Are you suffering from symptoms related to a vaginal mesh implant?
You can have your symptoms assessed and treated by a team of specialists at the Vaginal Mesh Centre, King Edward VII’s Hospital.
Polypropylene mesh for vaginal prolapse and incontinence has been in use since the early 1990s, and over 120,000 patients have been implanted in the United Kingdom in the last 10 years.
For the vast majority of patients this surgery has been hugely successful with long-term durability.
However, recent studies suggest that 3-5% of patients will seek further medical advice relating to complications which can include mesh erosion into organs and mesh-related pain, and 1-2% will require surgery to remove the mesh implant.
Symptoms can vary in terms of their nature and complexity
If you are suffering with symptoms suspected to be the result of complications arising from a vaginal mesh implant, it is important that these symptoms are assessed by specialists working within a dedicated multidisciplinary team.
In the NHS, specialist commissioners have now proposed that all patients with mesh related complications are treated within specialist centres. The clinicians who have set up the Vaginal Mesh Centre are all members of the specialist Pelvic Floor Unit at University College Hospital, and are equipped to provide the highest standards of care you need.
