Tens of thousands of women have been affected by a medical advancement known as transvaginal mesh to treat pelvic organ prolapse (POP) and stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Drs. Miklos & Moore are aware that complications can occur with any operative procedure with or without mesh. Unfortunately, many patients suffer needlessly secondary to the fact that they are told that nothing can be done about the symptoms of their mesh complication. While it is true that complications from any pelvic floor surgery are complex (whether mesh has been used or not), true experts in pelvic surgery should be able to handle and treat those complications. The inability to treat mesh complications early may result in long-term complications i.e. chronic pain primarily due to scarring; mesh contraction, muscle contortion and secondary nerve entrapment.

Drs. Miklos and Moore have:

• Written the largest paper in the WORLD on mesh removal ~ with more than 500 pieces of mesh removed in 3 years

• Removed more than 800 pieces of mesh in their careers
• Completely removed full pieces of mesh in patients with:
TVT Slings ~ TOT Slings ~ Single Incision Slings ~ Sacrocolpopexy

Drs. Miklos and Moore are arguably the most experienced mesh removal surgeons in the world. Dr. Miklos and Dr. Moore have developed surgical techniques that allow them to successfully remove full pieces of vaginal mesh in patients that have been told by other surgeons, “it cannot be done”.

“If I could, I would hug Dr. Miklos. My body is at peace again. The sensation and pain from the mesh is gone. I want to personally Thank Dr. Miklos for his patience and hard work and for taking his time to fix me.”

Drs. Miklos and Moore won the internationally coveted 2014 Golden Laparoscope Award with their amazing video of a vaginal and laparoscopic TVT retropubic sling removal, which entrapped the obturator nerve.

They are internationally recognized leaders in mesh removal and have been invited to teach their technique by societies such as: International Urogynecology Association (IUGA), American Urogynecology Association (AUGS) and the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL).

The Internationally Syndicated, Doctor’s TV show, showcased their expertise by discussing the complications associated with vaginal mesh implants and how highly technical and difficult the removal procedure can be.

“Dear Dr. Moore, I wanted to Thank You to let you know how much I appreciate everything you were able to accomplish for me in surgery! And that I think you’re AMAZING!! I will continue to work towards and hope for complete recovery and success on this end. Your skills were definitely seen in the report and I’m so thankful I chose to come to Georgia. I feel lucky to have found you!! Amazing things can happen.”

Tell me more about Mesh Complications?

Mesh is a commonly used material in pelvic floor surgery for both urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. Mesh has been proven to have higher cure rates than using the patients own tissue that has already failed, however it takes a specialist with extra years of training and an expertise in vaginal reconstruction to decide on its appropriate use. In 2011, the FDA released a statement concerning the complications that have been reported about vaginal mesh. The FDA did not take the mesh off of the market, nor did they recall the mesh. They were simply disclosing that complications concerning the placement of mesh vaginally for prolapse had been reported to the FDA and surgeons and patients needed to be aware. It is important to know that mesh slings and mesh placed abdominally (i.e. Sacrocolpopexy and Hysteropexy) were not included in this notification.
