Hi This is Dr Stan and I will assist you today. First call her insurance company and explain the situation to them. Most of the time the insurance company will make arrangements with the doctor on a one time basis to cover her care or find another doctor in your area that can do the same procedure. I can not estimate the cost of the surgery or hospital, but that is not the important factor at this time. What's important is getting the surgery completed. I hope this has been helpful. Please rate my response and a positive rating is always appreciated.
