Re: Hernia surgery
- For this procedure, I recommend Dr. Jacobo Zafrani, one of Central America's most eminient bariatric surgeons (he operated on Laura Chinchilla a year and a half ago, by the way. It takes about an hour.
The approximate cost of the procedure at California Hospital with Dr. Zafrani, including hospital stay, doctor fees and pre-ops is:
$6,700 USD unilateral laparoscopic inguinal hernia
$8,000 bi-lateral inguinal hernia.
The approximate price at Hospital Clínica Bíblica is: $8,250 USD for unilateral and $9,900 for bi-lateral inguinal hernia.
The procedure includes:
· Medication during surgery and on post-op discharge
· Consultation with an internist
· Blood work
· Pre-op and post-op consultations
· Doctor costs
· Hospital costs
Call me and I can give you his contact info.
