Customer Question

What is the average cost for a 2-level ACDF surgery, autograft, with 4 days of hospital stay

There are several factors to consider.

The instrumentation for the cervical fusion will probably cost about $5000.

The surgeon's fee, anesthesiologist, and OR time will probably be $6000-10000.

The hospital bed for 4 days can vary wildly, from several hundred dollars to more likely a few thousand dollars a day.

Because these costs vary from hospital to hospital from state to state, and insurance to insurance -- there isn't really any way to determine even an accurate "average" cost.
