The cost of a total knee implant varies, depending on the type of implant used. Generally, the hospital purchases the implant and includes it as part of the total cost for the surgery. The ultimate cost for knee replacement surgery is specific to the hospital where the surgery is performed. Please contact the hospital accounting office to get an estimate of the charges for surgery.
Standard knee replacement surgery is usually covered by most insurance plans.
