 Ovary and Hernia Questions

My mother is 58, and she is getting ready to have both ovaries removed.
Her doctor says that she will remove the ovaries through the navel. Is
this usual way that the procedure is done?

Also, my mother has a hernia on her navel. Should she have the hernia
removed the same time as the ovary removal surgery? Thanks.

Laparoscopy. Yes.

Repair of an umbilical hernia, if indicated, would be a separate
procedure, and gynecologists do not usually perform hernia repairs. She
would probably need to see a general surgeon for that, if it even needs
fixing.

I should add that if indeed her umbilical hernia does require repair,
her gynecologist can probably coordinate with a general surgeon in
order to have both procedures performed back-to-back.
