Dr. Chanu Dasari has performed thousands of hernia mesh repair procedures and is one of the highest-rated surgeons in the United States.
Traditional hernias were repaired with suture based techniques for many years. These include:
In the past several decades medical device companies have sponsored numerous clinical trials touting the safety and efficacy of prosthetic hernia mesh implants in the human body. For hernia repairs domestically, most involve the use of artificial materials. Unfortunately, many of these widely used implantable devices have also been recalled from the market. The recalled devices went through the rigorous “FDA regulatory approval” process initially, but later demonstrated a high number of hernia mesh complications which negatively impacted patients. While complications do not occur in every case, it is important to have a frank discussion regarding the risks, benefits, and alternatives to mesh implantation.
It is important to note that this list does not include fixation tools and devices used to secure the surgical mesh to the body. The use of defective fixation tools and devices in surgery adds further complexity to certain cases. If you are experiencing mesh-related complications, please request an evaluation from Dr. Dasari.
If you are looking for hernia repair, be sure to ask about a surgeon’s level of comfort and experience with traditional hernia mesh and non-mesh repairs. Also, inquire about their expertise in addressing mesh-related complications.
