Herni Mesh is not perfect



Is mesh implants safe now?


No mesh is perfectly safe. They all carry a risk of severe chronic pain. Some are a little better than others. In my experience the light weight and partially reabsorbable polypropylene mesh are better but not perfect. This is what I use if I have to use mesh.
