Total knee replacement surgery costs range from $15,985 to $22,424 for cash paying patients at facilities publishing prices openly on our site. Cost depends most frequently on whether the procedure is done as outpatient surgery (same-day) or inpatient (typically at a hospital).
Knee surgery prices on our site usually include applicable facility, physician, and anesthesia fees, and in some cases includes hardware, rehab, and more. Sometimes the combined price is called a "bundled" or "global rate". Be sure to look for information on provider pages about what is included. It's also a good idea to talk to providers over the phone, not only to verify what a listed price represents, but also because most providers have additional services and information on pricing and payment that's not listed on their pages.
If you aren't careful, you could end up paying $30,000 to $60,000 or more for total knee surgery at some facilities. The highest rates are usually at hospitals and other larger facilities, which can have very high "list" prices and offer discounts only to insurers and street-smart cash payers. There's no need to get caught paying outlandish rates if you ask about pricing and payment beforehand.
