Default Cost for a single-level M6-L in Europe?

It's been a couple years since I've been around the site, but....following two recent car accidents....I find the condition of my L5-S1 deteriorating again (after a couple years of relative stability). Back in mid-2013, I'd been in touch with Dr. Bierstedt, Dr. Zeegers, Dr. Clavel and Dr. Dare. If I recall correctly, a single level ADR (most often the M6-L) was running in the mid-$35K range (out of pocket), and I'm curious if prices have gone down at all....or are still in the same ballpark? Back then my financial situation was a bit more conducive to going across to Europe, but now might be a different story. That said, I figured I'd start doing the leg-work now....just in case.

Thanks, and best regards to all!

Alan

Default costs in Euro

I think a single level lumbar is going to be around 26K Euro.

Default Thanks!

Romakis,

Appreciate the feedback. Hadn't taken into account that the USD to Euro exchange rate is better now Will have to touch base with Dr. Clavel's office for specifics.....

Kind regards,
Alan
