Cost of TKA : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

I have a relative in India who is interested in having a knee replacement operation in the US. He would be paying for the surgery out of pocket, as he is not covered by health insurance. How much (ballpark figure) would he expect to pay--including all hospital costs and price of equipment?

I just celebrated 5 weeks post-surgery for TKA. It was the best thing that I could of done for my knee. So, far my cost is at $35,000. I do not have my surgeons bill yet, nor the phyiscal thearpy. I figured by the time everything is done with, it will be around $50,000. I live in Ohio, 50 miles from Cleveland, Ohio. If you have any questions please feel free to email me.
