How Much Does a Knee Replacement Cost at the Cleveland Clinic?

May 22, 2014

So a flight of stairs has turned into a Mount Everest like quest for you, your knee(s) aren’t what they used to be when frolicking and fast movement were routine.

If it’s time to go under the knife, you might want to know how much this tune up could cost you?

Of course, joint replacement surgery is pretty serious and a “big ticket item” as far as medical treatment is concerned.

Just in the last few months alone I’ve had several clients tell me they need or just had a knee replacement.

This hit even closer to home when my mom recently headed up to the Cleveland Clinic for a knee job of her own.

After she got the bill, I thought this information was worth sharing so you could see exactly how much this service cost and how your health insurance company might handle it.

The grand total was $37,068.89.


That’s the cost of a fully loaded SUV…

Of course, a slew of different services are included in that total cost, here’s a quick breakdown of a few of the big ones:

  • Semi-Private Ward Other Room and Board
  • Pharmacy
  • All Inclusive Ancillaries
  • Devices and Implants
  • Laboratory Pathological
  • Operating Room
  • Diagnostic Radiology
  • Physical Therapy
  • Occupational Therapy

You can also see a detailed cost breakdown of those services from the document below.
