my daughters removal surgery before insurance was 15 thousand dollars. keep in mind that medicaid and other insurance has to pay for it if its considered conginital, or was there at birth. its a matter of getting your dr to write it up that way when you go for your referral to a surgeon. also, hospitals offer financial assistance. find out how to apply if you can. we did and it paid for over 75% of the 4 thousand that we owed after insurance. the end bill was only 400! let me know if you need any help. my daughters site is below. you can read her story and see her photos.
