    It is now 3 weeks since my operation and all is going to plan (exactly as you said it would), with no complications or problems whatsoever.

    I have been trekking in the hills each day for the last week and have started running again after a gentle build up without any problems or restrictions.

    Once again many thanks for your care and attention and please extend my best wishes to your team.

    I now look forward to some good mountains in the near future. You made this possible.

    Never in history has a surgeon done a 100% operation ie. complete perfection in both the operation and recovery. Thanks to the Almighty, I am that man.

    As soon as the operation was completed, I had no pain whatsoever, I had complete movement immediately after the operation, could tie my shoelaces, bend down without any pain, etc. i even danced in my room.

    I cannot thank you enough. The surgeon was SUPERB together with the other members of the team. The nurses were suberb. basically, I am your best advert to the public/outside world. It was awesome. In fact, it was as if I never had an operation!!!! Everyone in my community couldn’t believe my miraculous recovery, etc.

    Keep up the great work. The best deserves the best, I am more than prepared to spread the word worldwide. Don’t blame me when you will expand so greatly, you won’t be able to cope!!! I owe it to you.

      We suppose this could be described as a ‘satisfied customer’.

    I had surgery about 6 months ago to repair an Inguinal Hernia which had become very large over some 2 1/2 years following diagnosis by my G P. My local hospital said that I needed surgery, but I was simply left on the waiting list. It was seriously affecting my life, limiting what I could do, and I was in considerable discomfort.

    I decided that I would have the procedure done privately by the British Hernia Centre, and consider it the best decision I have ever taken.

    Weeks after the surgery I was able to do a cross country walk of around 15 miles without any problem. I am 67 years old, and I suspect this is the reason that my local hospital did not treat my case with any degree of urgency.

    I have nothing but praise for the surgeon and nurses at the British Hernia Centre who treated me. Thank you all.

    At the age of 86, I discovered a hernia on the left side of my abdomen, probably caused by overdoing deadlifts at the gym. It was the first health problem I had encountered for over 20 years. In some despair I typed “hernia” on my computer and found The British Hernia Centre. It was, for me, an answer to prayer.

    I telephoned the Centre on Friday, there was a cancellation the following morning and by Saturday evening I was home again with the procedure completed.

    I have nothing but praise for the skill of my surgeon and anaesthetist and for the care of the nursing staff.

      If you carry on doing deadlifts at the gym for another 30 years you will live to a fine old age! The hernia repair will certainly not stop you.

    I would like to express my gratitude to you all, especially the surgeon and the team, for your superb service.

    Every aspect of my experience was a pleasure, from ward care to surgery, post operation and recovery.

    It was a joy to know I was being taken care of by such a professional and good humoured team.
    I will not hesitate in recommending The British Hernia Centre.

    Thank you so much for a fantastic piece of surgery. Thank you to all the team.

    Three months on and everything has settled.

    • • No swelling,
    • • No pain,
    • • No infection,
    • • No irritation,
    • • No abnormalities and
    • • Full sensitivity returned beneath the scar.

    Surgical perfection.

    What a wonderful job! I thank you for your great understanding, care and expertise.

    All I can say is well done to you and everyone at the The British Hernia Centre.

    With best wishes to you all.

    Thanks for the great work , I’m very active , living life to the fullest.

    The “wait and see” policy is absurd, why wait in pain, and have it get worse? I’m VERY pleased with my decision to travel from Aruba to the UK , and had you all perform my operation, please thank everyone for me.

    I know you are the best and are innovative and are interested in patient feedback.
