft tissue cancerous lesion, simple:  $1,200

Includes single layer closure.

Resection of a soft tissue cancerous lesion, intermediate:  $3,200

Resection of a soft tissue cancerous lesion, complex:  $4,500

Resection of a cancerous lesion in bone or requiring bone resection:  $5,800
