If surgery is recommended, this will be fully explained and any alternatives discussed. All our patient care is based on informed consent. We will make sure you are well informed and very comfortable to progress with surgery before we book anything in.
Our breast surgeons have regular theatre lists at our location within the Epworth Cliveden Private Hospital. Epworth Cliveden is a boutique hospital with full surgical care and operating theatre, enabling good communication with the Melbourne Breast Unit downstairs. Cliveden is recognised by all medical insurance companies but it is important that you confirm your eligiblity for the procedure with your insurer.
Every patient will be given an estimate for the fees for any surgical procedure which allows the patient to know about the out of pocket costs. You will also be given an estimated length of hospital stay.
