Easily over $15,000.: Assuming the correction is medically necessary much of the cost may be covered by insurance. Total cost will include: surgeon's fee, hospital/surgical center fees, anesthesiologist fee, possible rehab stay, things like walkers, medications, etc. What the price for all this will depend on where you live. Studies show the same care has different costs in different regions or cities.
