In some cases your surgeon’s secretary has available pre-prepared quotes for your anaesthetic fee. If this has not been provided to you then you need to contact our rooms to obtain an estimate of what your anaesthetic will cost. Please do this as early as possible before your operation date.
Some of the surgical procedures are highly variable hence producing a generic quote is difficult. For these procedures please contact our rooms and secretary for a quote. The important information we need to produce an accurate quote is
- The surgeon.
- The date of surgery.
- The type of surgery.
- Any major medical conditions you may have.
- The estimated time of the surgery ( if the surgeon has told you ).
An attempt is made to provide as accurate a quote as possible based on previous experience of the same type of surgery . However some surgery can vary a lot in time and sometimes an operation can be significantly shorter than estimated. In these cases your final account will only be for the actual time your operation took rather than the original quote. Similarly if the operation takes significantly longer your account will reflect this.
At all times the quality and safety of your anaesthetic is paramount. Each anaesthetic is tailored to the individual, some patients will require more complex and lengthy interventions for their anaesthetic and others will require a more simple anaesthetic.
