Dr. Guy Voeller Memphis, TN

bharlan2001 (Robert Harlan 78 years old) reporting:

Decided to approach Dr. Voeller first. Good choice. He is a professor at the University of Tennessee Medical School in Memphis, TN. He is a hernia specialist, has done studies on different meshes, has done 4,000 inguinal hernias, is a member of the Minimally Invasive Surgery unit at Baptist Memorial hospital in Memphis. He had all the right answers; polypropylene mesh, mesh anchored with glue, he would be doing the surgery, etc.

Can you give more detail on the material? I’ve seen where a couple of people have had Progrip mesh with good results, where I have Bard Soft Mesh, with poor results. Trying to draw some correlations between good materials and not so good. If they were all the same, some of the manufacturers would go out of business. There must be a reason for choosing one over another.

Thanks. And how are things now? Six weeks after surgery is barely time to reach a steady state.
