Rectopexy is performed to deal with external rectal prolapse. The procedure is also used to treat rectocele prolapse in women where the bowel bulges into the vagina.
Mesh rectopexy is a form of the procedure that uses surgical mesh to hold the prolapse in place. When the mesh procedure was initially introduced it was presented as an improved alternative to other types of prolapse repair. However, the use of mesh has led to a number of serious health issues for patients who have received it.
Problems with rectopexy mesh have arisen where the mesh itself has moved position following surgery. There have also been instances of mesh being incorrectly fitted and cases where patients were not warned about the risks of undergoing mesh rectopexy.
If you have had this procedure carried out and suffered excruciating pain and discomfort as a result, then speak to rectopexy solicitor Caroline Webber-Brown.
