Open Umbilical Hernia Repair
Step by step
Umbilical hernia approach
Mark the skin semi-circularly, approximately 1 cm caudal to the umbilicus. Aesthetically, an infra-umbilical incision is preferred, but a supra-umbilical or peri-umbilical incision can also be made.
Mark the skin preoperatively (on a standing patient) to prevent possible difficulties regarding localization of the hernia intraoperatively.
