Why pioneering?

Because we use a combination of local anaesthetic and sedation, instead of a general anaesthetic, to repair the hernia so you can walk out of hospital within 2 hours of operation.

 We are open and booking private surgery this month.

Beat NHS waiting times. No delays. We aim to repair your hernia within 3 weeks of contacting us directly.

No GP referral needed

Why for all?

Because our ground-breaking use of local anaesthetic and sedation means vulnerable groups who are typically high risk under a general anaesthetic can be operated on safely and discharged within 2 hours of operation.

This means we can operate on adults of all ages and all health conditions confidently and successfully within weeks of contacting us.

Through our privately insured or self-funded surgery packages (costs starting from £3,500) and medical loan options available at each hospital, we offer an affordable, efficient and effective solution to hernia problems for adults of all ages.

Patient Reviews

“Once I finally got around to calling Hernia Clinic Hampshire, the rest was very easy. I enjoyed going private, I loved the speed that everything was handled at, I loved the more intimate environment of the clinic and the one to one consultations. Even though I waited many years to get my hernias looked at, in the end it was one of the most stress free things I’ve ever done. That was down to Mr James Kirkby-Bott and all of the wonderful staff.”

My surgery could be done much quicker than via the NHS, whose waiting list I’d been on for over a year, and I was more confident having surgery at a specialist hernia repair clinic.”

2022 Award for Kirkby-Bott

“I was very nervous about having an open surgery hernia repair under local anaesthetic, but Mr Kirkby-Bott assured me I would be very relaxed and not feel a thing and that is exactly how it went.

I’m now 5 weeks post-surgery and feeling great, I have to stop myself from over doing things sometimes as I forget I’ve had the surgery done. Can’t thank Mr Kirkby-Bott enough, he is outstanding in his field of surgery.”

– 44yr old male hernia patient

“My surgery was carried out within a few days of being seen, it gave me immediate hope for the start of recovery to better health and recovery without having to wait.

After over a year of uncertainty this was a godsend. I cannot praise everyone who looked after me enough. Thank you.”

“Fast, efficient & reassuring team. 4 months post op & I am back running 100 mile ultra marathons.”

“First class experience – excellent staff, care & attention. Plenty of good written information (& reminders) all along the way – impressive write up on Hernia Clinic Hampshire Website.”

“From the first consultation – through the lead up to the operation & the post follow up, I am so pleased I had it done. Now I can lead a better life.”
