    You will first need to be seen by your GP who will recommend you to be seen by a gastroenterologist if they deem it necessary.

    A general surgeon will be able to help you with this problem.  Sometimes a gastroenterologist, or a regular doctor and reduce your hernia, but if it is a very large hernia or a chance of strangulation, you should consult with a general surgeon.  Please talk with your general practitioner to get a referral to see one.

    My dad had this. Just a primary care doctor will do. They refer you to a surgeon to get it fixed. Family care doctor

    You see your primary care doctor and he will refer you, likely to a general surgeon.
