Australia Mesh

Dr Brown Hernia SurgeonAs you know, I have been against the use of mesh to repair hernias for 30 years. I am happy to report that the governments are starting to realize that mesh is a serious problem.

Australia is the first government to respond to complications and often debilitating complications related to the mesh.

In December, all surgical mesh – including hernia mesh – was reclassified from “medium risk” to “high risk” for potential adverse reactions.

All patients with surgical mesh operations must now be given a leaflet and implant card warning about the mesh’s potential risks.

I hope patients will use this information to push for more pure tissue repairs.

Contact me if you have any questions about your hernia.

Regards.
Bill Brown, M.D.
