How is a Hernia repaired?

Mr Kirkby-Bott offers hernia repair using one of two methods:
Innovative Open Repair using Local Anaesthetic and Sedation, or in certain cases Laparoscopic Repair using General Anaesthetic

Local Anaesthetic Procedure

Open repair using local anaesthetic and sedation makes hernia surgery accessible to patients of all ages and health conditions.

General Anaesthetic Procedure

Laparoscopic repair, also known as keyhole repair, can in some instances better suit certain patients.

Local anaesthetic, no discomfort, felt very relaxed throughout – almost euphoric, but that feeling maybe because my problem was being solved. Good aftercare including guidance on how to recover quickly. Discharged same day. No subsequent problems.”
