Three steps are needed to book an operation date:
1. Choose a date with our online scheduler
2. Fill in the administrative form
After you have chosen a date you will be automatically forwarded to the administrative form. The hospital can not be booked without this information.
3. Pay your deposit
The chosen date will be reserved for you for 7 days to give you time to pay the deposit of 1000 euro. After you have filled in the administrative form you will be automatically forwarded to the payment detail page.
Bank details for payment operation
No you can’t. We only accept bank transfer or cash payment (bank notes).
We don’t accept payments for operations by Paypal. The only way to pay the operation is by bank transfer.
The average waiting time for an operation at the moment is two months. For big surgeries it can be a bit more, for small surgeries often less. You can check availability through our online operation planner
We don’t provide credit to patients. The full amount has to be paid before the operation. In banks you will find professionals that can judge if it is wise for you to take a credit. We understand you wish to have your surgery as soon as possible, but don’t underestimate the stress a too high financial obligation can cause.
The maximum in advance that can be booked is 6 months. We do this because we noticed a lot of things can happen in 6 months that disrupt planning (in the life of the patient but also in the life of the doctor).
Dates automatically open up 6 months in advance. So if you want to book a particular date, best is to schedule in your calendar to do this 6 months before this date. As the date is blocked for everybody, you don’t have the risk somebody else takes the date (you do have the risk Dr Bart van de Ven is on holiday).
If a letter of a medical doctor saying the patient really was not able to be operated because of physical illness, the surgery will be rescheduled without cost.
Yes, we can put you on a waiting list if you want. You will be contacted if someone cancels. In our practise this rarely happens by the way.
