      “Bumping” this Topic up to follow my recent post on Dr. Ponsky. He is a really smart guy and explains things very clearly. The Youtube video is worth watching.

      He is much more reserved and deferential to the use of mesh in adults in this video than in his SAGES presentations. He sticks to pediatrics only. I think that he probably knows more than he showed in the Q&A. The adult hernia repair world really needs his type of critical thinking and willingness to buck the current dogma. I hope that he branches out.

      He offers his email address at the end for anyone who might want to contact him.

      I believe he had a clinical trial of adopting the pediatric non mesh laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair to a select group of adults. Not sure if it ever came to fruition.
