Dr. Wickline offers a cash-pay option for joint replacement procedures for patients who will not be filing the procedure to Medicare or private insurance. Dr. Wickline’s cash-pay option for joint replacement allows patients who do not have insurance or are traveling in from other countries to have their joint replacements done by a highly-qualified and caring surgeon.
A key benefit of self-pay hip and knee replacements is that patients may have more options than those using insurance because they are not limited to the facilities, pain management techniques, and rehabilitation plans that the insurance company will approve. Patients who self-pay for their hip or knee replacements will experience the high-quality level of care and innovative techniques that Dr. Wickline is known for. This includes minimally invasive surgical approaches, advanced pain management techniques that reduce or eliminate the need for opioids, and non-aggressive rehabilitation exercises that are easier on the patient than traditional therapy methods. Since 85% of knees and 95% of hips don’t need any formal therapy with Dr. Wickline’s therapy-free protocols, patients can potentially save a significant amount of money.
My wife and I drove the 4 hours the day before surgery to a hotel close to the hospital. Next day, Dr. Wickline and his crew replaced my worn-out knee. I was up walking that afternoon and returned to the hotel for the night. Next morning, Dr. Wickline visited me before my wife drove me home. A week later I was driving. Fantastic experience. I am so happy I found Dr. Wickline and the staff at Genesee Orthopedic. I love my new knee!Sam G. in Pennsylvania
