Umbilical Hernia Surgery

Our Price: $ 2,700 USD

An umbilical hernia is when part of the abdominal lining or abdominal organs bulge outwards around the belly button (naval) due to a weakness in the muscle wall in or around the belly button. The protrusion can be anything from 1cm – 5cm in diameter and is most common in infants. However, adults can develop umbilical hernias, particularly women during and after pregnancy and men and women who are overweight.

Umbilical hernias in adults usually occur when a childhood weakness re-emerges or a new hernia develops nearby. Although an umbilical hernia is not in itself dangerous, there is a high risk in adults that the intestine will become trapped in the hernia. If the blood flow to the bowel or segment of trapped intestine is cut off, the hernia can cause pain and potentially life-threatening conditions such as gangrene, bowel obstruction or peritonitis.

Umbilical Hernia Surgery

About Surgical Procedure

Surgery is the only effective treatment for umbilical hernia. Without surgery, the umbilical hernia is likely to become bigger, more uncomfortable and more likely to cause more serious complications. Surgery is needed to strengthen the muscle wall and repair the weakened areas of muscle.

Umbilical Hernia Surgery

About Surgical Procedure

The procedure is generally key-hole (laparoscopic) and takes around 20 to 50 minutes. Laparoscopic surgery is minimally invasive and allows your surgeon to access the affected area via three small incisions made in the side of your abdomen. Through one incision the surgeon will place a camera so that he can view the area, with the other two incisions allowing access for specialist surgical tools. The surgeon will push the hernia back into the correct place and use surgical strengthening mesh to strengthen the weakened area of your abdominal wall.

This procedure is an outpatient procedure, meaning that an overnight stay in the hospital will be unnecessary. The package price includes surgical team fees and transfers from San Diego Airport to the hospital in Tijuana.
