Umbilical Hernia

Umbilical hernias in adults cause cosmetic concerns and can be repaired at a time that is convenient for the person. Although umbilical hernias in adults do not usually strangulate and incarcerate, these complications can occur.

Because other types of hernias are more likely to strangulate, doctors usually repair them surgically when they are diagnosed. If the hernia is incarcerated or strangulated, surgery is done immediately.
