* These fees also only correspond to Dr McCaffrey’s (the surgeon’s) fees. Your health fund may charge you a hospital ‘Excess’ payment, and an anaesthetist will usually bill an out-of-pocket gap the same as the surgeon’s fees. Depending on the complexity of the case (for most ‘Major cases’) an ‘Assistant Surgeon’ will also be involved, with out-of-pocket gaps often between $300-600.
