Our Specialties

Chronic Pain

Treatment of chronic pain after hernia repair can be complicated. But it can be treated.

Mesh Complications

We treat mesh-related pain, mesh-reactions, and mesh infections.

Laparoscopic & Robotic

In many cases, laparoscopic or robotic-assisted techniques can provide improved outcome and recovery. Most of our repairs use this technology.

Non-Mesh Repairs

Not all patients benefit from mesh repair. We believe in non-mesh tissue repair for many women, thin, and some younger patients.

Interesting. I personally have seen multiple delayed/late mesh infections after history of dental abscess or dental surgery. But the denominator is unknown.

I’ve also seen it with other infectious processes in the body.

Do we need to ask those with mesh to take antibiotics…

Can poor #OralHygiene lead to delayed #MeshInfection after #HerniaSurgery? We believe so and also believe in #brushing and #flossing. And because we believe this is very important message, this article is OA to be accessible by all.
