Cosmetic Surgery – Vaginal Mesh Implants
Women have been exposed to unacceptable risks through the use of vaginal mesh surgery, the government has acknowledged for the first time, as fresh evidence has revealed that thousands of women have suffered traumatic complications.
In a parliamentary debate on the use of the implants, Jackie Doyle-Price, junior minister at the Department of Health, said it was a “tragedy” that women who had put their trust in the medical establishment had “come out with the most debilitating injuries”.
“These products … should only be used as an extreme measure,” she added. “We should be very concerned by the extent to which these were adopted.”
Previously, the department of health had stated that the benefits of vaginal mesh surgery outweighed the risks.
