Article on Children’s Quick Recoveries from Hernia Surgery Highlights Effectiveness of Modern Medical Practices, Notes Beverly Hills Hernia Center

According to an article published April 5th on HT Health, children who undergo hernia repair surgery are often able to heal very rapidly compared to adults. The author of the article notes that, while hernias are not often considered an issue that children typically deal with, they are more common than most assume, and often easier to treat and recover from. For young children, the author explains, inguinal hernias, which occur in the groin, and umbilical hernias, which occur in the navel, are among the most common types. Unlike hernias in adults, which are often caused by lifestyle factors, pediatric hernias are caused by a defect present at birth.

Commenting on this article, hernia surgery specialist Dr. Shirin Towfigh of the Beverly Hills Hernia Center notes that, because young children are susceptible to hernias related to these developmental issues, it is important that parents fully understand the symptoms and signs of hernias in order to avoid potentially serious complications. Dr. Towfigh notes that the most common signs of hernia in children include vomiting and abdominal pain. What’s more, the physical signs of hernias may either be visible all the time or only during times of physical stress. For example, the hernia lumps may expand when the abdominal cavity is strained, such as while crying or coughing. Additionally, Dr. Towfigh notes that, if it seems that the hernia lump is constantly protruding and firm to the touch, this is what is known as an incarcerated hernia, and can lead to complications that affect digestion and intestinal health. In this case, Dr. Towfigh notes, the child should see a hernia specialist as quickly as possible.

As mentioned in the article, while children tend to recover quickly from hernia repair surgery, adults are also recuperating much quicker than previously, Dr. Towfigh notes. By making use of the latest state of the art medical technology and techniques available, such as laparoscopy and the robotically- assisted da Vinci method, a great many hernia patients are back on their feet within a day or two following an operation.     

Dr. Towfigh is one of the nation’s very surgeons specializing in abdominal wall surgery and is widely respected in the medical community for her ability to deal with hernias, their diagnosis, and repair in the most effective ways possible.
