Consultations Before Surgery
To support patients during COVID-19, Dr Gately and Dr McLeod are offering free (bulk billed) initial assessments via telehealth for patients referred by their GP and with a BMI over 35 (calculate your BMI with our simple calculator).
Our fee for any subsequent consultation is $100, though they are not normally required.
For a primary procedure (i.e. not revisional) and all post-operative care, our fee is $5,800. This covers the cost of:
- Our surgeon performing the procedure
- The surgical assistant who is also a Doctor (with experience in surgical assisting)
- As much post-operative contact as is necessary with our surgeon (which usually involves 4-6 appointments)
- 12 months of dietetetic care post-surgery at Sea Change
Please note that our fee does not include the anaesthetist’s and hospital’s fees.
For revisional surgery, costs will be determined on a case-by-case basis.
We see and operate on insured and uninsured patients. If you are uninsured, you may be able to access your superannuation to fund your weight loss surgery.
