About Umbilical hernia

These are more common in infants and small children but can develop in adults also. These may enlarge while laughing, coughing, crying or while passing stool and shrink when you relax.

    Treatment

    Treatment and Diagnosis – umbilical Hernia

    Umbilical hernia treatment for infants and children – Most cases of umbilical hernia in children resolve on their own and no treatment is required. In the majority of the cases, by the time the child is 12 months old, the umbilical hernia closes. If that does not happen. the doctor may have to push the abdominal lump back into the abdomen.

    Surgical intervention in cases of umbilical hernia in children is only recommended:

    • if the hernia does not close even after the child is 2 years old
    • the swelling persists even after the child is 4 years of age
    • the hernia becomes trapped
    • the intestines get trapped within the hernia sac

    Umbilical hernia treatment in adults – In adults, umbilical hernia is generally treated by surgical repair. An umbilical hernia repair surgery is a quick and effortless surgery where the surgeon just needs to push the bulge back into place and strengthen the abdominal wall. The surgical umbilical hernia repair can be done in two ways:

    Open surgery – The surgeon makes open incisions in the hernia site, pushes in the bulge, and repairs the umbilical hernia with a mesh. The doctor then stitches the muscles together.

    Laparoscopic surgery – An advanced and more effective form of hernia repair, where the surgeon makes a keyhole, through which the surgeon inserts hernia mesh to seal the abdominal wall.

    Tests for Umbilical Hernia Diagnosis

    A hernia specialist can often diagnose an umbilical hernia through physical examination alone. Looking at the signs, symptoms, and the outlook of the hernia, the doctor in most cases can identify an umbilical hernia without any other tests for diagnosis. But in case the symptoms exhibited do not clearly indicate an umbilical hernia, the doctor may ask the patient to do imaging tests like ultrasound, blood tests, X-ray, or a CT scan.

    What are the benefits of undergoing minimally invasive and advanced umbilical Hernia Surgeries?

    Laparoscopic or minimally invasive surgeries are the results of medical advancements of several decades. This form of surgery is no less than a boon for the treatment of hernias of all types and grades. In laparoscopic surgery for umbilical hernias, the surgeon inserts a laparoscope through tiny incisions made in the abdomen. The laparoscope has a camera attached to it which helps the surgeon in getting a detailed view of inside the abdomen. Using the image guides on the monitor, the surgeon pushes inside the hernia bulge and using a hernia mesh, strengthens the abdominal wall.

    Key benefits of laparoscopic surgery for an umbilical hernia include:

    Quicker recovery

    – Since the surgery does not involve any major cuts, the person undergoing a laparoscopic umbilical hernia surgery can get back to regular work-life in just 3-4 days. This is recovery time is much shorter compared to open surgery, where the person needs 10-14 days to recover. The short downtime is one of the major factors that make laparoscopic surgery for umbilical hernia one of the highly sought-after treatments.

    Smaller incisions

    – Unlike conventional surgery for umbilical hernia treatment, laparoscopic surgery or minimally invasive surgery, as the name suggests, involves much smaller incisions. Since the incisions are of negligible size, the recovery is seamless.

    Reduced complications

    – The chances of risks and complications in the case of a laparoscopic is much lesser than in open surgery for umbilical hernia repair. But to ensure a safe recovery and permanent cure, the patient should follow all the recovery instructions given by the doctor. If you are dealing with symptoms indicative of an umbilical hernia, consult with our experienced umbilical hernia doctors and get effective treatment before it is late. Our doctors are accomplished with extensive experience of treating several cases of umbilical hernia with a very high standard of care and success rate.

    What Happens if you do not get Umbilical Hernia Treatment in Time?

    It is not at all a good decision to delay or ignore the treatment of umbilical hernia. Though the bulge may look simple and there is no pain at present, there are high chances that the hernia may exhibit complicated signs in the near future. If umbilical hernia treatment is not provided within time, the umbilical hernia may get incarcerated or strangulated. Both the complications need emergency treatment and could even pose threat to life.The biggest risk with an untreated umbilical hernia is that all the possible complications appear all of a sudden. Most people prefer watchful waiting in case of an umbilical hernia. But, that may not be a good choice to live with.

    To avoid all the risks and complications, Pristyn Care doctors advise all umbilical hernia patients to undergo laparoscopic hernia repair surgery when the condition is at a nascent stage. A patient with an umbilical hernia has to undergo surgical treatment sooner or later.
