Umbilical Hernia

Umbilical hernias occur when fat, tissue or a part of the intestine protrudes through a weak area in the stomach muscles, resulting in a visible bulge near the naval. Although this specific type of hernia is most common among infants, it may occur in adults as well. In addition, it’s known to affect women more often than men.

If you suspect you have a hernia, or you have a protruding bulge near the groin or abdomen, it is important to seek immediate evaluation at the Los Angeles Hernia Center. Untreated hernias can lead to irreversible damage and the development of life-threatening complications, so time is of the essence.
