Belly Button Wound Packing

Umbilical Hernia:
An umbilical hernia occurs when a tissue bulges out through an opening in the
muscles on the abdomen near the navel or belly button (umbilicus). About 10% of
abdominal hernias are umbilical hernias.

Treatment Options
Surgical Procedure
Open hernia repair—An incision is made near the site. Your surgeon will repair the
hernia with mesh or by suturing (sewing) the muscle layer closed.

Laparoscopic hernia repair—The hernia is repaired with mesh or sutures inserted
through instruments placed into small incisions in the abdomen.

Risks of not having an operation—Your hernia may cause pain and increase in
size. If your intestine becomes squeezed in the hernia pouch, you will have sudden
pain, vomiting, and require an immediate operation.
