  • Inguinal hernia repair with absorbable stitches

    Hi, everyone!

    I'm supposed to have an inguinal hernia repaired in August or September, and my doctor wants to use a mesh, but I won't allow it. I'm here because I want it to be repaired with absorbable stitches, so I'd like to hear opinions on the (original) Bassini vs Desarda techniques. Also, out of curiosity, does anyone know if it's possible to do Shouldice with absorbable stitches?
    I know some people ask, so I'm a female, 23, slightly underweight and my hernia measures 4mm.

    Thank you in advance.

    Hey AGF, yea you definitely don't need mesh but you will likely have to travel to get Non-mesh repair with a competent surgeon. To answer your question there is a guy in Cleavland, OH, Dr. David Grischkan who will perform a partial 2 layer sholdice with absorbable if you request, I will go to him if mine is a direct hernia, I've spoke with him on the phone personally, but am now thinking of going with Dr. Brown since most likely my hernia is an Indirect type and he can perform a more specific technique for that type (marcy repair). I get an Ultrasound tomorrow and hope that I can get an answer.

      Look up William Brown in California, his website has great info on the different kinds of suture repairs and he does not use mesh.
