Caption: Scar on an 8 year old boy's right hand side, two weeks after surgery to repair a hernia. A hernia is a protrusion of an organ, such as a loop in the intestines, through a weak area in the muscle or wall that normally contains it. Hernias can be very painful, and can lead to complications such as gangrene if the hernia is strangulated. The most effective treatment is surgery to push the protruding organ back into place and to repair the ruptured wall.
