Program Cost

The program cost includes surgeon fee, assistant surgeon fee & all the services described in the “Thrive Program” section. It also covers ongoing support and monitoring – even after your first year.

Some patients may be able to use their Superannuation to cover part or all of the costs if they have the funds available. More information about the early release of super funds is available via the ATO Website.

Please note, we can’t guide you on this decision or give you financial advice on the best option for you – but we believe having information on all possible options is best.
