Umbilical hernia occurs when part of your intestine bulges through the weak spot in your abdominal wall. This weak spot is located near the navel, hence the name umbilical hernia. It is also known as belly button hernia or navel hernia in layman’s language.second opinion for umbilical hernia

This hernia is very common among the newborn or infants. This doesn’t rule out the possibility of affecting adults. It is also observed in adults as well. Children’s umbilical hernia heals on its own in two to five years after the birth. The bellybutton of infants protrudes when infants cries making the hernia evident.

Although in adults, surgery is the only option. Even in infants, if the bulge is present even after five to six years of age. The surgery for umbilical hernia is very simple. Open surgery and laparoscopic surgery both option are available for the treatment of hernia.

Is hernia surgery dangerous?

The surgery is not at all dangerous. It is a very small surgery. In case of laparoscopic surgery one gets discharged within 24 hours of surgery. But the patient must refrain from any physical activity for a week or two. Also, no heavy lifting for almost 6 months. A surgical mesh is used to provide support to the abdominal tissue and prevents chances of recurrence. Open and minimally invasive surgical techniques, both the options are available for the treatment. Cases of recurrence of hernia are very low.


                 In this the incision is made in the groin. The hernia is pushed
                 back into the abdomen. A MESH is placed to strengthen the
                 abdominal wall and stitches are applied.

    • This surgery is performed under local or general anesthesia.
    • It will give you long incision and recovery time is more comparatively with laparoscopic surgery.

                This is minimally invasive technique in which a small cut is made in the groin to insert the laparoscope (thing surgical tube with camera
                attached at the head).

    • Same procedure is applied further in this kind of surgery also.
    • Small incision in this case and recovery is faster too. Surgery time is longer though than open surgery.
