Harbour Spine Surgeons is a strong advocate for transparency and fairness in medical fees.

Consultation fees

The cost of office consultation is advised in writing at the time of booking.

Surgery fees for privately insured patients in private hospitals

Should you require surgery, you will be advised of the relevant fees in writing, including costs pertaining to anaesthesia. We will provide a comprehensive cost estimate to the best of our ability – surgery itself is stressful enough without having to worry about unknown or unexpected costs!

Many routine spine surgeries are covered under the Gapcover Known-Gap scheme, where out-of-pocket costs are limited to a maximum of $500.

Complex deformity and reconstructive surgeries may incur additional out-of-pocket costs, which will be advised in writing prior to booking.

Surgery fees for privately insured patients in public hospitals

Private patients admitted to public hospitals are covered under the Gapcover No-Gap scheme.  This means patients admitted to Royal North Shore Hospital, Children’s Hospital Westmead, Westmead Hospital, St George Hospital and The Sutherland Hospital as private patients will incur no out-of-pocket expense relating to the services of our surgeons.
