Hernias are also common in children, and such problems are treated through corrective surgery with the child under general anaesthesia.
The procedure is performed as an outpatient surgery at Pikkujätti hospital in Tapiola, Itäskeskus or Kerava by a paediatric surgeon. The doctor performing the procedure will assess whether or not the procedure is necessary. The child will be discharged the same day as the procedure is performed, so no hospital stay is necessary. (See Surgery and anestetic procedures)
