Hernia

Last year we performed more than 300 hernia operations both privately and for the NHS, with excellent results.

The Aberdeen Clinic works with some of the most experienced hernia surgeons in the UK and you can be assured that you will receive the best treatment, at a time to suit you and at a lower cost than you may think.

Our aim is to ensure safe and effective treatment for your hernia to get you back to normal activities as quickly as possible.

Process

At the Aberdeen Clinic you don’t need to wait to be seen – one of our team of specialist surgeons will see you within days of being referred. At the initial consultation we will confirm the diagnosis and advise on the best treatment for you and your lifestyle.

In many cases treatment can be arranged for the same day or at a time to suit you. The Aberdeen Clinic offers the latest techniques designed to ensure safe and effective repair of the hernia and the shortest recovery time.

Different techniques are better suited for different patients’, but we offer all of the following options:

  • Local anaesthetic repair
  • Suture-less mesh repair
  • Sutured repairs (without mesh)
  • Keyhole repairs

There has been a lot of discussion about the safety of mesh in hernia repair. Our feeling is that the evidence would indicate that mesh is safe in most hernia surgeries and offers significant benefits over alternative means of repair.

Surgery can be done under a local anaesthetic or a general anaesthetic dependent upon your wishes and also the type of repair.

Recovery is about more than just the surgery and we offer support in getting patients back to normal activity as soon as possible, irrespective of whether they are a professional sports person or have a less active lifestyle.  Someone is always available at The Aberdeen Clinic to answer any queries and to help with recovery.
