Q.

Mesh surgery

There has been much advertising by lawyers regarding mesh implant and the law suits brought because of pain, infection, etc. Isn't there another way to treat incontinence in women that is totally safe and has been out in the market place long enough to get positive feedback?

To put things into perspective, the risk of pain and infection after mesh surgery is less than 5%. In other words 95% of patients do very well. For those that have an issue, it can be troublesome to treat. There are several class action suits underway, and the more patients the lawyers can recruit, the more money they make, as they take a percentage of any potential award.

In medicine, there is nothing that is 100% effective, and 100% safe. Life doesn't work like that.
