FAQ

What Pain Do You Treat?

We treat all sorts of pain—back pain, joint pain, headaches, abdominal pain. The only sort of pain we don’t treat is palliative care pain. If you have persistent pain, come and see us at The Pain Centre of Excellence.

What Are The Costs?

The Persistent Pain Program is fully covered by all private health insurance policies. Commonwealth Law mandates that hospital benefits are paid to any private hospital meeting “2nd tier requirements” (which this hospital does). Hospitals that meet this criteria may elect to charge a surcharge above this benefit, however we want to make the Persistent Pain Program as accessible as possible and therefore there is no surcharge payable.

There may be small out-of-pocket expenses only (e.g. for TV / WiFi).

WorkCover, DVA patients and patients covered by third party compulsory insurance may be covered—contact us for more details.

Do I Need A Referral?

Yes.

Patients are seen by a multidisciplinary team, including 2 medical specialists. Please ensure your referral covers both of these doctors:

  • Rehabilitation Physician – Dr Dionne Litton

AND

  • Pain Specialist – Dr Heide Feberwee

Referrals can be faxed to (07) 5503.0922.

Our Pain Program Coordinator will contact you to arrange an appointment with the doctors and give you more details about the Persistent Pain Program.
