An umbilical Hernia is an abnormal bulge that can be seen or felt at the umbilicus (belly button). These hernias are common in babies. Umbilical hernias occur when the small opening in the abdominal wall at the umbilicus has not closed. This closure may happen naturally and in some cases surgical intervention may be indicated.
Make an appointment at Sydney Children’s Surgery to see Dr Anthony Dilley in Gymea or Randwick, or Dr Carolyn Russell in Gymea, Randwick or Liverpool.
