Ocean Surgery Center – Price Transparency Comes to California

Until now, Californians have only had a couple options for affordable surgeries and all of them have been out-of-state. Fortunately, Ocean Surgery Center in Torrance has come to the rescue for Californians. Inspired by the work of Keith Smith, MD and his Surgery Center of Oklahoma, all of their prices are listed on the website and, just like the Surgery Center of Oklahoma, the prices are all-inclusive (facility fee, surgeon fee, anesthesiologist fee).

The surgery prices listed on the website range from a couple thousand dollars to about $10,000. From what I can tell, they are a mere fraction of what you’d have to pay at a competing, non-profit hospital.

You can read more about the center on Keith Smith’s blog here. See below for more info:
