Bank details for payment operation


Can I pay for my surgery at arrival using credit card or check?

No you can’t. We only accept bank transfer or cash payment (bank notes).

Can I pay my deposit with Paypal or credit card?

We don’t accept payments for operations by Paypal. The only way to pay the operation is by bank transfer.

How long is the waiting time to book an operation?

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.

Can I pay the money back on a monthly base?

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.

Why can I not book more than 6 months in advance?

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).

Attention: Operation can be booked until 6 months in advance. Take care, the software uses a formula where a month is always 30 days. So at certain times of the year this can produce almost a weeks difference to direct month date method of calculating a 6 months date ahead.

What if you are ill at the moment of the scheduled surgery?

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.

Can I be put on a waiting list to be contacted just in case someone cancels her surgery?

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.
