Welcome to Parminder J Singh’s patient guide to Total Hip Replacement. To help assist in your recovery following your hip replacement surgery, it is important for you to know about the surgery prior to you arriving at either St Vincent’s Private East Melbourne, Epworth Eastern Private Hospital, Epworth Richmond Private Hospital or Waverly Private Hospital.
The overall cost of a hip replacement surgery is inclusive of the surgeon’s fees, hospital fees, anaesthetist and surgical assistant’s fees.
Surgeon’s fees: Dr. Parminder J Singh follows the Australian Medical Association ( AMA ) fees 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 surgery
Anaesthetist and Surgical Assistant Fees: Dr. Singh has his own team of assistants and anaesthetists who also follow the AMA guidelines.
Following your consultation with Dr. Singh, our staff will go through the exact cost of your surgery in detail.
This guide is designed for patients who have already decided to have joint replacement surgery. Every patient and every operation is unique and therefore this guide will not be able to answer all your questions. This guide is not a substitute for obtaining medical advice from your surgeon. However, this guide may assist you to get a better understanding of what to expect and it may help you think of questions to ask Mr Parminder Singh. If this patient information guide does not answer your questions, remember that Mr Parminder Singh will do his best to do so at your consultation. Mr Singh and his surgical team will practice in accordance with the ethical standards defined by the Australian Medical Council.
