Why choose Probus Surgical Centre for your self-pay hernia treatment?

Our package for self-paying patients offers short waiting times to see a Surgeon of your choice. Our Day Case Surgical Centre provides a comfortable, welcoming environment where you can relax knowing you are in safe hands. Also with our fixed cost care package you have the reassurance of knowing what you will pay before your treatment has commenced.

Although a hernia operation can be performed under either local or general anaesthetic, at Probus Surgical Centre this operation is only performed under local anaesthetic.

We can also offer self-pay hernias in the East of the County at Liskeard Community Hospital or Stratton Community Hospital.
