Umbilical Hernia

About Treatment

Treatment for umbilical hernia depends on various factors, including the size of the hernia, the severity of symptoms, and the patient’s overall health.Traditional open treatment involves making an incision near the umbilicus (belly button) to access the hernia sac. The protruding tissue is pushed back into place, and the abdominal wall is reinforced with sutures or a mesh patch to prevent recurrence. Laparoscopic Treatment is a minimally invasive approach that utilizes small incisions and specialized  instruments to repair the hernia. This technique offers faster recovery, less postoperative pain, and reduced scarring compared to open Treatment Our team consists of board-certified surgeons with extensive experience in hernia repair techniques, ensuring optimal outcomes for our patients.

Frequently Asked Questions

Common symptoms of an umbilical hernia include a bulge or lump near the belly button, especially when standing or straining, pain or discomfort at the site of the hernia, and swelling or tenderness around the belly button.

Umbilical hernias are typically diagnosed through a physical examination by a healthcare provider. Imaging tests such as ultrasound or MRI may be ordered to confirm the diagnosis or evaluate the extent of the hernia.

Treatment options for umbilical hernias include watchful waiting (for small, asymptomatic hernias), lifestyle modifications to reduce pressure in the abdomen, supportive garments such as trusses or belts, and surgical repair (herniorrhaphy or hernioplasty).

While umbilical hernia repair surgery is generally effective, there is a risk of hernia recurrence, especially if the underlying factors that contributed to the hernia are not addressed (such as obesity or heavy lifting).
