Hernia Ultrasound £200

Hernia Ultrasound

MUMS Radiographer – Mr Adrian Burman– offers Hernia Ultrasound Scans to patients aged 16 and over.

A hernia ultrasound is a musculoskeletal scan (MSK). Sometimes there can be a weakening in the body tissues causing deeper tissues to protrude through these weakened areas. These are termed hernias and can be assessed and diagnosed with ultrasound very easily.

Types of hernia include:

  • Epigastric (mid abdomen)
  • Inguinal (Groin)
  • Femoral (lower groin/upper thigh)
  • Scrotal ( into the scrotum) and surgical (from previous surgery).

Having a hernia ultrasound will confirm whether a hernia is present and how severe the hernia is.  It will enable your clinician to put the most appropriate hernia treatment plan in place.

Hernia Ultrasound Scans are safe, non-invasive, and reliable. The procedure takes around 30 minutes. 

There is no need for a referral – you can self-refer for peace of mind. 

There is no preparation for a hernia ultrasound.

Gel is used to glide the transducer and pictures and measurements of the Hernia area are taken by the Radiographer.

You will be given a detailed report that you can give to your referring clinician and a copy will be in your MUMS electronic medical record should you wish to consult with any of MUMS Private GPs for onward referral.

There are no waiting times at MUMS. 

You can call us on 0121 704 2669 to book or you can make an enquiry on our website. You can even book and pay online.
