    Default Laparoscopy Needed. Any surgeons that you can recommend in Sydney

    I need laparoscopy for suspected Endometriosis before I start my next IVF cycle. Are there any surgeons in the western suburbs of Sydney that are good. What are the costs involved and how long is the waiting list if I were to go in the public hospital?

    I had one done in December before IVF. I am seeing Dr Sonya Jessup (Liverpool, but also has a practice at Hurstville) which is both a gynaecologist and fertility specialist. I have found her quite nice and helpful too.
    I think the fees were about $2300 before medicare claim plus the anaethestist, this was going privately though - and I had it done a week after my consult with her.

    I have no idea about the weight list in the public system but generally they go by urgency of condition for how long you wait - ie. if you have lots of trouble they might get you in earlier as apposed to someone who is asymptomatic
