    Costs of NEC Treatment

    The price of treating necrotizing enterocolitis and increasing an infant’s survival chances regularly reaches the hundreds of thousands. Two studies were done estimating the costs of surgical NEC treatments, one estimating it to be between $400,000 to $500,000 and the other being between $300,000 to $660,000 factoring in hospital costs. Both of these studies focus on laparotomy and peritoneal drainage surgeries.

    However, there is still no guarantee an infant will survive even if they receive these surgeries. Studies show children who underwent peritoneal drainage had an early mortality before 29 days of age with those who received laparotomy or both surgeries experience a late mortality (after 29 days).
