I had a very difficult mesh removal with 2 perforated small intestine loops and multiple adhesions as well. It has been about 4 months and everything has worked out well. His staff was excellent. He operated with a plastic surgeon Dr. Kathju who was also excellent. Dr. Medich can come off a as being brusk, but he tells you about your condition straight up. He does have a sense of humor and appreciates it if you can be brusk in return.
