Umbilical Hernia

Umbilical Hernia

Dr. Fiszer performs these procedures using the most advanced surgical technologies.

Umbilical hernias in the belly button frequently occur in infants. The majority of those will heal as the child grows without the need of an operation. However, surgical repair is occasionally necessary. When these hernias develop in adults they are often related to other health conditions like obesity, pregnancy, constipation, severe liver disease, or lung issues associated with chronic cough.

If you have developed pain and a bulge and you are unable to push the hernia back in the contents may be incarcerated through the defect. If there is compromise of the blood supply to this tissue it could be life-threatening if not addressed in a timely manner. Some symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, increasing pain, fever, abdominal distention, inability to pass gas, or red/purple discoloration of the overlying skin.  If you develop any of these signs or symptoms you will need emergency medical care.

These hernias tend to increase in size and surgical repair may be indicated.
In the past, patients required an open operation that resulted in significant scarring. Dr. Fiszer’s preference and specialty is to use minimally invasive techniques that allow him to perform the repair through very small incisions using either a camera or robot assistance. The advantages of this approach are substantial. There is an increase in the surgical precision due to the magnification by the camera. This significantly reduces potential bleeding and patients experience much less pain and are able to return to normal activities much sooner. With this technique the scars are virtually unnoticeable, providing excellent cosmetic results.

If you have a hernia or you believe you do please contact Elite Surgical Miami for a consultation.

"I had the gastric sleeve with Dr. Fiszer a few weeks ago and it was the best experience I could have hoped for. He was caring and attentive to all my questions, offered information when there were things I didn't ask that I would need to know and the procedure itself was so so much better to recover from than I could have hoped for. I would (and will) highly recommend him to anyone and everyone that is looking for a surgeon. He also did an endoscopy on me a few months earlier and I had an equally good experience for that procedure. A+++ in my book!"

- Alejandra Martin, Patient

"Dr Fiszer and his staff are wonderful. He is a very knowledgeable, kind, caring, and concerned physician. He answered all of my questions and even answered questions I did not know I had. I was very hesitant about having any type of bariatric surgery. Dr. Fiszer helped me choose which procedure was best for me and when I decide on the gastric sleeve I felt well informed and comfortable with my decision. I would highly recommend him to anyone without reservation."

- Kristin Volz, Patient

"Dr. Fiszer is an amazing doctor. His bedside manner is impeccable and his desire to make you feel safe is one of the main reason I will always seek him out for any future surgery. His medical expertise is next to none. Dr. Fiszer performed emergency surgery on my husband for an abscess last weekend and his treatment, compassion, love for his work and respect for his patients is the highest I’ve ever seen. I loved his treatment, courtesy and overall desire to help. God bless you Doc! You ROCK!!!"
