Pediatric surgery: Inguinal and umbilical hernia
A hernia of the abdominal wall is a very common phenomenon in adults, but also in young children. In concrete terms, a hernia occurs when an organ emerges from its cavity through a natural opening.
In the case of umbilical hernia, it is about the exit of a part of the abdomen through the umbilicus, the orifice through which food is transported by the umbilical cord.
An inguinal hernia is a condition where abdominal organs protrude through the inguinal canal.
When it comes to hernias involving the intestine, both patients face the potential for serious complications and substantial pain. To address this issue, surgery is the necessary course of action. This pediatric procedure can be done through laparotomy or laparoscopy, with the goal of returning the herniated components to their proper place within the abdominal cavity.
Pediatric procedure: Undescended testicles
Undescended testicles define a situation where a testicle, instead of being naturally in the bursa, is located in another part outside. In this case, it is necessary to perform a surgical procedure to replace the testicle inside the bursa. This situation can occur in a small percentage of children born. It is estimated that 1 in 5 prematurely born children may have undescended testicles. This pediatric procedure is commonly performed by our pediatric surgeons.
Pediatric procedure: Spermatocele
Spermatocele is a phenomenon that occurs when a cyst forms in the spermatic cord. This cord serves to connect the testicle to the abdomen. The cause of the cyst is the accumulation of fluid in the affected area. Thanks to a simple and quick surgical procedure, it is possible to treat this problem for children. This pediatric procedure requires a few days stay .
