Vasectomy costs – how it works
If you would like to book your vasectomy please read, print and fill out the relevant information in the following forms.
Following this, please call us on (07) 5441 1455 to book in for your vasectomy. Our staff can help you schedule your procedure and organise your $100 booking deposit to be taken. You are required to give 7 days notice for the cancellation of your vasectomy appointment. If you cancel your appointment without the required 7 days notice, the booking fee of $100 is non-refundable.
Of course, if you prefer to discuss your procedure first, please book an initial consult. For the Sunshine Coast Clinic this can be done online (select Dr Matheesha Ranaweera as your practitioner) or over the phone through Nambour Clinic Family Medicine. Patients who wish to book in Gympie can book through The Gympie Clinic It is usually helpful for men to come with their respective partner. This initial consult is bulk-billed.
We understand that you may need to make alterations to your booking. If you intend to alter your booking please contact us by phone to the clinic you have booked with. Nambour Clinic Family Medicine is open on weekends (Saturday 0800 – 1200 and Sunday 0800 – 1000). Just contact the staff on (07) 5441 1455 if you would like to alter your booking.
The No-Scalpel Vasectomy costs $350 out of pocket. Our facility has Medicare easy claiming so you can get the medicare rebate straight back into your bank account.
If you request to have a no-needle vasectomy, there may be additional charges. If a few patients are having a no-needle vasectomy on the same day, this may be offered to you at no additional charge. Information about this technique can be found in our information on the procedure.
Sperm counts and pathology costs
Each pathology provider has their own costs for analysing sperm counts after your vasectomy. This can vary from $40-50 out of pocket. The two main labs used are QML and Sullivan Niccolaides Pathology. Dr Ranaweera has no affiliation with either laboratory.
Vasectomy cost vs cost of raising another child
Having a vasectomy is a personal decision for a man and their respective partner. If you do not want any more children then it is likely that a number of different factors have made you come to this decision. Financial planning may be one of these factors. It is estimated that the average cost of raising a child in Australia is more than $400000 and climbing. Therefore, considering how effective, safe and affordable it is, a vasectomy may prove to be a very worthwhile investment.
