Why for all?
Because our groundbreaking 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 6 hours of arrival.
This means we can operate on all ages and all health conditions confidently and successfully.
Through our self-pay and privately insured surgery packages starting from £2,999, we offer an affordable, efficient and effective solution to hernia problems for all ages.
I am extremely grateful to Mr Kirkby-Bott and his team for managing to arrange an urgent operation for my hernia. It had become very painful and was preventing my ability to work, so it was with a great sense of relief when I received news of a date for my operation. From my initial consultation through to discharge from the Spire Hospital in Southampton, the level of care and professionalism was exceptional. I felt reassured at every point and followed the thorough preparations laid out before my admission.
I was able to be discharged shortly after my operation after a further consultation with Mr Kirky-Bott and I found this to be of great benefit. I really can’t thank or praise the whole team enough. It has had a life-changing positive effect for me and enabled me to continue helping others through my volunteering efforts during the COVID pandemic. I am eternally grateful.
Thank you so much

Knowing about his skill and care earlier would have saved me a lot of unnecessary hernia pain. Op under local anaesthetic a revelation, easy recovery. Great. Would I recommend this doctor? Yes Five stars for all the staff.
The private inguinal hernia operation performed under local anaesthetic with minimal disruption to a frail 82 year old man with a leaky heart valve was a great success. If only everyone who needed this operation
could be treated this way.
Mr Kirkby-Bott was very understanding of the situation and his patience in explaining details much appreciated. His aftercare advice was clear and very effective.
Having previously been advised by other surgeons that no hernia operation could be carried out until heart surgery had taken place, which did not because of COVID-19, to now be pain free is fantastic.
