4/29/2016 What is the role of vertebroplasty?
How much does spinal fusion surgery cost? The answer depends on what part of the country you live in, reports a study in the September 1 issue.
Dr. W. Ryan Spiker and colleagues at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, analyzed 2012 Medicare data on the costs of two common types of spinal fusion surgery: anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) and posterior lumbar fusion (PLF). Costs for spinal fusion vary substantially by region, with costs being lowest in the Midwest and highest in the Northeast. The researchers note, "This data sheds light on the actual cost of common surgeries throughout the United States, and will allow further progress towards the development of cost effective, value driven care."

Their results raise some interesting "questions, trends and observations"—including the finding that the two most-cited studies focus on situations when spinal surgery should not be performed.
