Amputation Costs & Facts
- For patients not covered by health insurance, the typical cost of an amputation ranges from $20,000 to $60,000 including the surgeon’s fee, facility fee, anesthesia and medical supplies. The cost depends partly on the part of the body being amputated; a toe amputation would be at the lower end of the cost range, while an above-the-knee amputation would be at the higher end.
- After amputation, 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 traumatic amputations occur every year in the U.S.
