“I’m not insured. I need surgery badly. Can you help? Sincerely, John Smith”

We get inquiries like this everyday. Our first response is that yes, we can help. Being uninsured is not an issue – all of our clients are uninsured. Anyone who does have insurance, doesn’t need us. Actually, that’s not entirely true. Some policies have a deductible which is higher than the cost at which we are able to provide surgery. If a policy has $15,000 deductible, and if we can provide the same surgery for $10,000, then we can help.

Back to Mr. Smith. If he needs a knee replacement, and is uninsured, the average price of this surgery, across the U.S., is $53,500. Our clients pay $18,800 – a 65% discount. For the most part, our clients are happy with a 65% discount.

Some people though, are furious that the charge is $18,800, after the 65% discount. “I told you – I’m uninsured. I can’t pay anything” they say. “I need a 100% discount”.

Unfortunately, we are unable to help these people.

About Us

For the last four years we have been facilitating surgical procedures for clients wishing to access the favorable pricing which we have negotiated with hospitals and clinics across the country.


North American Surgery Inc. is able to access reasonably priced surgical procedures of all types in U.S. based facilities.  Our clients pay a small fraction of the standard prices charged by most U.S. hospitals.  Typically the prices we have negotiated are comparable to the costs associated with off-shore surgery in places such as India, Thailand or Mexico.


The role of our firm is to act as a facilitator, brining our clients together with private medical services and clinics which can provide the needed services and / or procedures in a timely manner. Once arrangements have been made to the mutual satisfaction of our client and their physician, we have no ongoing involvement in the doctor-patient relationship.
