Umbilical Hernia Repair

At miVIP Surgery Centers, our doctors are committed to providing minimally invasive surgery options in a variety of practice areas. Umbilical hernia repair is one such procedure, and it can correct complications associated with tissues, fluids, or fats protruding into the navel.

Umbilical hernias are most often seen in infants, but can occur in some adults as well. Most children with umbilical hernias do not need surgery because the condition corrects itself over time. However, if a child is three or older or if an adult develops hernia issues surgery may be required. Choosing miVIP hernia specialists to perform this surgery allows for a patient’s recovery time to be as swift as possible.

The Hernia Surgery Process

Unlike open surgery, umbilical hernia repair offered at miVIP Surgery Centers requires only a small incision. The steps a doctor will follow to complete the surgery include:

  • Administering general anesthesia
  • Making one precise cut on the abdomen near the hernia
  • Pushing the herniated materials back into place
  • Suturing any torn muscles or tissues
  • Adding additional stitching or mesh as required
  • Closing the incision site with sutures
