Gilmore’s Groin (Groin Disruption)

The syndrome was first recognised in 1980, following the successful treatment of three professional footballers who had been unable to play for many months because of undiagnosed injuries of the groin. Although some people refer to it as a Sportmen’s Hernia there is no true hernia present. Groin disruption (Gilmore’s Groin) is a severe musculo-tendinous injury of the groin, which can be successfully treated by the surgical restoration of normal anatomy.


A hernia is a protrusion of a viscus (an organ) beyond its normal confines and occurs in either the groin or the abdomen. This protrusion produces a swelling; if it clears on lying down, it is known as a reducible hernia, or if it fails to clear an irreducible hernia. Hernias can be painless, cause slight discomfort or be painful. They tend to get larger with time and can make it difficult to undertake normal activities.
