The Hernia Clinic

The Hernia Clinic at Spire South Bank Hospital in Worcester with clinics in Droitwich and Malvern, offers patients the option of laparoscopic (key hole) or open surgery for hernias in a modern and clean hospital environment.

Available closer to home and at a lower cost
than you think

The Hernia Clinic offers full diagnosis and investigation of abdominal masses to exclude serious conditions. Our Consultants are broadly trained in all aspects of abdominal surgery and are therefore able to manage other conditions that mimic hernias.

There are two ways to surgically repair a hernia:

Laparoscopic (key hole) surgery

Two or three cuts will be made to your abdomen, through which a tube-like camera will be passed to enable your surgeon to view the hernia. Special surgical instruments are then used to repair the hernia and a synthetic mesh is used to strengthen the abdominal wall.

Advantages to this type of surgery are as follows:

  • quicker procedure
  • can be done as a day-case procedure
  • less pain following surgery
  • smaller scars

Open surgery

A single incision of around 5-10cm is made in the groin and the bulge is pushed back into place. A mesh is used to support the area. The skin is then closed using dissolvable stitches.

Local anaesthetic or general/spinal anaesthetic can be used in this particular procedure.
