Prices of surgical services in Iran
Before examining the average prices of surgery in Iran, we should note that the price of each surgery will be different according to the type of surgery and services received by the patient. Equipment used during surgery, the number of surgical services in the operating room, the number of days in the hospital, tests required by the doctor, drugs, paraclinical services such as imaging depending on the doctor’s diagnosis or surgery and consultation or doctors’ visits, for each person is different from another person and it is not possible to definitely determine the exact price before going to the hospital.
