A St. Louis surgeon at Mercy Hospital St. Louis in Creve Coeur has gained a positive reputation among women who have visited him for transvaginal mesh removal surgery. The surgeon, Dr. Dionysios Veronikis, or Dr. V, as he is called by his patients, has seen women from all over the world.
As detailed in a recent St. Louis Post-Dispatch article, Dr. V’s patients have endured an incredible amount of pain as a result of their transvaginal mesh implants. For many women, this pain has altered their lives to the point where their movement became extremely limited, leading to a poor quality of life.
One of the women interviewed for the article described receiving a transvaginal mesh implant to treat stress urinary incontinence (SUI). Though the implant solved her incontinence, it brought a new, and arguably, much worse health problem. The woman described being in severe pain doing any kind of movement. Continuing to live her life with the mesh was no longer an option for her, so she began her search for someone who could successfully remove it.
The woman flew to the U.S. from Australia, underwent the removal surgery, and thankfully, reported being pain-free following the surgery.
Severe pain is one of many transvaginal mesh side effects. Others include bleeding, organ damage, infection, painful intercourse, and urinary problems.
Thanks to Dr. V, many of the women who have been injured by transvaginal mesh can go back to enjoying life.
