Bilateral Hernia patient AT Mar 2019
" Went to Oxford because of the good reviews and cost, everything went perfect on the day, I had been concerned prior to my operation having cancelled a previous one with the nhs but spoke to Mr Sadler and he convinced me to go ahead with the procedure. I was also concerned about post op pain but had minimal discomfort on the day of the op (Friday) and by the Saturday just a day after I was no longer taking pain medication, this hospital is by far the best place to come if you have any hernia issues and I would not hesitate to use them again.

" I was in severe hernia pain and the NHS could only offer me waiting times of months. OHC offered me an op within a week. Although I had to pay for the op myself, I'd do it again to be pain free in the shortest possible time. 2.5 months on, I am pain free and fully recovered. "
Inguinal Hernia Patient FA Feb2019
" Was so pleased I chose the Oxford Hernia Clinic for my inguinal hernia repair. Everyone on the team was friendly, professional and clearly knew exactly what they were doing. No pain at all during surgery and I was pleasantly surprised at how little pain there was post-surgery when the local anaesthetic wore off. Five weeks later and I'm pretty much back to normal - just an occassional twinge. Started some gentle exercise after three weeks with no problems and now gradually inceasing frequency and intensity. Aiming to get back to full fitness by around week 10. "

" I can't praise the whole team enough, everyone so effortlessly efficient, all totally focused on the job in hand, seamless. To see Mr Sadler at work was amazing, so adept and dexterous, obviously I was a little trepidations at first, I had taken the cheapest job on offer out of desperation, I had an enormous hernia and this was my last chance to get back to work before penury, it had to go well. Within the first minutes I was totally at ease, I am a bricklayer of 45 yrs and I can tell a good one just by the way he takes his tools out.To my amazement I had that exact feeling as soon as Greg went to work, you could just tell you were in the hands of a master at the top of his profession. No pain at all, I mean none. I have had more trauma at the dentist. I mean this totally sincerely, I took the cheapest I could find and I found a service you could not better no matter how much you paid. State of the art. I cannot express my heartfelt gratitude enough for what Greg did for me "

" I would like to make it clear that anybody who has a Inguinal Hernia to have it Surgically Treated by an experienced Surgeon as soon as possible and don't allow it to get larger. I wore various Trusses which helped initially . My Inguinal Hernia over 18 months got larger eventually pushing into my scrotum and I suffered from Flatulence pain and digestive issues .I honestly thought I had some sinister problem. Now having endured some initial pain for about a week after the Operation I feel great and am a very satisfied patient. "

" I am a nurse myself and understand a little about this procedure. I searched the internet for a team that best suited my needs. I found Oxford Hernia Clinic to be outstanding. Both pre and post operation care. The procedure was painless. All staff are committed to your welfare. The following days after surgery were surprisingly almost painless too. I would highly recommend this team. I suffered for a year, I can now do all the things I could do before my hernia, like Yoga! Thank you all! "

Inguinal Hernia Female AY Sep 2018
" Everything on the day of the procedure and most things after went exactly as described. In particular, I was sceptical that the sedative would stop the pain from the injections without making me sick, but it did.I was particularly concerned because an acquaintance had terrible pain after his surgery and discomfort for months. After some reading from various sources, I concluded that the best method was open mesh repair using open surgery without staples or stitches (using pro-grip mesh), and I am not aware that this is currently possible on the NHS. Also, I was fairly inactive in the last month before the surgery, so by saving probably three months waiting time I gained three months of active life. "

Umbilical Hernia patient AS 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 RA July 2018
" 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. "
Femoral Hernia Female Patient GL 0618
"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 would recommend this service to anyone needing a hernia repair. "
