Paying For Fibroid Surgery

Q: I realize this is an unconventional email. Do you know where I can have my fibroid removed free or for a nominal charge? Perhaps I can do something in exchange. Make a commercial, write a book, be a guinea pig on a video -- I have many talents, but only state insurance and no decent doctor seems to want to accept it. I have researched every method and have decided on a myomectomy with the bikini incision. I found a great doctor, but the surgery is over 22 grand. Thanks for any clue you can provide,

Sincerely, L.N.

Dr. Donnica:
Sorry I can't give you any specific advice, but you might try going to the nearest teaching hospital -- one affiliated with a major university. They usually have clinics that accept state insurance and the OB-Gyn residents would operate on you under the supervision of their attending physicians. Just find the nearest teaching hospital, ask for the Obstetrics and Gynecology Department and explain your needs to the receptionist who answers. Yes, I myself have done this for major surgery. You're not a guinea pig under those conditions, in fact, you often get better care.

With best regards and hopes for a good outcome,
