Hernia repair

My sister-in-law has to go for a hernia repair, but she does not belong to a medical aid. Will it be cheaper to have this operation done by a public hospital than a private hospital? What will the costs be (+/-) please?

Dear Marlise
A public hospital will be cheaper for her but I am not sure about the costs - you can call your local provincial hospital and ask them? Often private surgeons have "sessions" at public hospitals, so ask your Gp to find out for you if there is someone like this in your area?
