An umbilical hernia repair is a procedure to mend a weak area in the abdominal wall that’s in or near the belly button. This is to stop part of the contents of the abdomen from bulging through the weakness. Its repair is either performed as open or keyhole (laparoscopic) surgery.

During the procedure, your child’s doctor will either make one cut (open surgery) or several smaller cuts and use various special instruments to repair the hernia. They will carefully push the tissue back into place and strengthen the abdominal wall muscles to stop the umbilical hernia from returning. They may insert a mesh covering to protect the weaker areas.

The procedure usually takes about 45 minutes, and your child will either be asleep (keyhole) or awake with the area numbed (open surgery) so they won’t experience any pain.
