Knee Replacement Cost
Out of pocket expenses for Knee Replacement Surgery vary by thousands of dollars depending on your choice of surgeon and where you have surgery. There is no evidence that higher costs result in better outcomes for patients. It pays to shop around. I have always made sure that the my fees are reasonable and transparent. As a result I frequently treat patients from South Australia as well as those travelling from interstate and overseas who have done their research on pricing and quality.
An increasing number of people are choosing to "self insure" or pay for their own surgery, so they don't have to wait and can get back to full activity as soon as possible.
For Knee Replacement Surgery out of pocket expenses for self insured patients are approximately $17900
This includes all the private hospital, implant and surgical fees as well as the those for the anaesthetist, physiotherapist and physician who will assist with your care. A proportion of the doctors’ fees attract a rebate from Medicare.
This is an estimate only. If you would like a more accurate quote or further information then please contact my staff using the email form on this page at any time.
Private Health Insurance allows you and your family to access the right health services at the right time. You have control of your health care and can choose the provider, facility and timing of your treatment.
For Knee Replacement Surgery for privately insured patients I charge a gap of zero to $500 depending on the health fund.
I participate in the agreed gap arrangements of all private health insurance programs. My staff can also help with your claim for benefits, but we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company.
Other out of pocket expenses such as any excess and the gap for the anaesthetist will vary depending on your heath fund. If you would like a more accurate quote or further information then please contact my staff using the email form on this page at any time.
