Brief Answer: Detailed answer given below Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for posting your query. I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to assist you. Yes, if a person is diagnosed with a Morgagni's hernia, he needs to undergo surgery to correct it. This is because complications like strangulation can occur. It can be done as an elective surgery and it can be done laparoscopically. I hope that answers your question. Let me know if I can assist you further. Regards, Dr.Ratnakar Kini
