Trauma Surgery

Fractured bones and broken bones are the same thing. Fractures can be incomplete (aka greenstick), non-displaced, or minimally, moderately, or severely displaced. Displaced means the bone pieces have moved out of place.

These surgeries include sedation if done in the office and 3 months of routine post-operative care.

Many of these surgeries will be done in an operating room in which case there is an additional $280 OR fee. Rounding on a patient in the hospital is $200 per day.

If done in an operating room, anesthesia will be billed by the anesthesiologist who generally accepts your medical insurance. The hospital or surgery center will also have fees that may be covered or partially covered by your medical insurance.

3 months of routine post-operative care is included.
