The Hernia Clinic

Southern Cross Health Society Affiliated ProviderFracsFracsANZGOSA_logo

The Hernia Clinic, in Christchurch, is the South Island’s first clinic specialising in the diagnosis and treatment of hernias.

The Hernia Clinic has been established by surgeon Ross Roberts in response to local demand for such a service. The clinic is also in keeping with international trends towards a focused and specialised approach to surgical problems by a team with a specialised interest in the condition.

Hernias are particularly common disorders, especially in men, and can only be successfully treated by surgical repair. The past requirement for prolonged time away from work and exercise following surgical hernia repair no longer applies today.

The team at our Christchurch-based Hernia Clinic are widely experienced in all forms of hernia repair including keyhole and the more traditional surgical techniques.

We provide a friendly, welcoming approach with full attention to patient privacy and the service offered is courteous, rapid and efficient. All surgical results are fully audited to ensure the outcomes are in line with international standards for similar hernia specialist clinics worldwide.

Procedures are carried out at either the Southern Cross Hospital or St. Georges Hospital, which are both purpose-built, to provide the most up to date equipment for both laparoscopic and all other surgical procedures.

Information regarding hernia repair options is available freely on request. To see an electronic version of our brochure, please click here. Or you can contact The Hernia Clinic on 03 961 6666 or email us at
