Hernia surgery just a bump in the road for this active 4-year-old
When 4-year-old Will Holland came out of his bedroom crying, asking his mother, Adrienne, to push an object protruding from his stomach back in, Adrienne was terrified. The Johns Creek mom rushed Will to his pediatrician, who suggested she take him to the Children’s Emergency Department.
Joseph Bussey, M.D., a pediatric surgeon at Children’s, evaluated Will and diagnosed him with a hernia. Will needed surgery. Fortunately for Will and his family, Dr. Bussey was able to perform the surgery the same week. After the outpatient procedure, Will was able to move and function the very next day.
