Hernias are an abnormal protrusion of tissues out of their normal body position. They are very common in the groins and the abdominal wall. They can be uncomfortable and annoying for patients and the majority will inevitably grow larger and more symptomatic over time. One of the most dangerous side-effects of a hernia is that it can sometimes allow a loop of bowel to get trapped inside it which can be life-threatening.

Mr Smith has many years of experience in the surgical repair of hernias and is happy to discuss your individual problem and the full range of management options at either Spire Liverpool Hospital or at The Royal Liverpool Hospital, UK.
