Have you ever wondered what doctors consult your favourite athletes? Our surgeons annually treat top international sports professionals who suffer from inguinal hernia’s.
Athletic organisations tend to inflict a lot of pressure upon the rapid recovery of their athletes, leading to the development of innovative treatment methods. This ensures that patients receive a quicker and smoother recovery.
Many are mistaken in believing that top athletes receive unaffordable care. As our surgeons work from their own private clinics, they are able to keep costs low.
Top Sport demands the constant urge for improvement, both on and off the pitch. These demands accelerate the developments made in the medical fields, resulting in improved surgical methods as well as treatments of common injuries. In terms of inguinal hernia’s, our surgeons have a pioneering role in developing better surgical conditions and methods for all our patients.
What does this mean for you?
With our operational methodologies, football players are often able to return to the pitch within a week. However, a trained and fit body is not a requirement for a speedy recovery! As the repair of your inguinal hernia is done without the use of mesh, your body is not required to adapt to having a foreign substance inside you. The outcome of this is perfect for you to be able to return to normality as the healing process begins practically immediately after your operation. This occurs due to the strengthening of the repaired fracture by the formation of strong scar tissue as well as the growth of nerves due to ‘known terrain’.
