    I wish moderator of this forum {drtowfigh } would comment here .No one ever mention here those doctors ?

    There is no evidence-derived basis for believing that the use of mesh is more responsible for chronic inflammation than biological mesh. We would suggest you look at technique, skill and level of experience LONG before the materials. Many, if not most surgeons using mesh to repair hernias apply the mesh in a way we do NOT use. Fundamentally, they apply it like a ‘patch’ on the outer surface of the abdominal muscle wall. Not only does that fail to achieve a fully tension-free and distortion-free repair (as ours does) but it risks contact with surrounding tissue and possible complications arising from that, perhaps adhesions. As you now understand, we have found the very best way to introduce the mesh is within the abdominal wall muscle. Between the layers, if you will.

    There are precious few real hernia specialists and two in the USA that we know and respect are on the two coasts…

    Did you copy that directly from the source? There is something wrong with the sentence structure since it basically compares “mesh” to “mesh”. The sentence does not really have any meaning.

    Do you have the original link? It looks familiar.

    It is from e/mail they sent me ! most was interesting below….. no one offer it here

    Here is below what dr. Arthur Gilbert says..i really dont like it
    Good afternoon Mr. ……

    Thanks for contacting the Hernia Institute of Florida with your recent inquiry.

    We do not use biologic mesh. Our mesh has two layers – one under the muscle and one above.

    You can contact Dr. Towfigh at Beverly Hills or Dr. David Chen at UCLA for other options.

    Best regards-
    Hernia Institute of Florida
