How much will it cost?

As with most surgeries performed in a private hospital there are out-of-pocket fees. The amount depends on the surgery you have and - where you have private health fund cover - whether the treatment that is right for you, is included in that cover. Your specialist can give you an indication of out-of-pocket fees. Your private health fund will be able to advise whether your treatment is covered or not and any out-of-pocket fees.

No private health insurance?

If you don’t have private health insurance or you’re an overseas patient, you can choose to self-fund your surgery. Your specialist can talk to you about this option.
