Welcome To The Berkshire Hernia Centre, Reading
The Berkshire Hernia Centre prides itself on a friendly, patient-centred approach
Patients are treated as individuals and offered advice tailored to specific needs. Any surgery is performed in modern operating theatres at a time convenient to the patient.
The Berkshire Hernia Centre is run by highly experienced Consultant Surgeons Mr Simon Middleton and Mr Daniel McGrath. It was developed to provide all aspects of care from consultation to treatment and aftercare for patients with all types of hernia, employing modern and safe surgery.
Mr Middleton and Mr McGrath operate out of the following three hospitals; Spire Dunedin Hospital in Reading, Berkshire, The Berkshire Independent Hospital, also in Reading, and the Circle Reading Hospital.
A hernia is the protrusion of an organ or part of an organ, or other structure, through the wall that normally contains it. Hernias are very common – it is estimated that half a million Americans have one. In the UK, about 120,000 hernia repairs are carried out each year.
There are several types, some of which are much more common than others, although the majority occur in the abdominal wall.
