Iron deficiency has been identified as a major health issue affecting all age groups.
Iron Infusion (Ferinject Infusion)
Iron is an important dietary mineral that is involved in various bodily functions, including the transportation of oxygen in the blood.
This is essential in providing energy for daily life. Iron deficiency results in depletion of the iron storage within your body, leading to fatigue, dizziness, shortness of breath and decreased immunity.
For eligible patients, an initial consultation is booked with the doctor.
Patients will be issued a script of Iron Infusion (Ferinject) to be purchased from their pharmacy.
A 45 minute appointment will then be booked for the procedure Patients should allow an hour which includes the iron infusion and a 30- minute observation time post infusion.
Patients with a current Medicare Card will, in addition to the cost of the Ferinject dose (purchased from the pharmacy), incur a $185.05 charge to cover procedural and consumable costs. A Medicare rebate of $75.05 is claimable, leaving an out-of-pocket cost of $110.
"Keeping your iron levels within the healthy limits is important."
As part of our professional services to patients, Watersprings Health Centre now offers micro-suction of the ear (aural toilet) to those who are eligible.
Many patients presenting with ear problems have a build-up of wax and debris in the ear canals.
These can be managed by using a suction technique under microscopic guidance. We also offer ear syringing which involves washing out of the ears with warm water.
Please book an initial appointment to discuss this with your doctor.
After assessment of your ears you will be required to book in for a 30-minute appointment for the procedure.
To maintain a high quality service, a fee will be applied. Please ask reception for further information on fees and available Medicare rebates for this procedure.
