      Good intentions

      Here is the program for the EHS’s upcoming meeting. Some parallels to the AHS meeting, similar names, similar topics.

      Overall I get the impression of professionals milling about talking about concerns then working to find ways to keep doing what they do. The EHS web site is plastered with mesh producer logos. The program is filled with mesh producer names. It’s very hard to imagine anyone stepping up and even asking if they are using too much mesh.

      But reality still seems to be impinging. there is a topic about introducing a “hernia registry”. And talks about legal issues. And talks about why mesh is a public concern. “Why is mesh on TV?” is a topic.

      Chronic pain is a topic but I did not see anything at all about pure tissue repair. I might have missed it.

      Maciej Pawlak is the doctor at devon NHS who does some tissue repairs I believe.

      Shane the Dr light from North Umbria NHS isn’t listed as he does some Desarda repairs I understand.

      Yes, I had posted some things about Dr. Pawlak in the past, it’s good to see that he is still engaged with the problems. The presentation about “hernia surge” guidelines looks interesting.
      There is also a presentation about Guidelines updates mentioned in the program. So, people are still poking at the bear but the bear is pretty big and powerful. All we can do is hope.

      Here are a couple of definitions for the acronyms used in the first post and a link to more about Dr. Pawlak.

      “A multidisciplinary team (MDT) in oncology is defined as the cooperation between different specialized professionals involved in cancer care with the overarching goal of improving treatment efficiency and patient care.”

      Dr. M. Pawlak – a new surgeon worth following (and hoping for)
