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.

    Listen, Hank.  That seems inordinately expensive and, to be honest with you, I don't know anything about the procedure.  I do know that there are other treatment modalities out there are pretty darn effective.  With due respect, you may want to look into them.

      Alan, you are right. There are many procedures out there that are more effective, even lower cost if paid by insurance. However, iTind is supposed to have almost zero side effects and pain due to its simplicity. It can be very appealing to some people. Nevertheless, for such a simple procedure, the quote I was given seem expensive. Motoman had one done for much less. Hank

      i didn’t tell you about all my travel costs, LOL!

      Airfare from west coast of USA for my wife and I, a weeks hotels, and meals. It wasn’t exactly a vacation. I pretty much just stayed in the hotel room for the five days the device was in, except for meals.

      I was just talking about procedure cost. Travel cost ? Same here, would also be from West coast of US. London clinic requires multiple post op visits which would make it worse. Hank

      It was supposed to be offered in Canada, but I could not find anywhere when I was looking 2 years ago. Maybe it has changed now.

      Are we still talking about iTind?  If so, it is available in Toronto.  Google Dean Elterman Toronto.

      As mentioned, it's in Toronto.   When I Google as I suggested, I get a sidebar on the right side of the page that includes info about the doc and a phone number.  Do you? I would call that number and start asking those questions!  Can't help you more than that.

      Let's see if this makes it through: "Dr. Dean S. Elterman is a Staff Urologist at the Toronto Western Hospital/University Health Network"
