Umbilical Hernia (Bellybutton repair)
An umbilical hernia is a type of hernia that occurs around the belly button area in children. When a bulge of the intestine pushes through the abdomen wall, it results in an umbilical hernia. It affects newborn babies and disappears in 3 to 4 years of birth. In case it doesn’t, surgery might be necessary. The pediatrician may also recommend the surgery when the hernia is incarcerated or is bigger than 2 centimeters.
Umbilical hernias do not give pain to children. However, you can identify the disease by the following symptoms:
• Swelling or bulging near the formation
• Spot becomes hard and large when the baby cries
• With an incarcerated hernia, it can be painful
