Free Market Medicine at Lakes Foot & Ankle Associates

Lakes Foot and Ankle Associates is proud to practice the principles of Free Market Medicine. But what does this mean for our patients?

What is Free Market Medicine?

As members of the Free Market Medical Association, we at Lakes Foot and Ankle Associates believe in offering the highest standard of care to our patients, with as much price transparency as possible. We believe in working to build a market for medical care where competitive pricing is the norm, which is why we created a cash pay surgery center that offers transparent online pricing.

Transparent online pricing simply means that we provide online pricing lists for our surgical procedures. This list is available at our dedicated Lakes SurgiCare website, at* We think our patients should know the cost of their treatment before they ever step foot in our office, and should feel confident they are getting the value they deserve for the price they pay. Feel free to peruse this list before coming into our office. We are happy to answer any questions you may have about how the procedures are priced.

What is a Cash Pay Surgery Center?

A cash pay surgery center like Lakes SurgiCare Center offers patients the option to pay in cash for their procedures. This is part of our mission to make medical care as transparent and accessible as possible.

No matter what way you slice it, free market medicine is the next big thing in the medical field. Every doctor should want their patients to feel confident that the price they pay is reasonable and competitive, so they can make their own decisions about which surgical center is right for them.
