About Umbilical Hernia

An umbilical hernia occurs when the intestinal tissues start protruding from the muscle wall around the navel or belly button. It can arise in infants as well as in adults. While in kids, the condition resolves on its own within 1-2 years, adults usually have to seek surgical treatment for this type of hernia. It usually arises in people who are overweight or women who have had multiple pregnancies.

If you suspect that a bulge is appearing near the belly button and it hurts sometimes, it is time that you see a hernia specialist. You can contact Pristyn Care and consult our umbilical hernia doctors in Delhi to determine the most appropriate treatment for the condition.

    Treatment

    Diagnosis 

    Umbilical hernia can be diagnosed easily with the help of a physical examination. The doctor will feel the bulge or swelling around the belly button. In a baby, the bulge will be more noticeable when he/she cries. 

    During the diagnosis, the doctor will also identify if the hernia is reducible or not. Some tests may also be recommended to see if the umbilical hernia has become incarcerated. These tests include X-ray, ultrasound, MRI, or a CT scan. 

    The results from these tests will help the doctor determine the severity of the condition and the most appropriate treatment method. 

    Procedure 

    At Pristyn Care, our general surgeons prefer using the laparoscopic technique to repair an umbilical hernia. The surgery is performed in the following steps- 

    • The patient is given general anesthesia to numb their body and to make sure that they are asleep during the procedure. This will prevent the patient from feeling anxious or worried during the procedure. 
    • Small incisions are made in the abdominal region through which the laparoscope and surgical equipment are inserted. 
    • The laparoscope provides clear images of the internal organs to help the surgeon find the hernia sac. 
    • The intestine is pushed back in the right place and if needed, a hernia mesh is placed around the muscle wall to prevent the organ from protruding from the wall again. 

    Umbilical hernia repair surgery is performed on an outpatient basis, so the patient will get discharged on the same day. The recovery will happen at home. Therefore, the doctor will provide a detailed plan to follow during this period that will promote faster healing.

    Umbilical cord is the connection between the mother and the baby which is cut off after the birth. Normally, the opening in the umbilical cord closes shortly after the child is born. However, in some cases, the opening may not close up and a hole will be left in the abdomen that makes the child more prone to umbilical hernia.

    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 2-3 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 is not 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.
