Urological Specialists

At West Coast Urology we prefer our patients to familiarise themselves with the information regarding their procedure, and how to prepare themselves before and after surgery.

Following your consultation, our admin staff will book your procedure. During your consultation, Mr. Grills or Dr. McLeod will have explained the nature of the surgery you are having, including any potential risks and complications, and you will have signed a consent form.

At the time of booking your procedure, you will be provided with an Informed Financial Consent document which will advise you of Mr. Grills’ or Dr. McLeod’s surgical fee, the anticipated rebate from your Private Health Insurance fund and/or Medicare and approximately how much you will be out of pocket (gap payment).

Prior to your procedure, you will be contacted by the relevant hospital and the Anaesthetist who will also provide you with an estimate of their fees.

If you are required to have any pre operative tests, our staff will clearly explain where you are to have these, and when.

You will need to complete the hospital admission form given to you at the time of your consultation and return it to the hospital as soon as possible. The hospital will contact you closer to your scheduled procedure date to advise you of your admission time and fasting instructions.

For certain major procedures, Mr. Grills or Dr. McLeod will request that you have a pre operative appointment with one of our practice nurses – Rhonnie or Teresa. They will go through with you in detail, what can be expected before, during and after your surgery and they will also visit you whilst you're in hospital. Rhonnie or Teresa are also available to speak to you by telephone (03 5229 8550) during business hours, or you may contact them via email This email address is being protected from spambots.

If you require a pre operative appointment with our Geelong based Continence Physiotherapist, Becky Hollows, we will arrange that for you. For Warrnambool and Hamilton patients we will assist in arranging an appointment with local Continence Physiotherapists.
