In brief: Tough to answer...

In the usa orthopaedic surgeons fees for that procedure are typically around $2000.
The expensive part of the surgery is the hospital cost, anesthesia, etc. And it can be substantial ie >$20k if you dont have insurance.

In brief: ACL and meniscus

Costs vary with type of anesthesia, location of procedure, implants or products used, sometimes with time in or and recovery, meds needed, pt duration, any imaging, bracing, dressings, crutches.
Ask your orthopedic surgeon for their fees, but remember the cost of pt and bracing will increase the bottom line.

In brief: Wide variability

Need to see an ortho.
We all use cpt codes for each procedure. They should be able to tell you the codes they are using (29888 acl recon, 29881 meniscectomy, 29882 meniscal repair, etc). Based upon codes, there is a price associated. Your cost depends upon insurance. If no insurance, then you are going to need some time to shop around. Keep in mind 3 costs: hospital, ortho and anesthesia.
