Orthopaedic Surgery Center of Clearwater is an ambulatory surgery center specializing in orthopaedic care. We are owned and operated by nine orthopaedic surgeons. Since opening its doors in 2001, the center has remained accredited by the Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Care (AAAHC), having passed our latest inspection in March of 2014. The facility’s rate of infection is 0.17%, an exceptionally low number (the national average is 3-5% for ambulatory care).
Our mission is to provide the highest quality of outpatient services as a convenient, cost-effective alternative to traditional outpatient hospital care. Our dedicated staff are committed to listening both to the physicians and to the patients they serve, so as to merit patient trust and exceed all expectations.

NOTE: If you wish to file an insurance claim for your surgery at our center, the prices listed on this website do not apply to you.
The prices for the procedures listed on this website include the facility fee, the surgeon’s fee and the anesthesiologist’s fee. The initial consultation with the surgeon is also included within our listed prices. If your surgeon deems you unfit for surgery, you will only be required to pay $200 for the consultation. If you are a candidate for surgery, the price listed on this site will also include uncomplicated follow-up care. Postoperative follow up care varies by the individual. For this reason, your surgeon will inform you at your initial consultation what your recovery will entail and what will or will not be covered by our bundled price. For the majority of cases, follow up care consists of a postoperative visit with the surgeon and a possible visit to the surgeon’s office to remove any sutures. Such care would be deemed uncomplicated.
The procedure list on this website is a partial list of our available self pay procedures. If the procedure you believe you require is not listed on this website, feel free to call or message us to inquire about availability and pricing.
The prices listed are not negotiable and are available only to those who pay the entire amount prior to the surgery being performed. We are able to offer these prices due to the lack of expense in processing the claims and the absence of risk for non-payment. Alternative payment arrangements can be made with human resource departments or divisions of self-insured entities if necessary. Once again, if you are scheduled for surgery at our facility and insurance is to be filed by us, the prices listed on our website do not apply to you.
The following are NOT included in the fees above:
Any diagnostic studies necessary prior to the surgery such as lab, MRI, X-rays, consultations with specialists to determine medical risk/management, physical therapy and rehabilitation.
Any hardware or implants necessary for completion of the procedure (plates and screws, etc.). This price information will be provided prior to surgery but subsequent to the surgical consultation. Our experienced surgical staff knows with almost certainty what will be needed to complete your surgery and the implantable hardware will be provided to you at invoice cost without any markup whatsoever. Copies of the invoices will be provided to you.
Expenses or fees resulting from complications subsequent to the completion of the surgery and discharge from the facility are also not included.
Lodging and travel expenses are not included in the price of the procedures. We have partnered with multiple hotels located on Clearwater Beach and will be happy to share our discounted rates. Our hotel partners vary in price so as to meet your budgetary needs. Rates fluctuate seasonally, but we can give you a price estimate prior to your surgery being booked and can give you confirmed pricing when specific dates are chosen.
While each surgery brings its own unique challenges, we promise to keep your healthcare as clear and simple as possible. The pricing outlined on this website aims to be straightforward and clear. What you see is what you pay. We are truly committed to providing the best quality care at the lowest possible price. Thank you for considering Orthopaedic Surgery Center of Clearwater for your surgical needs.
