What is an umbilical hernia?

In an umbilical hernia,the tissue near the belly button or navel bulges out through a weakened spot in the abdomen. This forms a herniated sac that contains a part of the intestine, fluid, or fat. The bulge becomes prominent and causes pain while laughing, coughing, sneezing or lifting any object.

Doctors ask the patient for physical examinations for the proper diagnosis of umbilical hernia. The doctor checks for signs of a bulge in the navel area. The doctor may ask the patient to stand or cough as these activities make the hernia noticeable.

In addition, the doctor may also recommend imaging tests like CT scans, ultrasound, MRI, etc to confirm the presence of hernia near the navel region.


Laparoscopic hernia repair surgery is advanced and minimally invasive in nature repair. The entire surgical procedure is performed by administering anesthesia to the patient. The surgeon makes a few minor incisions in the abdomen. CO2 gas is required to inflate the abdominal cavity to clearly view the internal organ and minimize the chances of injury. A laparoscope is inserted through one of the incisions made in the abdomen.

It is a slender tube-like structure with a camera mounted at its tip. The surgeon then pushes back the hernia into its original place by using other surgical equipment. A surgical mesh is placed to strengthen the weakened muscles and then the incisions are closed with the help of stitches.

Why is it necessary to undergo surgery for an umbilical hernia?

A hernia is one such medical condition for which surgical repair is necessary. Hernias have a tendency to grow bigger and severe with time. An umbilical hernia can become incarcerated if it gets trapped in the abdominal wall. Incarcerated hernia causes problems like nausea, vomiting, severe abdominal pain, blood in stools, etc. Prolonged incarceration may result in cutting off the blood supply of the trapped portion. Such a condition is called strangulated hernia that requires immediate surgery. This complication of hernia can be potentially fatal.

The above-mentioned complications can be avoided by undergoing surgery as advised by the doctor.

There are two types of surgeries available for hernia repair- open and laparoscopic surgery. The latter is the advanced and simplified approach to hernia repair. The laparoscopic technique is regarded as one of the most effective hernia treatments and is least invasive in nature.

  • Benefits of opting for laparoscopic surgery for umbilical hernia:
  • The surgeon requires minimal access to the body- minimally invasive surgery
  • Painless surgery
  • Completes within 40-45 minutes only
  • Outpatient or daycare procedure- no need for overnight hospital stay (in most cases)
  • Faster healing of wounds
  • The patient can easily get back on their feet within a week
  • Complete recovery within 3-4 weeks
  • Only minimal discomforts while healing from the surgery
  • No permanent scarring from the procedure
  • Wound care is simple and no major lifestyle restrictions
  • Reduced chances of wound infection, inflammation or any other postoperative complication

Are there any risks or complications of umbilical hernia surgery?

The chances of risks and complications are very high in the case of open umbilical hernia surgery as compared to laparoscopic surgery.:

  • Following are the common complications associated with open hernia surgery:
  • Recurrence of hernia
  • Heavy bleeding during or after the surgery
  • Infection at the site of a large incision
  • Severe abdominal pain due
  • Damage to the surrounding visceral organs
  • Perforation of the intestine
  • Bowel obstruction
  • The chances of these aforementioned complications are almost nil in the laparoscopic technique. However, there are only some minor complications associated with laparoscopy-assisted hernia surgery: Nausea and vomit
  • Side-effects from anesthesia
  • Difficulty in passing gas

These problems can be managed with the advice of the surgeon while recovering.
