What sets us apart from other clinics?

The clinic is equipped with modern diagnostic and surgical facilities, all analogous to those in Western European clinics. You will be looked after by professional English speaking staff. The wards are fully furnished and equipped with TV, WC and air conditioning. Free Wi-Fi is available while staying in the clinic.

Our clinic is one of the biggest surgical centres in the Baltic region. We work with patients from various countries, among which Great Britain, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, etc.
Despite the size of the clinic we provide our patients with personal care and assistance. The majority of big public hospitals due to high volume of patients do not have enough resources and medical personnel to pay personal attention to each patient. Whereas we are fully focused on providing exceptional care and undivided attention for our patients.
The patients are provided postoperative care at the clinic without any additional fees. Your hospital stay may take up to 4 days. The surgeon only discharges our patients when they are in a good health state and ready to leave. This is contrary to the majority of clinics that tend to discharge patients one day after the surgery or even on surgery day.

During your entire stay in Lithuania you will receive personal care as well as transport to and from the clinic, hotel, and airport. You will not have to worry about a thing. You will be assisted from the moment your plane lands in Vilnius or Kaunas airport till your departure.

Our clinic is flexible date-wise and can usually arrange your surgery on the date convenient for you.

Everyone in our clinic speaks English, including customer service desk, nurses, assistants and the surgeon.

Our clinic is the only clinic in Europe that offers customer service in 8 languages, among which English, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, German, Spanish, Russian, and Lithuanian.

2-3 hour regular flights operate from all main airports in the UK & Ireland. Lithuania is closer than you thought. You can find the list of direct flights here. Please note that airlines constantly add new flights and new destinations, therefore feel free to contact us if you need help choosing the flight that suits you best.

Our clinic operates strictly according to international standards. Therefore, contrary to most of the commercially oriented clinics in the region, we advise patients with lower BMI of non-surgical procedures. Dr Maleckas approves patients after a thorough evaluation of each case.

Lithuania has been a part of the EU and NATO since 2004. Lithuania has one of the fastest growing economies in the whole region and the second fastest internet speed in the world. Lithuanian medical schools have trained many medical professionals who are highly appreciated and employed by many foreign hospitals, among which hospitals in the UK.

What is hernia?

A hernia is a protrusion of an organ through the weakest part of the muscles or connective tissue of the abdominal wall. Hernias are provoked by a combination of factors – increased intra-abdominal pressure and the weakness of the abdominal wall muscles or fascia. Therefore, the main risk factors associated with hernias are obesity, pregnancy, chronic cough or constipation, connective tissue disorders, as well as older age, smoking, family history of hernia and physical exertion.

Types and symptoms of hernia

The most common types of hernia include inguinal, femoral, incisional and umbilical hernias.

Inguinal hernias occur in the groin and are divided into two groups: indirect and direct hernias. Indirect inguinal hernia protrudes through the internal inguinal ring to the inguinal canal and follows the course of the spermatic cord. Direct hernias bulge straight through the defect of the lower abdominal wall muscles. Inguinal hernias are more common among men.

Femoral hernia occurs just below the inguinal ligament, with the protrusion of the abdominal contents into the femoral canal. This type of hernia affects more women than men.

Incisional hernia develops at the surgical incision site made for a previous abdominal surgery. It is more likely to occur if the wound has not healed well (e.g. there was a surgical site infection).

Umbilical hernia involves a protrusion of the abdominal contents through the navel. It often occurs in obese or pregnant women or new-borns.

Overall, abdominal wall hernias have a variety of clinical presentations depending upon their location. Generally, there are no symptoms except a painless bulge varying in size. However, hernias may cause discomfort or increased pain when standing up or stretching.


Whatever type of hernia a person has, it is recommended to consider a proper and timely treatment. It is suggested to treat hernias to prevent obstruction of the herniated intestine or strangulation of the protruded tissue. There are two ways to treat hernias.

  • First is a non-invasive treatment where special devices and medications designed to keep the protruded tissue within the abdominal cavity are used. This type of treatment is rarely recommended by experienced doctors because of the high rate of failure.
  • The second and more sustainable way to treat hernia is an invasive one – a surgery. The way the surgery is carried out may be an open surgery where the abdominal cavity is cut open or it may be a laparoscopic – this is a less invasive method where the surgeon makes a couple of incisions in the abdominal wall and performs the procedure using special instruments. The principle of either way of surgery type is the same – to restore the integrity of the abdominal wall and to reduce the mass of the protruded tissue. To do so, the mass of the hernia is pushed into the abdominal cavity and the weak part of the abdominal wall muscles is either mended with sutures or covered up with special mesh prosthesis without using the tension. The latter is said to be a longer lasting way to surgically treat the hernia.
