What is Umbilical Hernia?

An umbilical hernia occurs when an internal organ bulges or protrudes through the weak muscle around it near the navel. 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.

In the case of infants, the doctor will physically check for any protrusion or bulge near the groin area, which becomes apparent. The diagnosis process is usually the same for any individual regardless of age and gender, including a physical test. First, your doctor will try to press the bulge or look for the bulge. However, if the bulge is not apparent, your doctor may ask you to conduct abdominal ultrasound, CT scan, or other imaging tests that can help with the diagnosis.


There are two types of treatment for umbilical hernia-

Open surgery – Open surgery is a conventional type of surgery where the surgeon can fully view the organs and tissues inside your body. The patient is either under general or local anesthesia while undergoing surgery. Characteristics of open surgery are –

  • Big incision
  • High blood loss
  • Surgery duration is longer
  • Longer recovery time

Laparoscopic surgery – It is a highly advanced method of treatment that involves a laparoscope. The surgeon makes a small incision and inserts the laparoscope through it. The laparoscope is attached with a camera on the other end that provides a clear view of the organs and tissues inside. The surgeon locates the precise region of the hernia and operates it while monitoring the pictures on the screen.
