Seaside enters medical tourism market with bundled prices
Orthopaedic surgery packages are all-inclusive

The only outpatient surgery center in Southwest Florida designed and built exclusively for same-day joint replacements has posted another first - literally. On December 20, 2017, the Center posted all-inclusive orthopaedic surgery package pricing on its website.
"No other orthopaedic ambulatory surgery center (ASC) serving the five-county area of Collier, Lee, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades has taken a step in this direction," said Seaside Co-Founder, CEO and Medical Director Robert J. Zehr, M.D. "We're excited to take the lead in offering bundled, transparent package pricing for four of our most popular procedures - knee arthroscopy ($4,000), partial knee replacement ($22,500), total knee replacement ($23,700), and total hip replacement ($24,900)."

The Center's administrator, Cindy Schuetz, R.N., is quick to point out that these prices apply only to those patients paying cash. "This program was developed for those patients who do not intend to submit to an insurer for payment," explains Schuetz. "We can offer these prices because we save a good deal of time and resources by not needing to handle the mountain of paperwork that filing claims entails."

Seaside advises consumers to look carefully at any package that claims to be "all-inclusive," as all cash pay plans are not alike. Some do not address the cost of implants or hardware; some do not include the physical therapy required after every joint replacement; some plans only address the three "biggies" - surgeon's fee, OR (facility) fee, and anesthesiologist's fee.

"I just wanted to say thank you for taking such great care of my Mom. She had a meniscus repair and every person who she came in contact with was delightful, caring and professional. She has been raving about how great the experience was to anyone who will listen! Bless you all."
