Open Letter in Support of Mesh Pain Patients

Many of my mesh pain patients request I write a letter for them to their doctor, their employer or to their family explaing their condition. My patients have found this letter to be very helpful. Because I think this letter can benefit many more patients I have written the letter as an open letter. You do not have to be my patient. We suggest that you download it and print it and give it to your doctor, you employer and your family. Use it as you see fit. I will back you up. You can down load it here (updated 5/21/2018).

A note to hernia surgeons

Why do some surgeons say that hernia mesh should not be removed?

"Milan—Chronic groin pain after hernia surgery is now considered the most important issue facing inguinal hernia surgeons and their patients. Yet, there is still much uncertainty surrounding what causes the pain and how to prevent it." - Victoria Stern, General Surgery News
