The entire process was stress-free and surprisingly speedy. I left the Hospital two and a half hours after reporting in at 8 a.m.! People are apprehensive about undergoing a surgical procedure, I was, but the professional attitude of the OHC team and particularly the telephone conversation with Mr Sadler before the surgery put me at ease. On the day, everything that had been promised was experienced, a relaxed approach, painless and stress-free surgery, quick recovery and very little post-operative discomfort. I paid for the procedure myself; money well spent. Thank you Greg Sadler and the team.

All round the Oxford Hernia Clinic provides an excellent service, I was especially grateful for quite a short wait. The nurse who did the initial checks was very kind and good at keeping me calm. I chose OHC because of the verbal recommendation I received. Mr Sadler's reputation as a very experienced surgeon. The excellent leaflet that explains everything that is due to happen very well.
Inguinal Male Patient Jan 2021
My abdominal hernia repair in 2019 went very well so I contacted the clinic when my inguinal developed in 2020. I was reassured when I discovered the same team were still offering hernia repair on a day surgery basis.
Inguinal Hernia Patient Nov 2020
Reputable surgeon who absolutely delivered what was promised. His knowledge was so great that the diagnosis was done on the phone precisely. Magnificent treatment
Inguinal Hernia Patient Feb 2021
I chose OHC for their high level of detail on the website regarding the procedure, what to expect, how it would be performed and why. Also the fact that it is done under local anaesthetic and a quick turnaround procedure. Honestly everything was first class, couldn't fault it one bit
Ingunal Male Patient Dec 2020
It was as excellent as a surgical experience could be: Mr Sadler was informative and reassuring, my life has much improved as a result of this surgery and I had no idea until now that abdominal surgery was possible under local anaesthetic.
Umbilical Hernia Male Patient YW April 2019
My overall experience was excellent. Throughout the process I was made to feel very comfortable. I travelled from North Wales in the morning to have the procedure and was back home by 2pm. I travelled home completely pain free.
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.
Inguinal Hernia Patient MM Mar 2019
It was so good to be treated promptly and with reassurance and care by the team. Thanks for your help, I am now fully recovered, have enjoyed my planned holiday in Tenerife and am back volunteering at the National Trust.
Umbilical Hernia Patient AN Mar 2019
The whole team worked well together. Both the surgeon and anaesthetist were reassuring, and professional, and the theatre staff relaxed and clearly competent. It was also good to find a choice of food and drink available post after the operation.
Bilateral Hernia Patient BY Mar 2019
Excellent booklet explaining operation, follow up, pain relief etc. Also detailed telephone explanation from surgeon beforehand.
Inguinal Hernia Patient JS Mar 2019
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
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!
Umbilical Hernia Female Patient RM Oct 2018
I was very satisfied with the whole procedure. Everyone was very kind. Greg Sadler explained everything to me and rang me back to answer a query after my procedure. I felt in safe hands. An extremely efficient service. I would definitely recommend.
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.
Bilateral Inguinal Hernia Patient RT Sep 2018
The service at Oxford Hernia Clinic was in my view superb. From my view there isn't any thing you could do better.
Umbilical Hernia patient AS Aug18
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.
Femoral Hernia Female Patient AY Jan 2018
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.
Femoral Hernia Female Patient NN Jan 2018
Overall a big 9/10. Could not fault Mr Sadler and his medical team who repaired my very large epigastric hernia. 15-20 min,s. Remember,, If a hernia ruptures in your neighbour hood, Who you gonna call Greg Sadler
Epigastric Hernia Patient ES Dec 2017
I would recommend anyone needing a hernia repair to go to this clinic.
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.
Epigastric Hernia Patient FH July 2016
Friendly efficient service from all staff involved. Full explanation given at every step of the procedure, including what to expect in terms of recovery.
Spigelian Hernia Patient CW Jan 2018
I chose Oxford Hernia Clinic because they were able to fit me in for the operation in the time frame that I wanted.
