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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
