Abdominal Pain in Children Podcast

Abdominal pain is one of the most common reasons for a parent to bring a child for medical attention, but the evaluation of a "tummy ache" can challenge both parents and the physician. While a child’s abdominal pain usually improves quickly, there are common conditions that may lead to a surgeon’s office, including hernias and appendicitis. Dr. William Moss, a vascular and general surgeon on staff at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital, discusses abdominal surgery in pediatric patients.
