    I’m guessing it was Desarda which can be done with absorbable sutures.

    Dr. Brown was a fan of the Desarda technique, although he didn’t like to call it that. He used to mix and match it sometimes with other procedures which was strange. For example, in my case he wanted to do something that sounded like a combination of Marcy and Desarda. It was hard to get specifics about what he was going to do exactly, which scared me away.

    I think he had the right idea of tailoring repairs to patients, but for him that didn’t mean simply picking the best repair among the proven ones. He would sometimes perform a combo from a couple of procedures or more, essentially creating his own hybrid procedure, which was hard to assess.
