Open mesh or tension free mesh is an advanced technique pioneered by London Hernia Consultants and has been perfected over thousands of successful operations.
What Is Open Mesh?
This method of Hernia repair involves positioning a piece of fine mesh at the opening of the incision, allowing the body to heal naturally around it.
The body senses the presence of the mesh and creates fibrous tissue to grow around and interlace the mesh increasing its strength so that the weakness that caused the hernia is eliminated. It acts almost as a steel plate inside the abdominal wall.
Why choose Open Mesh?
- Short operation with minimal, if any, pain
- Can be performed under local anaesthetic
- Rapid recovery, can go home same day
- Reliable against a possible re-occurrence
- No issues for older patients
