The Gilmore Groin & Hernia Clinic

The Gilmore Groin & Hernia Clinic
The Gilmore Groin & Hernia Clinic in London provides an integrated service staffed by a dedicated multi-disciplinary team specialising in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of patients with Gilmore’s Groin and various types of hernia. It aims to achieve this with the highest standard of professional care, and a minimum of delay in relaxing and friendly surroundings.

Specialist in sports injuries and hernia surgery - Mr O.J.A. Gilmore, Consultant Surgeon and Director
Jerry Gilmore MS FRCS FRCS (Ed) F. INST. SPORTS MED qualified at Barts in 1966 and was awarded the Begley Prize, from the Royal College of Surgeons of England. In 1975, he was awarded the Moynihan Prize by the Association of Surgeons of Great Britain and The Hamilton Bailey Prize by the International College of Surgeons.

In 1976 he was awarded the Master of Surgery Degree by the University of London. He was appointed Hunterian Professor by the Royal College of Surgeons of England and Consultant Surgeon to St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London.

During research for the Master of Surgery Degree he developed an interest in wound healing which evolved into specific interest in soft tissue injuries and repair. In 1980 he recognised the syndrome of groin disruption in sportsmen and undertook the first successful repair. The technique later became known as ‘Gilmore’s Groin’.

Over 26 years more than 6,000 sportsmen and sportswomen have been referred and over 3,600, including 364 internationals, have undergone successful surgery.

In 1991, the Gilmore Groin & Hernia Clinic was established at 108 Harley Street.

In 1995, the pioneering work on Gilmore’s Groin, which has resulted in the rapid restoration of many sportsmen’s careers, was recognised nationally by the award of Fellowship of the Institute of Sports Medicine.

In 2001, The Island Sports Fitness Centre in Hook was established as a Centre of Excellence by Jerry Gilmore for the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of patients with sporting and other injuries.
