Women constantly ask me… what doctor near me removes mesh?  Well this is very difficult question for me to answer.  I want to provide you with a list of competent doctors right outside your front door that will make you well overnight by removing the mesh.  This is NOT the case.

There are NO DOCTORS that I can recommend other than those at UCLA in California under the direction of Dr. Raz.

To understand why you have to know one thing… I receive NO MONEY at all for recommending Dr. Raz or UCLA.  I am not connected with them at all other than a former patient having my own sling removed.  That should tell you volumes.  I am not bought or paid for by any doctors, let alone the one I recommend.

My daughter asked me why I couldn’t make a list of the worst surgeons who supposedly remove mesh.  The answer is complicated.  I cannot defend a lawsuit brought upon me for defaming any doctor.  Free speech is only free when you have the most money and can win a lawsuit.  The other reason I can’t list bad surgeons is simply because there are SO MANY!  When you do what I do… you hear the worst stories.  The horror stories that you’d think would be a fictional TV show, not real life.  Many of these doctors… most of these doctors… have heavy advertising campaigns proclaiming their success with removing mesh.  Many of the doctors are charming and personable I’ve been told, they have a gift for mesmerizing women with their words and promises, none of which are true.  They are the WORST kind of doctors.  They are butchers, they are crippling and disabling women daily.  Many times these doctors will proclaim success… and leave the woman in agony and pain much worse than she began.

My wish for any woman looking to remove the mesh… do not sacrifice yourself… do whatever you have to do and get to UCLA.  They are the only doctors in the world with the translabial ultrasound that can “see” the mesh and help guide their course of action for removal surgery.  They are the only doctors in the world that I can guarantee you will not come out of the surgery and be left to die.  It’s that simple.

    I’ve had my bladder sling since 2004 and had one other surgery in 2010 or 2011 to correct it but was recently told by urologist I need another surgery. The problem is that I live in WV and have state issued Medicaid insurance so traveling all the way to CA would be impossible for me money wise and I don’t think UCLA would accept WV medicaid. I want to make sure this time I get a urogynecologist to help me but I can’t find a list for the board certified ones on the internet. Do you know where I can find this information?

      Debbie it was a board certified urologist who put the mesh sling in me in the first place and did not believe I was having so many terrible complications until 9 weeks later and she cut the sling in the center in another surgery. She still ignored all the groin pain and other issues, so the best bet is to call around and ask everyone about how they feel about mesh. Their nurses can spe4ak to the doctor and call you back with the answer. You may find the answer on their own web pages. A list won’t help you I am afraid.

    I had a hysterectomy and mesh put in in January. I have pain daily more so when I sit. The pain is an aching inside my vagina kinda like a bad period. Ive been told it is a spasum and given valum. I dont see how a nerve pill helps and it doesnt. This doesn’t make sense. What do you think.

      Rebecca I am sure you have complications and don’t believe what they tell you. Get your records from the hospital.
