Cyst Removal Colorado Springs
Cysts can often be a source of annoyance or pain. Many people have cysts, and many leave them alone. But if a cyst bothers you either because it hurts or it looks bad, it is very reasonable to get it removed. Cyst removal is something that we do here at Easy Orthopedics in Colorado Springs. We provide transparent cash pricing which includes the surgeon’s fee, anesthesia, facility fee, and the pathology cost (sending the cyst out for someone to look at it under a microscope to see what the cyst was).
When should a cyst be removed?
A cyst should be removed if it bothers you, or if it is growing at a significant rate. A good rule of thumb is that if a cyst is less than 5 cm in diameter, then it is probably not cancerous. Cysts over 5 cm in diameter have a higher risk of being cancerous. If you have a cyst that bothers you because of the way it looks, it is reasonable to get it removed. Or if you have a cyst that actually causes you pain, removing it is also reasonable.
What kind of doctor removes a cyst?
There are a few different types of doctors that can remove cysts. Dermatologists often remove cysts that are sitting on the skin. Orthopedic surgeons will generally remove cysts that are deeper and may be more difficult to remove because the cyst is around nerves, arteries, and veins. General surgeons and primary care doctors can remove cysts as well. Cyst removals are generally done in an operating room or a procedure room. At Easy Orthopedics in Colorado Springs, we generally use a procedure room which provides a sterile environment to avoid infections.
How much does it cost to get rid of a cyst?
For the cyst removals that we do in Colorado Springs, we provide binding transparent cash pricing that is bundled, meaning that includes the surgeon’s fee, anesthesia, facility fee, and the pathology cost. You will only pay the listed price, and nothing more. This is a great option if you are a cash pay patient, or have a high deductible health plan, as having a cyst removal at our facility will cost substantially less than most other places that work with insurances. We also can take HSA payments.
