If you’re experiencing symptoms of a hernia such as a visible lump or bulge coming out of your stomach, inner thigh or groin area, you may be seeking a diagnosis.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I choose which consultant I see?

Absolutely. Self-funding your treatment enables you to choose when you are seen, and who you are seen by. King Edward VII’s Hospital consultants are among the finest in the UK, so you can be sure you are choosing one of the best for your condition.

Is the price fixed irrespective of how complex my hernia problem is?

If you’re experiencing the symptoms of a hernia or abdominal pain then you would be suitable for this health check.

However, if more complex investigation is required, there might be a supplemental cost.

Can I use my private health insurance?

If you have private medical insurance, you can still choose when you are seen and who you are seen by, from the same list of outstanding specialists.

The booking process is a little different. This ‘package’ price has been created for self-funding patients only and is not applicable to patients with private medical insurance.

However, if you have private medical insurance, the costs of consultations, diagnostics and treatment should be covered. Check with your insurance provider that your condition and chosen consultant’s fees are covered as you may have to pay an excess or shortfall, and obtain pre-authorisation before booking. Your insurance provider will likely require a GP referral too.

If you need any help with the process, our team is always on hand. Please call 020 7467 4344.

Do I need a GP referral?

You do not need to have a GP referral for a Hernia and Abdominal Pain Health Check, although it would be useful to have one.

Do I need to prepare for a Hernia and Abdominal Pain Health Check?

It would be useful if you could bring copies of any previous imaging (e.g. x-rays), and any details you have relating to previous treatment(s).

How long will the health check take?

The health check will take up to a couple of hours including scans and consultations.

If I need an operation, will it be done by the consultant who sees me?

Yes, absolutely. Self-funding your treatment enables you to be seen by the same specialist from your very first meeting, to your operation, to your follow up consultation. It is still your choice, and there is no obligation to see the same consultant, but you should be aware that if you choose to see another specialist, they will require you to have an initial consultation prior to any surgery.

Please note: If you need urgent surgical intervention, you may be offered the next available appropriate consultant. Don’t worry, you will be given ample time to meet him or her pre-operatively.

What happens during a Hernia and Abdominal Pain Health Check?

Following registration, you will have an initial consultation with one of our consultant hernia specialists who will ask you about your symptoms and perform a full examination of the area.

Following an ultrasound of the suspected hernia, you will have a further consultation with the specialist who will discuss the findings of the examination and ultrasound and the options to further address your symptoms, which may include further imaging or surgery. You will also have time to ask any questions that you may have.

What do I wear for a Hernia and Abdominal Pain Health Check?

Wear comfortable clothing that is easy to remove when undressing the lower half of your body.
