Leading the Change

Surgery Center of Oklahoma is the standard-bearer for upfront health care pricing.
A hysterectomy costs $8,000; a tonsillectomy/adenoidectomy, $3,100. A bone marrow biopsy is $5,800. Total knee replacement: $15,499. Those prices—which include pre- and post-operative services, surgeon(s), anesthesia, pathology, facility fees and, in the case of joint replacement, physical therapy and home health—are all offered by Surgery Center of Oklahoma, which has operated outside the traditional health insurance system for nearly 25 years.
