Costs & Facts
- For patients not covered by health insurance, $20,000 to $60,000 is the typical cost. This includes the surgeon’s fee, facility fee, anesthesia and medical supplies. The part of the body being amputated is a huge factor in the cost (anything above the knee would be on the higher end).
- After this, physical therapy is necessary.
- After the surgery a prosthesis is made. The cost of a prosthesis ranges from a few thousand dollars for a very basic prosthetic limb to more than $50,000 for a more high-tech limb with a computer chip. But even the most expensive prosthetic limbs only last 3-5 years which means they will need to be replaced over the course of a lifetime
- It is estimated that at least 30,000 of these traumatic events occur every year in the U.S.
