How to access hernia surgery at Oaks Hospital

The first step is to obtain a referral to the Oaks Hospital Hernia Centre from your GP. This enables your consultant to gain as much insight into your medical history as possible.
During your initial consultation a complete medical history will be taken. You will undergo a thorough clinical examination and your surgeon will discuss options in treating your hernia.
