In brief: Several thousand

It depends on how big the hernia is and how the surgeon fixes it (open or laparoscopically).
The total cost includes the surgeon's fee, the anesthesiologist, nurses, operating room and equipment, and medications. This is usually several thousand dollars. Insurance should cover the surgery. If you don't have insurance, some surgeons' offices will work with you to reduce the cost.

In brief: Variable

The actual cost depends on the technique of repair, type of anesthesia, and location of repair. One thing to be sure however is that the quality of the repair is not figured in to the cost.
Do your research, and choose a surgeon with whom you have confidence. Sorry to drone on, but its not a simple issue in the us.

In brief: 3 charges

Surgeon, location, anesthesia.
The surgeon is usually the cheapest. If you don't have insurance most surgeons will give u a discount. Anesthesia will often discount their price as well. The hospital is the largest cost but you may qualify for charity if you don't have insurance. In that case it may be free. Find a surgeon willing to work with you.

In brief: Insurance?

If you have insurance it will likely be covered.
Otherwise you need to ask the doctor and perhaps do some shopping around for a good surgeon at a reasonable price.
