If actual risk numbers are ever collected and realistically assessed then Dr. Towfigh’s comment might hold much weight. “Patients who are at risk for mesh-related complications” would be all patients as things stand now. Every patient who gets mesh is at risk for chronic pain complications.
“It is safe with acceptable outcomes in a very select group of low-risk patients, especially those with bilateral hernias or those who are at risk for mesh-related complications,” Dr. Towfigh said.
