International Center for Laparoscopic Urogynecology, a practice that has been in Atlanta for almost 20 years, recently opened a second office in Beverly Hills, CA. and immediately began treating patients with Surgical Mesh Complications.
Drs. Miklos and Moore have written a response to the FDA Safety Communication released on July 13, 2011, regarding the usage of synthetic mesh materials for the repair of pelvic organ prolapse. While the FDA has neither taken the mesh off the market nor called for a recall, they did state that a variety of complications have been reported by patients and surgeons alike, and wish to make this fact known to surgeons and patients alike.
Dr. Miklos and Dr. Moore recently started a discussion board addressing complications of vaginal mesh for treatment of prolapse and urinary incontinence.
This discussion board was designed as a tool for women that suffer from mesh complications to hear from other women that they are not alone. Dr. Miklos and Dr. Moore will also be available to provide feedback to any questions or concerns that might be asked during these discussions.
Dr. John R. Miklos and Dr. Robert D. Moore have released a series of case studies relating to treatments of complications resulting from vaginal mesh surgeries.
