Our goal has always been complete transparency (no hidden costs) and to keep the cost of heria surgery to a realistic level, delivering friendly, specialist surgery at an affordable price.
The cost of surgery in many centres will be focussed around a general anaesthetic and the need for an in-patient bed which will often be charged at between £500-£600 per day (even if you are treated as a daycase). This significantly increases the cost but delivers no real benefit for individual patients.
Most patients are far better off having a local anaesthetic hernia repair in a day unit. Its safer, quicker, more comfortable and considerably less expensive. On average our patients spend only 2-3 hours in hospital and will travel home pain free.
Prices for hernia surgery will vary depending on whether you have a unilateral or a bilateral hernia and whether your operation is performed as a local or a general anaesthetic (usually if you need keyhole surgery).
We have a fixed fee of £1,720 for a unilateral inguinal hernia, umbilical, epigastric or femoral hernia under local anaesthetic, fully inclusive of all hospital, anaesthetic and surgical fees. There is no VAT on medical services.
An initial consultation with Mr Sadler over the phone is usually all that is needed, saving a trip to Oxford.
For a few patients with complex hernia problems or where there is doubt about the nature of the hernia and how it needs to be repaired an initial an outpatient consultation may be necessary.
