In the United States the average cost of his replacement is $40,364. The same operation in Spain costs an average of $7,371. In other words, I could literally... Fly to Spain, get my hip replaced, Live in Madrid for two years, learn Spanish, Run with the bulls, get trampled by the bulls, Get my hip replaced again and fly home all for less than the cost of single hip replacement in the US.
