Vaginal Mesh Treatments Lake Forest IL

Women with pelvic organ prolapse who have had vaginal mesh treatment years before may be experiencing complications, including:

  • Pain
  • Erosion
  • Infection

When these issues arise, it is important to work with a doctor who can remove the vaginal mesh and replace it with a more appropriate alternative. Vaginal meshes have come a long way since first introduced back in the 1950’s, and so we encourage patients to consider the replacement of their mesh if they have experienced complications in the past. Additionally, we provide alternatives for patients to consider if they decide to move forward with a different option.

Dr. Sanjay Gandhi and the team of North Shore Urogynecology understand that patients may face a variety of risks when they decide to consider surgical options. All surgery comes with risks and possible complications, so it is essential that patients take the time to educate themselves on the solutions available to them and then discuss the benefits of each one to make a knowledgeable decision.
