Mesh is a commonly used material in pelvic floor surgery for both urinary incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse. The use of mesh, according to the FDA, is still considered standard of care in certain procedures (Sling, Sacrocolpopexy and Hysteropexy) but transvaginal meshes for prolapse have come under scrutiny. Complications can occur with any incontinence or prolapse surgery, however, prolapse and incontinence procedures using mesh can have more severe complications and be much more difficult to manage.

My experience was amazing from the moment we walked in the door and was so warmly greeted, to getting released from the hospital we were treated so, so great! I have never had a consultation with a doctor for 2 1/2 hours, let alone with 3 doctors of their caliber. They asked so many questions and then they would discuss with all 3 of them. I was told by my urogynecologist and pelvic pain specialist that I had nerve damage, scar tissue and adhesions that was causing my extreme pain. I had my transvaginal mesh taken out in October 2016. Dr. Miklos and Dr. Lemos found after my thorough examination that the 4 arms of the mesh needed to be removed. I didn’t even know the arms were there, I just knew I couldn’t go on with the extreme pain I was having. After a long surgery having them removed and my pelvic floor was shot with Botox, I could tell within a couple days that I was better! I was still very sore, but it was from the surgery, not the mesh! We are so grateful to Dr. Miklos and Dr. Lemos for giving me my life back!! I would recommend this whole practice to anyone with mesh complications, and I will never trust any other doctor to do any further procedures, if needed. Why would I ever settle for less than the best? A huge THANK YOU to your entire staff! You all are the very best at what you do.
Dr. Moore, I wanted you to know that you saved my life, I feel so much better now after surgery. I can already see the difference 3 weeks post-operative. Thank you!
Just wanted to say that I have spent a great deal of time looking for a doctor that I felt I could trust after having mesh erosions. I found that doctor in Dr. Moore.
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”.
