The following is a quote from the Beverly Hills Hernia Clinic web site (Dr. Towfigh’s clinic):
“Since the introduction of mesh in the 1980’s, most surgeons have lost the art of non-mesh tissue repairs of the inguinal hernia. Dr. Towfigh is experienced in non-mesh tissue repairs and regularly offers it to her patients who she feels are good candidates for that. Dr. Towfigh offers robotic-assisted laparoscopic non-mesh hernia repairs as well!
The benefit of tissue repair is mainly to reduce the risks associated with mesh implantation.”
Cost – I have no idea – but I have heard that everything in California is very expensive.
