Umbilical hernia is a bulge that appears at the umbilicus (navel). It varies from a pea size up to the size of a small plum. This is one of the most common pediatric surgical conditions which affects 1 every 5 of all children. This is not usually painful and increases its size every time child cries or strains. 80% of most cases closes at 3 years.

Surgery needed if:

  • It is still open at the age of 3-4 years.
  • And, the presence of pain in the hernia associated with vomiting or constipation (urgent surgical opinion).

It is a simple procedure to close the umbilical orifice with absorbable suture and it can be done as a day case surgery, with minimum discomfort and very low rate of complication.
