What factors affect colectomy cost

  • Type of method. Specialists apply 2 types of colectomy: laparoscopic and open. According to online medical journal Jama Network, laparoscopic colectomy is safer and less traumatic than open one. It boosts recovery, reduces pain, and improves patient’s quality of life. Laparoscopic colectomy can be cheaper than open. It depends on tumor size and complexity of removal.
  • Surgeon’s experience. A specialist who has academic degrees, huge experience, numerous achievements, and awards may ask for a higher fee.
  • Country's price policy. Colon cancer surgery price depends on a country’s population income. For example, colectomy is cheaper in Israel — from $15,000 and more expensive in the USA — approx. $30,000. Healthcare quality in both countries is at the highest level as well.
  • Hospital’s rating. The colon cancer surgery cost depends on how many certificates and awards the hospital has. Most clinics listed below have got JCI (Joint Commission International) accreditation for the best healthcare services.
  • Extra fees. Some German medical centers ask for prepayment, but if treatment cost occurs cheaper, they can give the rest of the money back.

How is colectomy performed?

There are several types of colectomy but only a doctor decides which one a patient requires. Specialists perform laparoscopic (minimally invasive) and open colectomies.

The laparoscopic colectomy cost is less traumatic than open one because a doctor makes only three small incisions (up to 1 cm) on the abdomen during the operation. A doctor delivers a video tube through one of the incisions and a tool in another one. Then a doctor removes the colon out of the patient’s body controlling the process on a screen. When a colon is repaired, it is inserted back through a small incision on the patient’s abdomen.

Laparoscopic colectomy is performed for early-stage colon cancer.

Open colectomy requires longer incision, longer hospitalization, and more medicines for postoperative period than after laparoscopy.

Both procedures are carried out under general anesthesia. Colectomy takes from 4 to 6 hours.

What are the advantages of laparoscopic colectomy?

  • minimal blood loss and less traumas
  • shorter hospital stay
  • less pain during postoperative period
  • low risk of infections
  • less scarring than after open surgery.

The patient was consulted in this clinic

Normal clinic, did not see anything special. They prescribed good medicines, I felt better. There were also very good translators. It is better to always be insured, because if there is insurance, the clinic offers a 50% discount.

The patient was treated of ovarian cancer

The format is quite simple, everything is accessible and understandable, the doctor is very qualified. I will not say that we talked about clinical studies, there was no definitive information. We are happy, time has been spent, the translator also translated everything correctly. The doctor explained everything popularly, we received an answer to all the questions we asked. I believe that what you are doing is very important and useful for people who need help.

The patient underwent rhinoplasty

Passed online consultation. After the consultation, a treatment plan was created, which we will undergo, further consultations will continue. Online consultation is very convenient and of course there were some doubts, especially when the invoice was billed, because it was a bit confusing, there was only one seal, so I advise you to make the documents more official, so that you would not be so scared to pay for the consultation.
