I requested for iTind cost from London Clinic and below is there quote:

The fees are as follows:

Initial consultation with Prof Dasgupta : £300

Insertion of the iTind: £550

Removal of the iTind: £350

Anaesthetist: insertion £350, removal £250.

Hospital package fee: £5,940 (£2,000 included for iTind).

Follow up appointment with Prof Dasgupta: £170

Total price: £7,910.00

Two follow up appointments will be needed, 1st one month after removal, the 2nd six months later.

There may be scans required before a decision can be made to proceed with the iTind which will add additional costs.

    I paid less than 3000 euro last year to have it done in Madrid. There was no follow up needed. They may have changed their pricing, I don't know. 

    It didn't last for me.

      Hmmm. Maybe I should look at Madrid.  Do you have name of the facility ? Hank

      I don't remember the name offhand. I will look it up. But the Dr is  Fernando Gomez Sancha. He is excellent, and speaks very good English. He spent time in London. If you google him, you will find all kinds of info, and the hospital he works at. Is is Icua.es 

      He is a known expert in HOLEP as well. In fact, that is what he was recommending for me. I think the cost was 12000 euro for that.

      Thanks Moto. I'll look into it. I especially don't like the follow-up visits required by London clinic. Hank

      Motoman, sorry to read of the transitory effect of iTind.  I don't recall your mentioning how long it was effective, and I AM curious!   My Urolift was good for about 3 or 4 months, only.  Did you do better than that with iTind?

      I would say I got 3-4 months worth of good results. I had been in communication with the company afterward, and they thought maybe the device should have remained in longer. My prostate has been described as very "hard", but not large at 45 grams. 

      I had FLA in February and am still getting relief from that.

      HMMMM... I wonder if the hardness is a factor.  I too have a small prostate, last measured at 38 grams.  So maybe the same concern in my case.  SIGH!

      And has the company suggested a re-do?  

      Or are you satisfied with the FLA results?

      The company didn't suggest a redo, but I would not have been open to that anyway. 

      I think the Itind would be a good option for some people, but it was not easy for me due to the travel. If it was close to home, I would have tried it again. 

      I am am satisfied with the results of the FLA so far. Just wondering whether it will last or not.

      For $20K, the FLA had better last!  confused  I was interested until I read the price tag!  WOW!  And I wonder why Medicare won't cover it...

      Hi cartoon, is there still a special discount for someone that never had any procedure before ? Also, FLA John 😀 mentioned that his insurance did pay $4000 for FLA. Hank

      Hi Moto, before iTind and later before FLA, were you on any BPH drugs ? Did they help you ? Thanks. Hank

      I tried Flomax, Rapaflo, and Hytrin (Terazosin). I was on Hytrin the longest. It did help more than the others, but eventually the effectiveness diminished. 

      I am now taking Hytrin at times, but much less than before FLA. Now at 2 mg (if I take it), before FLA I was taking 10mg daily. It does help, but I have been off it for three weeks now, just seeing what things are like without it.

      I've read that if the meds help, (correct) procedures will help. If meds don't help at all, procedures most likely won't do any good. Hank
