Hernia Surgery Information
All the information you need to make an informed choice about hernia surgery is within HerniaClinicHampshire.com and is part of the consenting process. If after reading this a couple of times you still have questions about your hernia repair please email them to us prior to your surgery so we can answer them and make sure you are comfortable with and understand what you are agreeing to and why.
We will go through a consent form and both sign what we have agreed to on the day of surgery, but you must not leave it to the day of surgery to feel informed about your decision. If you decide against surgery you need to appreciate the consequences of that decision too.
