Hernia surgery is used to fix a hernia—a protrusion of an internal organ (like your intestine or bladder) through a weak point of the abdominal wall. Your doctor may recommend hernia surgery to avoid possible issues like strangulation, where the protruding organ becomes trapped, cutting off blood supply.

For the purposes of this post, we’re referring to inguinal hernia surgery keyhole hernia surgery only, which is used to fix inguinal hernias. “Inguinal” means a hernia is in the groin area—which is extremely common. According to the study published by American Family Physician, approximately 75% of all hernias are inguinal.

Hernia laparoscopic surgery is usually performed by a general surgeon, and the level of anaesthesia (general, regional, local) depends on each individual case. It can be done laparoscopically, which involves smaller incisions and the use of a tiny camera. Most patients go home the same day as having hernia surgery, but recovery may take three weeks or longer.

Inguinal hernias can appear suddenly or take weeks to become noticeable. The symptoms of a hernia may include some or all of the following:

Bulging in the groin, scrotum, or labia

Swelling

Pain or discomfort, especially when bending down or lifting objects

Nausea

Vomiting

Sensitivity or tenderness at the spot of the hernia

If you have any of these symptoms, you should see your primary care provider. They may recommend hernia surgery to avoid further complications.

Though a hernia won’t go away on it’s own, many adults don’t need immediate hernia surgery and can wait months or even years while monitoring symptoms with their doctor. Children and infants are at a higher risk of complications, and may need immediate surgery.

If you have any of the following, your doctor may recommend that you don’t have hernia surgery:

Chronic illness

Cirrhosis

An enlarged prostate (men)

Past radiation in the groin area

Blood thinner prescription

A skin infection that could infect the material used to repair the hernia

While hernia surgery is the only way to fix a hernia, it may not be necessary or advisable for some adults. If you’re unsure whether you need surgery, talk to your doctor about your options.

Amino found that the median network rate for hernia surgery is $7,743. We found the price ranges across the US from $6,312 to $10,517—that’s a significant difference.

These are the factors that impact how much hernia surgery costs:

Where you live often affects how much your surgery costs, especially since it determines which hospitals and doctors are available to you. For example, if you live in an urban area, you may have more options to choose from.

Most insurers cover hernia surgery as long as it’s medically necessary, which may require proof of pain or discomfort. Medicare and Medicaid usually cover a portion of necessary hernia surgery, too.

 

If you don’t have hernia surgery insurance, you may have to pay out-of-pocket. We found the breakdown of costs is as follows:

The estimated cost for charges (facility charges): 20000

The estimated cost for anaesthesia: 4000

Estimated cost for the hernia surgery procedure: 15000

Estimated cost for the recovery room charges (facility charges): 5000

Estimated cost for other hospital charges (facility charges): 2000

Most of the cost comes from facility charges, so where you get care (which doctor and facility you go to) can have a big impact on your total cost.

The network rate, which is what our estimates are based on, is negotiated between your health insurance company and doctor or hospital—so your insurance company and whatever provider you choose will play a large role in determining the cost. Our cost estimates show that $5,809 of the $7,743 for hernia surgery hernia treatment insurance —75% of the cost—comes from the facility charges. (On average, the procedure itself only costs $851.)

Your health insurance plan affects the cost of your surgery for a few reasons. Whether your surgeon is in-network or out-of-network can impact the overall cost. Your co-insurance and co-pay, as well as how much of your deductible you have left, can also make a difference in how much you pay out-of-pocket.

What happens during the procedure, such as what kind of anesthesia you get (and whether your anesthesiologist is in-network or out-of-network), can change the cost. If emergencies arise during surgery, you might have additional unexpected costs.

Your personal health also plays a role in how much your surgery costs. If you go into surgery with preexisting health problems, there could be additional expenses.

Now that you know how much your hernia surgery could cost, let’s explore insurance coverage and how to get the most care for your money.

Even if your insurance does cover some or most of your hernia surgery, you’ll likely pay some of the cost out-of-pocket. To make sure you’re getting the most (and best) care for your money:

Ask your insurance company about your costs, like co-insurance, copays, and deductibles

Utilize your Health Savings Account (HSA), Flexible Spending Account (FSA), and Health Reimbursement Account (HRA) to cover out-of-pocket expenses

 

Do your research and compare prices for different doctors

Look into outpatient centers—they often have more affordable surgery options

Have a conversation with your doctor. This is especially important if you don’t have insurance and are paying for your hernia surgery yourself. Some doctors will offer a discount or an interest-free payment plan if they know that you’re shouldering the cost on your own
