Laparoscopy, when applied to the management of incisional hernias, provides good results in terms of safety and minimal recurrence. This is the case of a 50-year-old patient who underwent laparoscopic treatment for a recurrent umbilical hernia. This treatment was carried out using an anterior approach, followed by a suture to close a dehiscence at the level of the umbilical hernia.
