Age Demographics

Hernias are often thought to occur in older patients - people in their fifties, sixties, seventies, and that's true. There are patients that develop these over time. However, it's also quite common to see hernias occur in infants - even newborns. When we see these, we are not alarmed. We just take care of them, operate and fix them, and patients recover fine.
