I don’t know much about him. His education and publications suggest that he is at the forefront of hernia repair technology.

Today’s hernia repair centers are starting to include mesh removal as a normal part of their repertoire. They will put it in and they will take it out.

If you do get deeper in to consulting with a surgeon about your problems be aware that there will probably be a long path ahead before any surgeon will agree to remove the mesh, unless they have seen similar problems themselves and resolved them with removal. Your complete medical records from start to finish might be enough for a surgeon to make the decision though.

Unfortunately, today’s medical practitioners are pretty well siloed. Each doctor is very narrowly focused. For example, several forum members have had urological problems that resolved with mesh removal but hernia repair surgeons generally refuse to consider ufology and urologists claim ignorance about mesh complications. It can be very frustrating.

I wish that I could be more positive. But it is a lot of work to find solutions after a mesh-based hernia repair. You have to find the right surgeon.

Dr. Belyansky is another possibility. He is also at the forefront of technology, and speaks at the big conferences.
