How Much Does Open Heart Surgery Cost?


The cost of open heart surgery depends on the type of surgery performed on the heart. For example, a single coronary artery bypass will cost less than a double bypass or triple bypass surgical procedure. The methodology used in the open heart surgery will also determine cost; traditional or off-pump. Cardiac care in the United States is expensive and heart bypass can cost up to $130,000 to $150,000, depending on the amount of cardiac damage, the procedure and how many grafts are being placed. Single bypass surgery averages around $15,000 to $30,000 for each graft, but costs may differ between geographic regions and hospital. A single bypass graft costs roughly $10,000 in India, and $18,500 in Singapore. In South Africa, the procedure costs roughly $12,80.
