Robotic technology is a new tool that can enhance the safety of mesh removal. The improvement in visualization and precision of instrumentation has allowed for a higher degree of safety in mesh removal.
For most people that are suffering from mesh related pain or other complications, removal of the mesh is a life changing experience.
Despite expected pain or discomfort from the surgery, typically the sense of the previous mesh being removed is experienced within the first 72 hours.
While there are risks associated with these procedures, most patients benefit and appreciate "the beginning of the rest of their life".
Most mesh removal operations can be performed in an outpatient setting and some may require hospitalization.
