What is 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 Hyderabad to determine the most appropriate treatment for the condition.

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. 


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.
