Hospital Pricing Information

New guidelines established by the United States Department of Health and Human Services require hospitals to place a list of their standard charges on their website. This includes the hospital’s standard charges for each diagnosis-related group (DRG). A DRG provides a way to categorize the type of patients a hospital treats and covers all charges associated with an inpatient stay from admission to discharge.

We understand that the costs of care can be confusing. A comprehensive list, generally referred to as the hospital’s “chargemaster,” includes the standard charges established by the hospital for individual services and supplies provided, and may be accessed below. The hospital’s average charges for each DRG also may be accessed below. The payment amounts that hospitals receive for patient care do not necessarily reflect the prices on either the chargemaster or the hospital’s average DRG charge.

If you have private insurance and are interested in understanding what your “out-of-pocket” costs may be for care you receive at the hospital, we encourage you to contact your health insurance company because it is in the best position to help you understand your healthcare financial obligations. For patients with Medicare or Medicaid, or patients without insurance, you may contact the hospital’s patient financial services department for estimates or additional information.

For any assistance regarding this information, please call 903.870.0999.

Ear, Nose, and Throat

What is Otolaryngology ("ENT")?

Otolaryngology, often referred to as Ear, Nose, and Throat or “ENT”, is the branch of medicine and surgery that specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the head and neck.

The most common procedures performed by the ENT doctors at Baylor Scott & White Surgical Hospital – Sherman are tonsillectomies and adenoidectomies, bilateral myringotomy pressure equalizing tubes (BMT), septoplasty, and endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS).

What is a tonsillectomy and adenoidectomy?

A tonsillectomy is the removal of the tonsils. This procedure may be recommended if at least one of the following criteria is present:

  • At least four to six severe tonsillitis infections in the past year
  • Two to three tonsillitis infections per year for more than two years
  • Enlarged tonsils that cause severe trouble breathing or sleep disturbance
  • Deep pockets of infection in the tonsils that haven’t responded to medication.

An adenoidectomy is the removal of the adenoids. This procedure may be recommended if at least one of the following criteria is present:

  • The enlarged adenoids are obstructing the airway (causing troubled breathing and sleep disturbance).
  • The adenoids may be causing persistent ear infections despite antibiotic treatment.

If both criteria are met, the doctor may recommend taking both out at the same time, eliminating a second surgery later. For either surgery or the combined procedure, the patient will be under anesthesia and unconscious.

What is BMT?

Bilateral myringotomy pressure equalizing tubes (BMT) are commonly referred to as “ear tubes.” An ear tube is a plastic, hollow spool. Physicians may suggest tubes for children who have repeat ear infections or when fluid stays behind the eardrum. The ENT doctor places the tubes through a small surgical opening made in the eardrum. The child is under anesthesia for this surgery.

Your Tonsillectomy, Adenoidectomy and BMT

Most tonsillectomy, adenoidectomy and BMT surgeries are performed on children. Baylor Scott & White Surgical Hospital – Sherman takes special care to make you and your child feel comfortable before, during, and after the procedure. When you arrive at the outpatient surgery department of the hospital, you will check in, and our specially trained nurses will prepare you and your child for surgery. The procedure usually takes only 30 minutes. Once your child is back in the recovery area and awake, one family member will be able to go to the recovery area and be with the child.

What is a septoplasty?

A septoplasty is the repair of a deviated septum. Your septum may be deviated at birth, can grow to one side or another during childhood, or can occur due to an injury. Surgery to straighten the septum can be done in conjunction with other procedures to treat chronic sinusitis, inflammation or bleeding, or to correct sleep apnea. The surgery is performed using an endoscope, which results in no external scarring.

Endoscopic Sinus Surgery/Balloon Sinuplasty

Endoscopic sinus surgery (ESS) is a procedure to open the sinus to relieve pressure and infection. There are a number of different approaches to sinus surgery. ESS involves the insertion of the endoscope, a very thin fiber-optic tube, into the nose for a direct visual examination of the openings into the sinuses. With advanced micro-telescopes and instruments, abnormal and obstructive tissues are then removed. In the majority of cases, the surgical procedure is performed entirely through the nostrils, leaving no external scars. There is usually minimal swelling and only mild discomfort.

Balloon sinuplasty is a procedure used to enlarge and open the small drainage passages into the sinuses. A small fiberoptic fiber is inserted into the targeted sinus and the location is verified. A balloon is advanced over the fiber and expanded to enlarge the opening. The fiber and balloon are then removed and the opening remains enlarged. This procedure is associated with less bleeding and less discomfort. It can be used in appropriate cases not requiring ESS.

Other Procedures

The procedures outlined above are the most common ENT surgeries performed at Baylor Scott & White Surgical Hospital – Sherman. If you would like more information about these, or any other ENT procedure, please contact the hospital at 903.870.0999.

Gastroenterology

What is Gastroenterology?

Gastroenterology is the study of the structure, functions, diseases and pathology of the digestive system. Gastroenterologists diagnose and treat conditions related to the intestines, liver, pancreas, gallbladder and stomach.

The most common procedures performed by physicians at Baylor Scott & White Surgical Hospital – Sherman are colonoscopies and endoscopies.

What is a Colonoscopy?

A colonoscopy procedure enables your doctor to examine the lining of your colon (large intestine) for abnormalities by inserting a flexible tube into the rectum and slowly advancing it through the colon. A colonoscopy is well-tolerated, and you are asleep throughout the procedure.

The American Cancer Society recently changed their recommended age for first colon screening for average-risk patients from 50 to 45. This change was made, in large part, because of the rise in colorectal incidence rates in a younger population over the last few years.

A colonoscopy is recommended for everyone age 45 or above. Polyps are known to develop by this time.

Polyps are abnormal growths in the colon lining that are usually benign and non-cancerous. They vary in size from a tiny dot to several inches. Your doctor will send removed polyps for analysis because he or she cannot always tell a benign polyp from a malignant (cancerous) polyp by its outer appearance. Because cancer begins in polyps, removing them is an important and effective means of preventing colorectal cancer.

If you have a family history of polyps or colon cancer, or you are experiencing blood in your stool, problems with digestion or abdominal pain, you may need a colonoscopy before age 50.

Your Colonoscopy

You will lie on your side, be sedated, and your doctor will slowly advance a colonoscope through your large intestine to examine the lining. Your doctor will examine the lining again as he or she slowly withdraws the colonoscope. The procedure itself usually takes 15 to 60 minutes, although you should plan on two to three hours for the admission process, preparation and recovery.

After a colonoscopy, your physician will explain the results of the examination to you, a family member or your designated representative. Because you have been sedated during the procedure, someone must drive you home and stay with you. Even if you feel alert, your judgment and reflexes could be impaired for the rest of the day.

Stryker® Mako® Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology is available

Technology is transforming the way joint replacement surgeries are being performed. We use the Stryker Mako® Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology for the following procedures:

  • Total Knee Replacement (TKR) - the most frequent surgery with this technology, the Mako robot offers the benefits of more precision and shorter recovery time
  • Partial Knee Replacement (PKR) - partial knee replacements might be an option for younger people, due to the ability to more precisely place the implant and provide a longer-lasting joint replacement

Here is how the Mako robot works to provide greater precision and better results:

  • Before surgery - A CT scan of your knee is used to generate a 3-D virtual model of your unique anatomy. This model is loaded into the Mako robot software and used by your surgeon to create your personalized pre-operative plan.
  • In the operating room - Your surgeon will use the Mako robot to assist in performing your surgery based on your personalized plan. The surgeon will guide the robotic arm within the pre-defined area once ready for implant, using the robot for more accurate implant placement and alignment that will ultimately lead to improved function.
  • After surgery - Your healthcare team will help get you back to your normal lifestyle and closely monitor your condition and progress.
