There are a few websites that will give you the range of prices and then try to find a surgeon for you.

https://www.newchoicehealth.com/wrist-surgery-cost and
https://healthcarebluebook.com/

are two can give you the range of costs. but the actual cost is set by the surgeon, anesthesiologist and the hospital or surgery center, so to get accurate cost, you would have to discuss with the surgeon
