About Knee and Hip Replacement
Knee and Hip Replacement is a surgery that involves complete removal of the damaged knee or hip joint and replacement with an artificial joint. This medical procedure requires multiple services from different providers. Episodes of care combine these services to create a single estimate of average cost.
The estimate above reflects costs for all medical services received between the admission and discharge date or on the date of service. The average cost displayed is based on plan paid amount, plus copay, coinsurance, and deductible—not charged amount. See the Methodology page for more information.
