In brief: General Surgeons

All general surgeons have extensive training in hernia repair during their residency.
Umbilical hernias are one of the most common operations performed by general surgeons. This may be done with or without mesh depending on the size of the hernia, the size of the patient, the activity level of the patient, and their overall health.

Usually a general surgeon.
Plastic surgeons will sometimes perform a repair when it is part of another plastic surgical procedure such as a tummy tuck.
