Its easy to correct!: Pyloric stenosis occurs in infants between 2 weeks and 3 months of age. In this condition the muscle at the place where the stomach empties is thickened so that the food cannot pass. It is corrected with a small operation to cut the muscle. This surgery can be done laparoscopically or with a small incision above the navel. The infant can usually start eating within a few hours after surgery.
