The Hernia Clinic provides a consultant-delivered, quality hernia repair service, where the most important person is the patient. It gives a 21st century solution to a condition that has been recognised for thousands of years.
Hernia problems are extremely common and are much more frequently seen in men. An active lifestyle or a job that may involve heavy lifting, or straining will increase the risk of developing a hernia. People of all ages may develop hernias and while some hernias may cause no symptoms, others patients might require urgent surgical intervention.
Signs and symptoms vary, depending on the site of the hernia problem.
