Today I had two pre-op visits. One with the nurse of Dr. Baum, and another one with the Surgery Center personnel. The procedure will be performed at the Ambulatory Surgery Center of Touro. Preputioplasty and frenulotomy are considered outpatient surgeries. Both nurses said that the whole time I will spend at the Center on the day of the surgery should be between four and five hours. I got two prescriptions, one for pain medication after the surgery, and one for antibiotics to start one day before the procedure. The rest was basically signing papers and consents.
I know that a lot of people wonder how expensive this procedure is. The total price that Dr. Baum’s office charges is around $1500. The official diagnosis is phimosis, and my insurance covers it. So, in total, I paid out-of-pocket around $200 to Dr. Baum. I will post how much the bill from the Ambulatory Surgery Center of Touro is.
