We are a private facility and our surgeon works outside of RAMQ (non participating physicians within the meaning of the health act). This means that patients must pay all costs.
We offer a turn-key cost for our surgeries, meaning that you will not pay more than the price listed below. Our cost includes everything from surgery to care, start to finish. The only additional expense incurred to you are travel expenses to arrive at our facilities.
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.
