Umbilical Hernia

Umbilical hernias are usually associated with the path of the umbilical cord yet, despite this, they can occur at any age. An umbilical hernia can appear as a bulge at the ‘tummy button’ and results from a weakness in the abdominal wall.

An umbilical hernia is usually easily repaired by making a small incision below the belly button. The hernia sac is often quite small and sometimes can simply be pushed back in and the incision closed with a couple of sutures. Occasionally, if the hernia is larger, a small mesh is placed under the muscle sheath to close the defect – an operation which can often be performed under local anaesthetic.
