Umbilical Hernia Surgery
"Making state of the art surgery affordable"
- Umbilical hernias in infants are congenital and are quite common; they close spontaneously in most cases by the age of 2 years. Those that persist after this age are required to be repaired surgically.
- In adults, this type of hernia is largely acquired, there are more common in women and in patients with any condition that results in increased intra-abdominal pressure.
- Generally, these types of hernias require such a small incision that laparoscopy is almost never the best option; therefore, we prefer to repair them by using "open or conventional" technique.
- Defects greater than 1.1 inch (3 cm) require a "tension free repair", this means they are closed using a prosthetic mesh (to reduce the risk of recurrence and postoperative pain).
