Just wanted to let everyone know about our new office in Winter Garden, Florida. At my previous clinic, PUR Clinic, we were hospital employed and I decided to become independent and start our own new clinic: Avant Concierge Urology. Over the last several years, health care costs have really risen quite dramatically and many of our patients even with insurance are being priced out. I have really become frustrated with the rising costs at larger healthcare systems and decided that the only way to try to reduce costs is by trying to do more of our treatment options in office and ambulatory surgery type settings to try to control our overhead costs. We have partnered with Karl Storz from Germany and are building the first ever office based micro-surgical suites in the US. This new technology provides unparalleled microsurgical optical magnification and allows the surgeon 3D visualization on 55" digital high definition screens in an ergonomic fashion to allow for greater surgical ease during complex microsurgical procedures. This technology allows us to perform microsurgical cases in an office based setting with IV sedation or nitrous sedation, thus significantly reducing our overhead costs. I really believe in giving patients the financial benefit of lower overhead costs and thus, we have reduced the pricing on a number of our procedures:
Below is a listing of our new self pay pricing at Avant:
a) Vasectomy Reversal - total out of pocket charge is $3600 - includes surgery & IV sedation (we also offer nitrous sedation now for patients who do not want IV anesthesia)
b) Targeted blocks & cord blocks - usually covered by insurance, but if pt desires self pay pricing - $500 total out of pocket charge (includes nitrous sedation)
c) Targeted peri-cord or nerve cryoablation - usually covered by insurance, but if pt desires self pay pricing - $2600 total out of pocket charge (includes IV sedation), there is an additional $500 charge for the optional allogen injection
d) Targeted microsurgical denervation of the spermatic cord - usually covered by insurance, but if pt desires self pay pricing - $2750 total out of pocket charge (includes IV sedation), there is an additional $1000 charge for the optional cord bio-wrap
Our new clinic will be up & running 11/2/2020. However, we are offering telehealth consultations currently and I would be glad to talk to anyone interested in a telehealth consult. Hope this info is helpful.
