Cost of various surgeries in the U.S. 2019

At a cost of over 170 thousand U.S. dollars, heart valve replacements were among the most expensive surgeries in the U.S. as of 2019. Other surgeries that cost over 100 thousand U.S. dollars at that time included bypass surgery and spinal fusion surgery. However, these prices are not complete because they do not include airfare travel or lodging costs for the patient (and companion). On the other hand, there might be variations due to factors like type of hospital, doctor’s experience, accreditation, currency exchange rates, etc.

Higher health care costs in the U.S.

Increasing health care costs in the U.S are driven by many things, but the increased use of technology is a strong driver of rising health care costs. The electrosurgical segment of the surgical instrument market has grown in recent years and is expected to continue to grow. Other forms of medical technology are also on the rise, such as forms of digital health, electronic medical records and diagnostics, to name a few. The U.S. digital health market has grown and is expected to see significant gains in the coming years.

Heart surgeries

Some of the most frequent operations performed in the U.S. include cesarean sections, arthroplasty of the knee and percutaneous coronary angioplasty. The cost of heart bypass surgeries in the U.S. was significantly higher than the cost of bypass surgeries in other countries around the world. It is projected that the cost of treating coronary heart disease will exceed the cost of treating many other cardiovascular diseases. The cost increase is clearly seen in the increase in surgical treatment prices. Since 2005, the cost of a coronary angioplasty surgical treatment in the U.S. has nearly doubled.
