User avatar Hello,
To determine the cost of an ACL repair for example, contact both the hospital and the surgeon - you will have two separate charges from each. Also, check with the anesthesia physician - they will have a charge too. I can only guess that the cost will be in the 20K ballpark.

Then there is post surgical rehab - probably 2K for 4 weeks of outpatient rehab.

Take care.
