• Jerry Gilmore: London Surgeon

    Jerry Gilmore is a renowned London surgeon and a world expert on groin pain and its surgical repair. The Gilmore Groin and Hernia Clinic at 108 Harley Street is an impressive groin and hernia treatment centre with on-site x-ray and ultrasound scanning facilities, which enables rapid assessment and diagnosis.

    Jerry Gilmore qualified as a doctor at St Bartholemew’s Hospital, London and was awarded the Begley Prize, from the Royal College of Surgeons of England. He was subsequently 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 then appointed as Hunterian Professor by the Royal College of Surgeons of England and Consultant Surgeon to St Bartholomew’s Hospital, London.

    He developed an interest in wound healing during research for his Master of Surgery Degree. This interest evolved into a 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’. Gilmore’s Groin is particularly prevalent in sports requiring kicking, twisting and turning. Since 1980 over 7,000 sportsmen and sportswomen have been referred to as biography_jerry_gilmoreJerry Gilmore. Over 4,000 of these, including almost 2,000 professional athletes have undergone successful surgery.

    Jerry Gilmore’s pioneering work on Gilmore’s Groin, groin and hernia problems has helped to restore full fitness to many athletes, both professional and recreational. In 1995 this outstanding work was recognised nationally by the award of Fellowship of the Institute of Sports Medicine.
