  • Question for dr. Brown

    Hi. Are there surgeons out there that you know if and can recommmed (besides yourself ofcourse)who specialize in non mesh repairs?
    Many people come to this forum looking for alternatives to mesh repairs and there are only a few known for doing primarily non mesh repairs and specializing in this practice. Any names that you know of who you can vouch for would be great.
    Many people end up having to travel for a pure tissue repair (Canada, Florida and CA) if there are other surgeons out there to add to the list would be very Valuable

    I'm in Texas and am in the "watchful waiting" period. But when the time does come I am definitely going no mesh. I'm considering Dr. Brown or Dr. Tomas in Fla.

    You would think that there would be someone in Texas. With UT, Houston, San Antonio and Dallas you would imagine there would be at least 1 very good no mesh doctor. It seems that is not the case.

      In Texas, you might try contacting Dr. John Etlinger in San Antonio, who apparently does a non-mesh repair on select hernia patients.

      I am also very interested in the idea of maintaining a list of hernia surgeons who are able, willing, and competent at non-mesh hernia repairs. It's increasingly difficult to find these surgeons and typically patients must travel far, often out of state, out of insurance networks, or even out of country (like a recent US Senator) to get a non-mesh repair.

          Dr. Brown is a Boss. He would do his own surgery.....without anesthesia.
