Maybe you’re an elite athlete who needs groin repair, but has to get back on the sports field as soon as possible. Perhaps the pain has become unbearable and you urgently need a private groin surgeon who can ease the discomfort, using the most effective techniques available. 


It was with these problems in mind, that world renowned groin repair surgeon, Professor David Lloyd, developed The Lloyd Release Procedure, specifically designed to effectively treat groin problems in elite and non-elite athletes, who had pain arising from specific ligaments. 


Groin pain affects many sportsmen and women – particularly those who compete in sports involving kicking, rapid acceleration and deceleration, and sudden changes of direction, such as rugby and football. Sportsman’s Groin, which is also referred to as sports hernia and Gilmore’s Groin, is one of the most frequent threats to an athletic career.

Gary Dicker had been suffering from bilateral groin pain since the start of 2020 with no resolve during lockdown.

    A fully qualified, world-renowned, pioneering groin surgeon. Creator of the Lloyd Release Procedure

    The Lloyd Release Procedure is a method of groin repair, which involves releasing the tension in ligaments and allows recovery within a few weeks. It is conducted via keyhole surgery, performed under a full general anaesthetic. The whole procedure typically takes less than one hour.

    Three tiny incisions are made in the abdomen at the level of the navel and a telescope (laparoscope) is inserted to allow the groin area to be explored. 

    Ligaments are assessed for tears and inflammation and divided, and the pectineal ligament and fascia are also carefully assessed and released if they are under tension.


    Once all the ligaments are freed, the area is covered with a 12cm x 15cm synthetic mesh, as is done during routine laparoscopic hernia repair

    After laparoscopic surgery, athletes are encouraged to perform stretching exercises within 24 hours to regain mobility. 

    There is no restriction on activity after the release procedure and athletes can return to light training within days and try and resume normal training within a week. The goal should be that players return to their full sporting activities within two weeks.


    Your consultation with Professor David Lloyd


    What happens during a consultation? Professor Lloyd will ask you some relevant questions about your general health and your lifestyle. He’ll want to know if you are on any medication and whether you have any underlying or ongoing health issues. You may also be asked to take a blood test and provide a urine sample. 

    He’ll then explain the details of the procedure so you’ll know exactly what to expect when you arrive for your surgery. You will be given clear details about what to do and what not to do before your operation. You will also be provided with information that relates to your postoperative care such as, tending to your wounds and dealing effectively with any possible but very unlikely side-effects.
