In brief: $5500

As dr. Coats has indicated, it does depend on many factors, and the amounts that get paid are often much less than are charged.
In the U.S., cash rates are now around $5500, which should include facility fee, surgeon fee, anesthesia fee, and an average number of implants. The price obviously depends on location, type of rotator cuff repair, and severity.

In brief: Hard to say.

It depends on many things.
There is a charge from the surgeon, anesthesiologist, and the hospital/outpatient surgery center. There is the cost of implants used for the repair. The better question is what does everyone get paid? Most of the time the insurance companies will only pay so much for a particular procedure. If someone is paying cash, they can negotiate a price ahead of time.

In brief: Depends

There are several costs associated with any surgery.
There is a hospital charge, an anesthesia charge, and the surgeon charge. Most often, charges are determined using regional benchmarks. Cost in new york city may be quite different than the same procedure in oklahoma.
