You will not feel any discomfort during your ultrasound scan. A Hernia ultrasound scan is regularly completed within 15-20 minutes. Our Sonographer will recommend the best course of action, depending on the ultrasound scan findings.
You will receive your results verbally after the scan.

The report will be sent to you so that you can discuss the findings with your doctor, if required.

My practitioner, I think his name was Mr Mikhael, was very professional and kind. He put me at ease and was very patient. And gave me information as to the best socks to buy to avoid swelling in the heat.
