The following fee structure is for self funding patients. These are the fees that will be charged by Dr Esdaile for performing the procedure. Each clinic also charges fees that apply to procedures that must be performed in a surgical room. This is independent of Dr Esdaile's fee and is a common practice in the private sector to cover for theatre costs, instruments, stitches, nurse fees etc. These fees can be discussed during your consultation depending on the procedure recommended and the location. If you have comprehensive insurance, pathology and clinic fees are usually covered by your insurance. We recommend that you check with your insurance in advance as to the level of your cover.
