Surgery Costs

Generally, the overall fees for surgery includes several components:

  • Dr Damon Thomas’ fee which includes the routine post-operative follow-up (six weeks).
  • Surgical assistant fee
  • The anaesthetist’s fee.
  • Costs/theatre fee.
  • Pathology (where applicable).
  • Others (e.g. cost of implants, prosthesis, etc.).

Surgical Fees

  • For privately insured patients, your private insurance will generally cover part of your surgeon’s fees.
  • The remainder, also known as the “gap”, covers the costs of providing specialist healthcare that Medicare and private insurance rebates do not cover.
  • The amount of the “gap” varies depending on the nature and complexity of the surgery. In all instances, a written estimate is provided prior to the procedure being scheduled.
  • In the case of emergency or out of hours surgery a formal quote if often not possible and an invoice will be forwarded for the surgical and assistant fees after the procedure has been performed
  • We would strongly recommend all patients check with their private health fund to establish whether other costs apply.

Cosmetic Procedures

  • For certain cosmetic procedures (e.g. facelifts, lower eyelid surgery), no rebates are provided by either Medicare or your private health fund.
  • In these cases, a written estimate will be provided prior to the procedure being scheduled.
