Treating chronic pelvic pain from a failed mesh device often involves surgery including complete mesh removal, reconstructive procedures for ongoing pelvic organ prolapse or stress urinary incontinence, and pain relief.

“I do believe that the mesh needs to be removed completely. You can’t really tell which part of the mesh is causing pain which most likely are the arms of the mesh, not the vaginal part of the mesh. If you remove parts of the mesh, the rest of it may be very difficult to find.” – Michael Hibner, M.D. – Pelvic Pain Specialist
