Umbilical Hernia patient AS Aug18
Apart from the absence of a "greeter" on arrival in the clinic.Everything else, excellent. The op under local anaesthetic was totally painless and quite entertaining! Mr. Sadler responded promptly to a telephone call I made some weeks after the op, which was very reassuring.
Inguinal Hernia Patient RD Aug 18
There was no pain at all after a few days, and even at the start very little. I just did the Paracetamol+Ibuprofen for 3 days though probably I did not need even that.
Inguinal Hernia Patient YB Aug18
A very impressive set up. Lovely premises, very charming staff, who kept me fully informed of what to expect, and was going on at the time. The operation was quick and straight forward, and my recovery was remarkably quick. I would not hesitate to recommend this clinic to anyone that can not wait for the NHS to carry out their operations.

Inguinal Hernia Patient AB Jul 2018
As a retired surgeon I asked around among my colleagues who provided the most reliable opinion in this area. I personally thought the service faultless and was very impressed. I have already recommended it to another who has used it.
Inguinal Hernia Patient TK Jul 18
I suffer from health anxiety and find it hard to trust people in the medical profession, particularly after a really bad previous experience. Everyone at the clinic went over and above to make me feel less anxious and at ease. The whole experience from start to finish was excellent and has helped to restore my confidence in all things medical. Due to my own issues I had some concerns after the procedure but Greg phoned me immediately and talked to me about all my concerns, which was exactly what I needed. I could go on waxing lyrically but suffice to say I am very happy with the whole experience. I cannot recommend all of Gregg's team highly enough.

I was very pleased with my umbilical hernia repair. I had a tangerine sized hernia for about four/five years which my GP said wouln't be treated on the NHS. As it was slowly getting larger I finally decided to get it sorted myself. The Oxford Hernia Clinic is only half an hour drive from home and they publish fixed prices for the surgery. I was able to get a cancellation, so less time to worry. When I arrived, it is a very efficient, professional team; checking of medical history, change into gown, brief consultation, mild sedative and anaesthetic, followed by the actual surgery, then biscuits, Coffee and a sandwich as you are monitored for any adverse reactions. I liked the fixed price, I was in and out within 2 hours. 20 mins consultation and pre checks, 10 mins sedation. 30 mins operation, and 20-30 minutes in recovery eating sandwich and biscuits. In the recovery area you will likely meet the next and preceding hernia patients as you work through the flow.Totally pain free for the homeward journey, and mildly uncomfortable for a few days, managed with ibuprofen. Mild discomfort for a few days, easily managed with the Ibuprofen and Cocodamol/paracetamol provided on discharge.

Outstanding treatment from Mr Sadler and Dr Stoneham - thanks so much. Found it hard to believe that I did not remember having the local anaesthetic, even though I was told I would not remember it. The operation itself was amazingly efficient and smooth, all the staff were lovely and gave clear, consistent advice re aftercare. Can't think of anything that could be improved upon - many thanks for excellent care.

I had an excellent experience of having a hernia repair at the Oxford Hernia Clinic. The procedure was carried out under local anaesthetic which was not at all painful. The team were professional and friendly. The information given was very helpful and gave me confidence in my aftercare at home. My wound healed perfectly. I would recommend this service to anyone needing a hernia repair.

Spigelian Hernia Patient AE July 17
It was a very good price in comparison to other hospitals, and I felt reassured because the surgeon has a very good reputation and has done over 5000 procedures.
Incisional Hernia Patient ET May 2016
No pain at all, just a bit of tenderness but was not uncomfortable or unmanageable. I chose Oxford Hernia Clinic for the quick turnaround time from consultation to surgery and the fact I could choose a date suitable to me. The most fantastic experience I have ever had in a hospital. I can honestly say there is nothing that can be improved. Extremely impressed from start to finish so a million thank yous.
