89% is a 5-year survival rate for patients after colon cancer surgery according to cancer.net. Doctors often assign surgery for colon cancer patients alone or in combination with other therapies (chemo, radiation therapy, immune- or targeted therapies).

What factors affect colectomy cost

  • Type of method. Specialists apply 2 types of colectomy: laparoscopic and open. According to online medical journal Jama Network, laparoscopic colectomy is safer and less traumatic than open one. It boosts recovery, reduces pain, and improves patient’s quality of life. Laparoscopic colectomy can be cheaper than open. It depends on tumor size and complexity of removal.
  • Surgeon’s experience. A specialist who has academic degrees, huge experience, numerous achievements, and awards may ask for a higher fee.
  • Country's price policy. Colon cancer surgery price depends on a country’s population income. For example, colectomy is cheaper in Israel — from $15,000 and more expensive in the USA — approx. $30,000. Healthcare quality in both countries is at the highest level as well.
  • Hospital’s rating. The colon cancer surgery cost depends on how many certificates and awards the hospital has. Most clinics listed below have got JCI (Joint Commission International) accreditation for the best healthcare services.
  • Extra fees. Some German medical centers ask for prepayment, but if treatment cost occurs cheaper, they can give the rest of the money back.

How much does the cheapest colon cancer surgery cost?

The cheapest colectomy cost starts from $8,700. Turkey offers such a price in its medical centers. It is twice cheaper than in the USA, Germany, Israel, and Spain. Such cost is explained by the country’s price policy and living wage. Healthcare in Turkey remains at the highest level due to experienced doctors, innovative options, and newest medical equipment.

How is colectomy performed?

There are several types of colectomy but only a doctor decides which one a patient requires. Specialists perform laparoscopic (minimally invasive) and open colectomies.

The laparoscopic colectomy cost is less traumatic than open one because a doctor makes only three small incisions (up to 1 cm) on the abdomen during the operation. A doctor delivers a video tube through one of the incisions and a tool in another one. Then a doctor removes the colon out of the patient’s body controlling the process on a screen. When a colon is repaired, it is inserted back through a small incision on the patient’s abdomen.

Laparoscopic colectomy is performed for early-stage colon cancer.

Open colectomy requires longer incision, longer hospitalization, and more medicines for postoperative period than after laparoscopy.

Both procedures are carried out under general anesthesia. Colectomy takes from 4 to 6 hours.

What are the advantages of laparoscopic colectomy?

  • minimal blood loss and less traumas
  • shorter hospital stay
  • less pain during postoperative period
  • low risk of infections
  • less scarring than after open surgery.
