Inguinal Hernia

Inguinal Hernia at Oaks Hospital

An inguinal hernia, also known as a 'groin hernia' is the pushing out of abdominal organs, such as your intestines, through a weak area in your groin, called the inguinal canal. 

Inguinal hernias are fairly common and occur mainly in men.

Inguinal hernia surgery is routinely performed by our expert consultant surgeons at Ramsay Health Care UK to relieve your hernia pain and symptoms. Our consultant-led care ensures one point of contact and we will keep in touch with you virtually.

Our local hospitals offer you rapid and easy access to inguinal hernia appointments and surgery to conveniently evaluate and treat your hernia.

We have strict protocols in place to minimise your risk of infection whilst receiving care at one of our Ramsay hospitals for additional safety reassurance. These include social distancing in our waiting areas, optimised patient flows, additional cleaning rotas for common touchpoint areas, and adequate PPE.
