      Hello everyone,
      I’m 19 and from Germany.
      I’m struggling with chronic pain after hernia surgery with an Ethicon UHS.
      I’ve tried medication and physiotherapy to no avail.
      I’d like to see a specialist who might be able to explant the mesh and do a suture repair.
      Can anyone recommend me a doctor/clinic for this in Germany?

      There are indeed people who specialize in removal of such meshes. You can look for places or doctors that do the mesh free repairs. They should be able to remove the mesh and repair the hernia without using a mesh.

      One doctor named Ulrike Muschaweck is mentioned in it.

      This should be the website of the hernia center she founded:

      That would be Dr. Joachim Conze, yes. From what I understand he is the chief physician at the center at the moment. I’m not sure if Dr. Muschaweck is still operating at this center. Either way, this seems like an excellent place for high quality treatment.

      After meeting Dr. Koch in person and after he successfully treated my brother’s hernia, I can warmly recommend him.

      Feel free to ask me any questions you may have.
