How Much Does an Appendectomy Cost?

An appendectomy is the surgical removal of the appendix.  This is necessary in the case of a person being diagnosed with appendicitis, or inflammation of the appendix.  An appendectomy is actually considered to be a major surgical operation since it removes an organ of the body.  It needs to be done, however, because if the appendix bursts, there could be serious infection or even death as a result.  A general surgeon will perform the operation, which can either be done through an open procedure or through laparoscopy.  Appendicitis usually occurs in young males and females, particularly those in their teenage years.
