For self funding patients, Mr Bhat has started a new service for minor operations such as carpal tunnel release, trigger finger release, De-quervain’s release, removal of lumps, etc as an out-patient procedure. These procedures cost approximately £2000  if performed in the operating theatre. Mr Bhat is now offering the same service at out-patients for a fixed cost of £850. There is no other private hospital in the country that offers such an attractive price for surgery carried out by an experienced consultant.

The process involves an initial consultation with Mr Bhat. This is essential so that he can ensure that there is no additional or alternative diagnosis. He will also explain the surgery, the risks, consequences of those risks, benefits, recovery and alternative treatments. The initial consultation is £200. If you have seen Mr Bhat on the NHS and your diagnosis was confirmed, it may be possible to skip the initial consultation.

Once the decision to proceed with out-patient surgery is made, it will be timed for a 30 minute slot between 12-2 pm on Wednesdays. You will not require to fast, stop medications or bring anything with you. If you are on blood thinning tablets, Mr Bhat will discuss them with you at initial consultation. In general, warfarin can continue if the INR is <4.
