Transcript

Although less common, inguinal hernias can occur in infants or young children. It is treated in the same fashion as in adults in that it requires an operation to repair, although typically we don't use mesh in the adolescent population. If your child does develop a hernia or is born with a hernia, it's not anything that you should be alarmed about. It can be treated easily and after the child recovers, they should have no other consequences from that.
