Premier Surgery Packages Frequently Asked Questions

What is included in the price?

Each package includes the fees for your surgeon, the facility, and anesthesia. There is a pre-surgery consultation fee, but the fee is waived if you are a candidate for surgery. The total price may vary depending on the complexity of your procedure. Please note: If you have bi-lateral or multiple procedures during the same surgery, the price could be higher.

Are gallbladder and hernia the only procedures offered?

Yes, at this time the package pricing applies only to gall bladder and hernia procedures that are performed at our Premier Surgical Office Based Surgery Center in Knoxville. Stay tuned, we plan to expand our procedure options in the future.

How long is the quoted price valid?

60 days.

What is NOT included in the price?

The package price does not include pre-surgery diagnostic studies (such as imaging, labs and blood tests), outpatient medications or travel. Pathology tests during and after surgery are not included in the package cost.

Where will my procedure be performed?

If you’re a candidate, your surgery will be performed at the Premier Surgical Office Based Surgery Suites on Papermill Drive in Knoxville. The facility is state certified and accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities.

What if I’m not a candidate for office based surgery?

If your case is more complex, your procedure will be performed at one of our local hospitals. We perform surgery at Fort Sanders Regional, Parkwest Medical Center, Tennova Turkey Creek Medical Center, Tennova Physicians Regional and Tennova North Medical Center.

Please note: Our package pricing does not apply to hospital-based surgeries. If a hospital surgery is recommended, our office manager will discuss your insurance and payment options with you.
