  • Options for umbilical hernia repair without mesh

    Hi all. I am reading in various websites if your umbilical hernia repair using mesh is being infected or causing chronic chronic pain then get it removed.
    My question is what other surgical options are available to repair the hernia without mesh? Thanks

    Depends on the umbilical hernia size. Small size umbilical hernias would be most appropriate for non-mesh repairs.

    The goal is to be symptom free. Sometimes weight loss and abdominal strengthening can get you there.
