What is hernia repair mesh?
Hernia repair meshes are generally similar to the material used to make mosquito nets. However, hernia meshes are highly developed materials engineered specifically for use as sterile medical devices used for abdominal wall reinforcement. Due to ongoing advances in technology, hernia meshes are an intense area of ongoing research and development and therefore require proper selection by a surgeon with specialty training in hernia repair materials. The hernia specialists at Advanced Surgical & Bariatrics of NJ can meet with you for consultation and provide you with more information on which mesh is best for you and why.
