The cost of surgery varies from institute to institute and from doctor to doctor, and also from place to place. In a major metro city, it may be worthwhile to consult a government hospital bone surgeon before going to a private surgeon, just to decide what kind of surgery is needed. In a private hospital, the cost may vary from 25 thousand INR to above this figure. Again, it also depends on what kind of surgery is needed.

Hi- My son was born with a white spot on his forehead and 5 weeks after birth he got another white spot on his belly button and on the 6th week after birth he got white spots on both legs from above the knee to his shin. Two months after my son was born, the spot on his forehead shrunk to the size of a quarter piece. We were sent to a dermatologist where he was diagnosed with Vitiligo. The dermatologist at the time said my son was very special because he was born with Vitiligo (the spot on his forehead). The dermatologist has now left her practice to do research and we had to see another dermatologist. After visiting the new dermatologist (3.5 years after my son s birth), she said we ve been treating him for the wrong skin condition. This new doctor said it is Piebaldism. None of my family or my husband s family have Piebaldism or Vitiligo. She wants to perform a blood test for Piebaldism, but I want to know what are the chances that it could be either or? and if I have another child will have either one? At this point, our dermatologist could not do a blood test because only a limited amount of labs can run a test like this, do you know what is needed? The doctor also said that whether my son has Piebaldism or Vitiligo it would be an usual case. Could it be something else?
