About "Paediatric Hernia Surgery"

Like adults, hernias are common in kids too. Preterm babies are sometimes even born with a hernia. It can be treated easily through surgery. There are many types of hernias, but the two most common types of hernia seen in kids are:

 

  1. Inguinal hernia – It is commonly caused when a portion of the intestine protrudes from the abdomen.
  2. Umbilical hernia – Here, the small intestine protrudes from the muscles around the belly button.

 

To prevent the blood supplying the protruded part of the intestine from blocking, surgery has to be done. During hernia surgery, the protruded portion is put back inside, and the perforation or weak muscles are repaired. Most kids recover from this surgery in about a week.
