General Surgeon, Pediatric Surgeon, General Practitioneer, certified medical expert of the Austrian Court


The hernia in children occurs relatively frequently and very often affects infants. It differs significantly from inguinal hernia in adults and should therefore only be treated by trained pediatric surgeons or surgeons with extensive experience in pediatric surgery. Since the infantile inguinal hernia is almost always congenital, the treatment consists of closing the open inguinal canal. In boys, very delicate blood vessels, the spermatic duct, nerves and fibres travel to and from the testicles. Special attention should be paid to these structures, here we usually operate with magnifying glasses. The operation is technically complex, but in experienced hands it takes only a short time and requires only a very short stay in hospital. The little patients are pain-free after the operation and can leave the hospital the day after the operation. Prof.Paya is an outstanding specialist for hernia operations and can assist you with advice and support. We also offer day clinic surgery (outpatient) in a pleasant atmosphere without stress in the private sphere (self-payer or additional insurance). See also under "Hernia = Hernie" at the top of the main menu.
