An umbilical hernia occurs when the intestine ends up protruding out of the muscles in your abdomen. Even though the condition commonly occurs in infants, it can occur in adults also. In children, these hernias are quite obvious when the child cries. Their belly button will end up protruding outward, which is a classic sign of umbilical hernias. To alleviate pain from an umbilical hernia, you can easily schedule your surgery and save time and money with I Need A Surgery at an Ambulatory Surgery Center near you.
In adults, having too much pressure in the abdomen can cause these hernias to develop. Some of the common reasons why include:
During the procedure, small incisions are made at the bottom of your belly button. Any herniated tissues are put back into the cavity where they belong. Sutures are used to close the opening in your abdomen. When it comes to adults, a surgical mesh is used to provide your abdominal wall with the extra strength it needs.
Most of the time, the surgery is done on an outpatient basis. Limit your activities for about a week after surgery. Don’t return to work or school during the recovery period. For the first three days, you should only take sponge baths. The tape that was placed over the incision will end up falling off without any help. If it doesn’t, wait until you see the doctor for your follow-up visit.
I Need A Surgery can get you the procedure through the Surgery Center Network for $3,600, versus having to pay $36,000 if you were to book the procedure through the hospital on your own. Pricing is exclusive of any implants or other hardware and is only an average. Your actual cost might be higher or lower.
