What is the cost of the surgery?
Patients are always surprised to learn that most major insurance carriers and Medicare will cover the entire cost of the surgery. For those patients with Medicare insurance and a supplemental plan, there are usually no out of pocket costs for the operation. The actual cost is around $8,000. There are additional costs for the hospital, anesthesia and professional services. Dr Karpman will arrange a fixed cost package for patients who require a cash rate for the operation. The cash price for the entire procedure is approximately $19,000. This price compares very favorably to other centers that offer the penile implant procedure.
