Mr Tom Clarnette, specialises in paediatric hernias.
We find that the clinic concept works well because:
There is always a second surgeon available with whom to discuss a complex issue.
We are able to offer early consultation (within one week) and prompt surgery (usually within two weeks).
One of our surgeons is always available for urgent problems.
Because most hernias can be treated as a day-case, non-insured patients can often afford private treatment. We also offer advice to patients by email or telephone.
