Once it has been established that you require an operation, our Operation Booking Co-ordinator will provide you with information on your operation details, estimated costs of your surgery and any out-of-pocket expenses. The estimated cost is not a quotation and hospital charges, Medicare and health fund rebates are subject to changes.
There will be separate costs for the Anaesthetist’s fees and hospital fees. Please check with your health fund regarding the level of your cover and the level of health fund rebate payable to you for the treatment, particularly for hospital fees.
Our Operation Booking Co-ordinator can also advise you regarding fasting times prior to surgery, accommodation, transport and directions to hospitals. It is important that you have an accompanying person with you on the day of your surgery.
If you are on any blood-thinning agents such as Aspirin, Warfarin, Plavix, or fish oil, it is important that you advise us so our Doctors can provide you with pre-operative instructions on whether to cease these medications.
