Because so many women have discovered Dr. Shlomo Raz at UCLA, who is perhaps the best at mesh removal surgery in the world, he is backed up for six months. Many women simply cannot wait. Teapapers blog talks to these women almost every day and write on her blog about those conversations.

    An alternative is Dr. Twiss at U of A in Tucson. He studied under Raz. Just had explant performed by him 2 weeks agon (after prior failures but other Dr’s) and am already feeling better – it will be slow going but I know have HOPE – something that was missing for a long time for me.

We hope you find this a helpful resource. National News Editor, Jane Akre, began MDND with the hope of providing the latest news, information and perspective from the regulatory, industry and patient point of view, something that goes under-reported in much of the coverage of medical devices. The public is just now becoming aware that many devices do not undergo the same scrutiny as prescription drugs and are instead grandfathered in under an FDA loophole that has gone largely unchanged since the 1970s. As a result, patients become the post-market clinical trial subjects, and many suffer devastating and permanent injuries.
