If an operation is required it can be arranged immediately for the first mutually convenient date for you and your surgeon.  Surgery under general anaesthetic takes place at a partner hospital and The Gilmore Groin and Hernia Clinic staff will make the booking for you.  The partner hospital is recognised by all medical insurance companies but it is important that you confirm with your insurers that it is listed on those covered by your policy. Each patient is given a full estimate of the professional fees for the surgery and also an indication of length of inpatient stay required.

The patient will be admitted to the hospital on the morning of the operation. On admission, a hospital administrator will ask for contact information and confirm your method of payment (insurance details etc.)  Once admitted to their room a nurse will confirm the patient’s personal details, answer any questions concerning hospital procedures and attach to the patients wrist a bracelet with their name and hospital number.  Any further investigations, such as blood tests or x-rays requested by the patient’s consultant surgeon will be undertaken. The consultant surgeon will visit both before and ask the patient to sign a consent form for the operation and again after the operation.  The consultant anaesthetist will also make a pre-operative visit to ask relevant questions and explain the method of anaesthesia and will also visit again post-operatively
