More and more Americans are without health insurance and the Houston Hernia Center has responded with the most affordable fee in the nation. Most of our patients do not have health insurance.
One single charge covers the surgeon’s fee, anesthesiologist fee, a State Certified Ambulatory Surgical center, and mesh materials. No other center offers this as affordably and safety as the Houston Hernia Center.
These fees are based on a non-complicated hernia repair.
The total costs are often $15,000 to $20,000 BELOW standard charges that most surgeons and hospitals charge.
All operations (which include Inguinal, Umbilical, Epigastric or Incisional Hernias) are performed through a Non-Tension technique with Meshes. This technique has the lowest chances of recurrent hernias in the future. Tension techniques in which Meshes are not used have the highest recurrence rates and increase the chances that a redo operation will have to be done in the future.
Most insurance plans cover the treatment of hernia. Specific coverage will depend on the details within your policy.
We're pleased to offer our patients the CareCredit card. The CareCredit card is just as easy to use as a regular credit card, but it's designed specifically for your health and beauty needs. Best of all, CareCredit offers 0% financing, convenient payment plans and no hidden costs. You can even use your CareCredit card over and over for follow-up appointments.
Dr. Garza often participates in hernia research protocols that may offer compensation to patients included in the studies. These studies are all IRB reviewed and approved. For more information please contact us at (713) 932-1001.
With patient safety and convenience in mind, all surgeries are performed in only a licensed Hospital or Ambulatory Surgical Center. Our center is equipped to handle surgical emergencies and is staffed by Board Certified Anesthesiologists that can handle Cardiac and Pulmonary complications. None of these procedure are performed in a doctor's office but in a fully staffed Ambulatory Surgical Center or Hospital.
