Your question seems very specific and I don’t have precise answer. However, dissolvable sutures are oftentimes used to stitch upper layer of muscles while lower level (stronger) muscles are “closed” with permanent sutures at pure tissue repair. UK doctors who use pure tissue repair based on internet info are Aalie Sheen from Manchester and Simon Marsh from London. I am 100% sure that there are more surgeons in UK who use pure tissue repair. I would also mention that you should be very careful with Desarda technique, which was criticised enough.
Hi,i too live in the uk in the south east.The only surgeon i have found is a Consultant General Surgeon Simon Bailey,at KIMS Hospital maidstone in Kent,he does Shouldice Hernia repairs with dissolvable sutures.I too am looking to have this done,but have yet to find any of his patient reviews anywhere,this is making me very nervous.
