All surgical procedures carry some amount of risk and only a specialist can advise whether surgery is right for you. Before agreeing to any treatment, make sure you understand what’s involved and any possible side effects and risks. It’s vital that you seek specialist medical advice that’s right for your circumstances.

How much will it cost?

Surgeries and treatments performed in a private hospital involve an out-of-pocket fee. The amount will depend on the surgery or treatment 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 will be able to give you an indication of out-of-pocket costs.

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.
