Is it necessary to use hernia mesh?

Use of mesh to repair hernias is the most common type of repair. It is not always absolutely necessary, but there are instances when it is the only option.

Use of mesh to repair hernias is the most common type of repair. It is not always absolutely necessary, but there are instances when it is the only option.
Use of mesh is often required when a "tissue repair" is not possible. There are times when a hernia defect is so large that the patient simply does not have enough of their own tissue to cover or close the defect. There are also situations where the patient’s own tissues are simply not strong enough to hold sutures or to keep the defect closed for any length of time.

However, there is a great deal of research that shows that the use of mesh is far superior for durability of the repair (how long it will last before the hernia comes back). There are also {{{multiple different types of mesh.}}}

At AHS, we specialize in both tissue (non-mesh) and mesh repairs. We always give the patient the option to choose the type of repair if the option is possible.
