How much does a private hernia operation cost?

Our goal has always been complete transparency (no hidden costs) and to keep the cost of hernia surgery to a realistic level, delivering friendly, specialist surgery at an affordable price.

Self Funded Patients


We have a fixed fee of £2,490 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.

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 2-2.5 hours in hospital and will travel home pain free.

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 £600-£1,000 per day (even if you are treated as a day case). This significantly increases the cost but delivers no real benefit for individual patients.

An initial detailed consultation with Mr Sadler over the phone is usually 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 will be necessary.

Insured Patients

Mr Sadler and Dr Stoneham are both fully recognised by all insurance companies, however from March 2023 we have taken the decision to stop undertaking any insured hernia work.
