Frequently Asked Questions

How much will my surgery cost?

Mr. Vellore  is registered as a no-gap doctor with most major health funds. However, there may be some procedures that will incur a gap. These will be discussed with you prior to any treatment.

Are there any additional costs?

You may get a bill from the anaesthetist involved in your surgery.

The surgical assistant fee is usually covered by your health fund in most cases. You should check with the private hospital if your health fund will cover the cost of your hospital stay.

What if I don’t have private insurance?

Mr Vellore practices in the public as well as private sectors. You can still see Mr Vellore in the rooms, but if surgery is needed, it may be done in a public hospital and not necessarily by Mr Vellore.

Some uninsured or overseas patients can choose to pay for their surgery in the private hospitals. We can help with obtaining quotes from the hospital that you are going to.

Will I be in pain after surgery?

Mr Vellore’s expert team of anaesthetists and physicians will ensure optimal post-operative analgesia during your recovery from surgery. Most neurosurgical procedures are well tolerated with minimal discomfort.

Will I need rehabilitation after surgery?

Most patients do not require inpatient rehabilitation. However after certain complex procedures, a small period of inpatient rehabilitation may be required. Patients find this is often beneficial for themselves as well as for family members. This will be arranged for you and is usually covered by your health fund.

What if there is a medical emergency?

For urgent medical problems we ask that you report to the nearest Emergency Department.
