Dr Gallagher is a private surgeon who operates in private hospitals only. Queensland Knee Surgery Clinic accepts only insured patients with hospital cover due to the prohibitive hospital costs without private health insurance.

Dr Gallagher performs a limited number of arthroscopic and reconstructive sports surgery procedures under No Gap or Known Gap (between $400 – $500 out of pocket) arrangements with some health funds. Patients are requested to liaise with our Front Office staff regarding these arrangements. Dr Gallagher does not perform joint replacement surgery under these arrangements and patients should expect an out of pocket cost of approximately $4,000 excluding anaesthetist and hospital fees.

Dr Gallagher does NOT perform medicolegal assessments nor does he see patients under medicolegal arrangements.

Should you have any insurance documentation required to be completed by Dr Gallagher, please complete as much of the information required as you can and then pass on to our Front Office Staff on arrival at your appointment and they will ensure it is authorised by Dr Gallagher in a timely fashion.
