@Herniated : Instead of making such a distasteful post, why not ask Dr Kang more information on his repair procedure here on the Forum? He usually will reply to questions on this forum thankfully or his assistant Stephen will as well.
From Dr Kang’s Gibbeum Hospital Website :
“He saw many patients suffering from chronic pain after mesh inguinal hernia operations, and eventually he successfully treated those patients with severe debilitating mesh pain by removing the mesh inserted by their General Hospital. That dramatic experience forced Dr. Kang to seek a new non-mesh hernia repair, and he began to develop the new repair method based on his past experience with Bassini repairs.
Because old fashioned tissue repairs, such as Bassini repair, have a very high recurrence rate, the most important criteria was to find a way to reduce this rate. After a year or so of development and improvements, the Kang Repair method, which is the new tissue repair, was completed. More than 6,000 Kang Repairs for inguinal hernias were performed by Dr. Kang for about five years from 2013 to 2017 and have wielded extremely positive results.”
