It’s normal to be a bit nervous before you plan a procedure or surgery because the process is not normally talked about in everyday medicine, and it typically only comes up when people need serious medical intervention. So how do you craft a surgical experience for yourself that isn’t daunting and doesn’t suck? Smith Medical Direct Specialty Care is explained below. 

Why Surgery Can Be Daunting

When a patient commits to surgery it can be a big deal due to all of the factors that are included when the patient starts the process. The fear of the unknown, recovery time, being away from home, the financial impact, and the surgical results are all factors that can create stress.

While anxiety around your surgical procedure can be normal, we do our best to make sure our patients are not worried or focused too heavily on the unknown when it comes to surgery. We want all of our patients to feel safe and secure while feeling armed with knowledge of the procedure that they are undergoing whether that is a traditional open surgery procedure or preoperative preparation. 

Our goal is to have clearly outlined prices and educate our patients on exactly what each stage of surgery looks like, how long recovery time should be expected to last, and the approximate time frame of the procedure. Surgery shouldn’t suck, and at Smith Medical we are taking care to make sure that our patients have the best experience possible. 

Cash-based Surgery at Smith

Smith Medical Surgical Specialty Care focuses on upfront pricing for all of our surgical services, regardless of the type of surgery. It does not represent a vague estimate of what services may cost, but rather an all-inclusive insurance-free price point that includes everything you may need as a patient at Smith Medical. Testing and diagnostics, follow-up appointments, preoperative checkups, anesthesia preoperative appointments, day-of surgical care and postoperative follow-ups are all included in a single price.

Instead of relying on traditional medical insurance, Smith Medical Direct Specialty Care offers self-pay patients direct medical treatment from providers at a reduced cost at cash-based pricing. Insurers no longer require approval for surgical treatments, and deductibles and premiums are eliminated.

Rather than sticking with in-network providers, more patients are seeking out alternative healthcare options due to limited insurance coverage, self-insurance, or a desire to find the best surgeon. There are no hidden fees, unexpected costs, or unpredictable prices at Smith Medical because we have a single price point for all surgical services.

All Different Surgery Options

Smith Medical Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) is a multispecialty facility, offering a range of surgical procedures including, orthopedics and spine; ear, nose, and throat, general surgery, upper and lower extremity procedures, and men’s and women’s health procedures.

Hip surgery is a large part of what we do at Smith Medical. Hip procedures often replace diseased parts of the hip joint that have been causing pain, immobility, and other issues in a patient’s daily life. Hip surgery is a common solution for patients struggling with arthritis of the hip, and other issues, often with a prosthesis implant. 

If you are looking for a particular hip procedure, here are a few that we offer here at our facility: 

Fluoroscopic Hip Injection with Anesthesia: $3,040

Bone Marrow Biopsy: $6,330

Hip Arthroplasty (Replacement): $17,579

Bilateral Hip Decompression: $16,275

Unilateral Hip Decompression: $11,455

Gluteus Medius Tendon Repair: $6,165

We understand that the current healthcare model prevents patients from getting the care they need when they need it. Our goal is to bypass the traditional hangups that come with surgical procedures such as insurance approvals, cost barriers, hidden fees, and lack of quality patient care. Smith Medical is proud to introduce patient-driven healthcare led by our board-certified physicians and informed patient insights.
