There is an enormous amount of information on the internet about hernias. Not all of it is accurate, and much of it is written by non-experts.Â Indeed some are not even surgeons , but get their information from other people's websites or out of date books.
After more than 20 years of repairing hernias I have heard most of the questions that patients ask and have a good idea of what they both want and need to know.
This website provides you with all the information that you need to help you make an informed decision about surgery for your hernia, and also tells you what actually happens when you have your operation.
If you go ahead with an operation my aim and the aim of my team is to give you the most appropriate repair and the easiest recovery; and to make your experience as pleasant, straightforward and safe as possible.
If you have any other questions about hernias that you would like answered â€“ and you cannot find it on this website - please email me. If you think of any way in which this website can be improved, or any other sections I should include, I would be grateful for your comments.
