Fees for a surgery

Once you’ve met with the surgeon, if a procedure is needed and you decide to be operated at the Centre, you will receive a quote detailing the fees associated with completing the surgery.

Fees can vary for the same surgery from one patient to the next depending on additional expenses related to supplemental examinations or post-operation needs, which sometimes vary from one patient to another depending on their medical profiles.


You can pay the surgical fees by credit card. You can also finance your surgery through companies such as Medicard or Medical Credit, see their website for additional information.
