If the surgeon gave you a quote, which you accepted at the time, a contract came into existence. If the surgeon charged beyond to what was agreed to you may dispute the claim and defend same on the basis of breach of contract. I suggest that you consult an attorney. One issue that may be to your detriment is that you have made payments on the overcharged amount, which may be construed as an acceptance.
