Important note

The goal of Human Microbiota Transplant (HMT) is to help rebalance the gut microbiota, which may alleviate some of the symptoms of a GI-related condition. Irritable Bowel Syndrome is a medical condition, which should be treated underneath the supervision of a medical doctor. Any adjustment to medication or prescriptions must be discussed with your supervising doctor. It is essential, therefore, for clients to obtain a referral letter before symptom-specific treatment can begin.

Pricing Overview:

  • Five dose program, capsule delivery: HK $28,800 (approx USD $3,670)
  • Ten dose program, capsule delivery: HK $37,800 (approx USD $4,815)
  • First dose colonoscopy, additional: HK $11,000 (approx USD $1,400)

The cost of recruiting and testing healthy donors is very high. Though the procedure may seem simple, the operational cost for maintaining a safe and excellent stool donor program is high, and comparatively, this pricing is lower than other fecal microbiota transplant centers around the world.

Some patients may be eligible for discounts on these prices. Please email or call to inquire for further discount pricing.
