My partner is off to get the snip next wek and we are being charged $250, we live in Biloela about 110 west of gladstone, qld. Does this sound right or should I look further into it?

My DH's was done last week. It cost $100 gap to the surgeon, but I am not sure if we will have to pay a gap for the anesthetist (sp?) as well. We have top private cover, so had no fees for hospital day surgey.
Is your cost for surgeon only? Or include day surgery fees and other stuff as well?

I thought they were done in a dr surgery w local anaesthetic.  Where have I been living?  Do you really have to go to hospital?  Better not tell DH that, it's possibly our choice in the future.

Hi Everyone

I am wondering if anyone can help me out, I am looking for the names of Dr's etc that do vasectomy reversals in Brisbane / or QLD that have a high sucess rate. My partner had a vasectomy done about 2 years ago from his previous marriage and we would like children together and are finding it hard to find someone to do it in QLD. Any ideas or suggestions will all be taken onm board. I cant wait to be a mum to children of my own.
Thanks heaps

Has anyone had a vasectomy lately in Brisbane?  My DH made some calls today and was quoted $325 and $350.  The $325 price was for the scalpel-free technique at the Marie-Stopes clinic in Salisbury.  Only problem was they only do them on Wednesdays and there is a 3 month backlog currently.  The other place was the Planned Parenting mob at Bowen Hills.  They have no waiting, but use the two incision scalpel technique.  

Are there any other places around?  Are these prices ok?  Is it possible to get it done at public hospital.  I've been recommended to have Mirena inserted to prevent further pg's, so perhaps they'll let DH have a snip instead....  He's keen.

My dh had his done at a public hospital as day surgery so it cost nothing for us as we're on a health care card and the initial appt with the surgeon was bulk billed.

I have  heard though that it's better getting it done under a local anaesthetic than a general wink.gif
