Welcome to Dr. Parminder J. Singh’s Patient Guide to Total Hip Replacement in Melbourne.
Hip replacement is a highly effective and safe procedure that can reduce your pain and help you get back to your routine activities. However, Dr. Parminder Singh believes that to assist in your recovery following your hip replacement surgery, it is important for you to know about the surgery prior to arriving at either St Vincent’s Private East Melbourne, Epworth Eastern Private Hospital, Epworth Richmond Private Hospital, Waverly Private Hospital, or the Bays Hospital.
Cost of Hip Replacement Surgery
The overall cost of a hip replacement surgery is inclusive of the surgeon’s fees, hospital fees, anaesthetist fees, and surgical assistant fees.
Surgeon’s fees: Dr. Parminder Singh follows the Australian Medical Association’s (AMA) fee guidelines for all of his surgeries.
Hospital fees: This cost is covered entirely by your private health insurance. If you are uninsured, our staff will assist you with providing an estimated quote for your hip replacement surgery.
Anaesthetist and Surgical Assistant Fees: Dr. Parminder Singh has his own team of assistants and anaesthetists who also follow the AMA guidelines.
Following the consultation with Dr. Parminder Singh, a member of our staff will go over the specific costs associated with your hip replacement in Melbourne.
