Our Surgery Center
At Monticello Community Surgery Center, we are a group of physicians and surgeons, including myself, who have made a commitment to remain independent. We are pursuing a new, better way to provide care that involves transparent prices and accessible providers. We’re tired of insurance companies telling patients how expensive care has to be - when really, prices don’t have to be that high. Great care shouldn’t drive people into bankruptcy - and at our center, it doesn’t.
Here, when you visit for care, you have the option for an honest cash price. You’re going to know exactly how much your treatment is going to be. You’ll know the total for the surgeon’s fee, facility fee, and anesthesiologist fee. All follow-up care within 90 days is included in the initial price, so there are no surprise bills after your treatment.
Use this tool to easily look up the price of any surgery at our practice.
NOTE: Prices posted in the pricing tool only apply to direct cash payments or non-insurance based payments.
Our transparent, affordable pricing model is new to many people who never see the true price of the care they get when they enter a hospital system with an insurance partner.
While we provide care to patients with traditional insurance, we offer an alternative that's especially beneficial for a few different types of people: those who work for self-insured companies, people with high-deductible plans, people in health sharing groups, and those who pay for their care out-of-pocket. Above all, we attract patients who are looking for genuine, caring doctors who are rapidly accessible and convenient.
In short, we are more accessible, transparent, convenient, and affordable than other health systems. We also boast some of Virginia’s top doctors, who have high levels of American medical education and training and provide world-class care.
Beyond the talent and skill in our group of physicians and surgeons, our patients at Monticello get more personalized attention than they would at a larger institution. We also deliver care with genuine kindness and are very easy to contact, set up a consultation with, and follow-up with after your visit. On top of that, surgeons like Dr. Grant have adopted the latest teleconferencing software so he can meet with new patients all across Virginia and the entire country.
We’re also not owned by a hospital system or other entity, allowing us to practice with a new degree of freedom. We don’t have the pressure of seeing a given amount of patients each day or rushing care and ordering unnecessary tests - allowing us to quickly move toward getting patients the care we know they need. We take a conservative approach to medicine but can accelerate care and perform surgeries more efficiently than traditional hospital systems.
We have a loyal group of families who have stuck with our care for decades. Though our new center has only been open for two years, we have plenty of patients who have been coming to us as individual providers for the past 15+ years who trust us with continuity of their care. We know their medical histories and can provide better, more personalized care because of those relationships.
On top of it all, our staff is incredible. We’ve carefully selected a team of inspiring, committed, and kind people who welcome patients to the office and make everyone feel like friends. The culture we aspire to is what draws people back over and over again for our care and why they feel comfortable recommending us to their friends and family.
