Costs


We are a private facility and our surgeons work outside of RAMQ (non participating physicians within the meaning of the health act). This means that patients must pay all costs.

Consultation fees

Patient type Cost
New patient consultation (free for those who choose to have surgery with us) $250
Returning patient after 6 months post surgery: $100

Surgery fees

Please note these costs reflect the complexity of the case, the surgical equipment, and hospital and operating room costs at the time of surgery. This also accounts for the additional equipment and protocols necessary for safety measures against COVID-19.
