Self Funded Obesity Surgery
Greenslopes Private Hospital will now allow for selected patients to undergo obesity surgery without private health insurance.
In addition to the doctor’s fees, the patient will have to pay for the hospital accommodation, Intensive Care Unit stay (if applicable), the theatre fee and for some of the surgical equipment used. The total cost for the patient may be in the order of $26,000 or more.
It is at Dr Greenslade’s discretion as to which patients would be medically suitable for this pathway. In general, this pathway would not be appropriate for those undergoing revisional surgery, due to the higher risk involved.
Please contact the rooms for more detailed information.
