Whether your child needs a routine procedure or a complex surgery, our surgeons offer a full range of services. Some cases are done on an outpatient basis, and some require hospitalization – all can be done safely and comfortably at Willis-Knighton South’s Women & Children’s hospital by Drs. Brown, Sorrells & Boykin.
Hernias are defects or holes in the abdominal wall. The skin overlies this defect, and it looks like a bulge that usually comes and goes. Some hernias close on their own, but most require surgery.
