What are the costs for podiatric surgery?

Typically, the fees for a podiatric procedure are a combination of the surgical facility fees, the surgeons‘ fees, and the anaesthetists‘ fees.

The costs of different procedures vary considerably according to the complexity, length of stay and need for additional items such as surgical implants.

Your podiatric surgeon is obliged to give you an accurate estimate of these fees upfront, and prior to your surgery. Currently, Medicare rebates are not able to be claimed on the fees charged by the podiatric surgeon or anaesthetist, though the fees for your hospital stay and any surgical implants (eg pins and screws) may be claimed under private health insurance.
