For self funding patients, Mr Bhat is starting 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 at West Byfleet health centre.These procedures cost approximately £2000 in every other private setting. 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 £230.

Once the decision to proceed with out-patient surgery is made, it will be timed for a 30-45 minute slot selected Mondays or Saturdays. 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.
