As a Phasix Mesh specialist, Dr Mastakov performs hernia repair surgery that optimizes patients’ outcomes.
Hernia repair is one of two main areas of specialisation at our practice. We stay up to date with the latest research and developments in repairing all types of hernia. We firmly believe that you need a Phasix Mesh specialist for all hernia surgery.
What is Phasix Mesh?
It is important to note that there are different types of mesh that surgeons have been – and are still – using for hernia repair, including polypropylene mesh, etc.
Phasix Mesh is a far superior mesh for hernia repair. It is a high quality medical device that delivers a wealth of benefits for our patients. Phasix Mesh delivers both the strength of synthetic mesh as well as the remodelling properties of a biological graft. It’s an absorbable mesh that provides the best of both worlds.
What are the benefits of being treated by a Phasix Mesh specialist?
Because we utilise the latest developments in hernia surgery, you will benefit in several ways:
- hernia surgery is now less invasive
- recovery time is significantly shorter
- hernia recurrences are far less likely
Because it is fully resorbable, Phasix Mesh is our preferred choice of material for mesh repairs. It has less surface area and fewer niches compared to other types of mesh, reducing the chances of a mesh infection. It allows your natural tissues to be incorporated far quicker than other absorbable meshes. In addition, Phasix Mesh provides more strength in the weeks and months following surgery.
What can you expect from hernia repair surgery?
Not all patients are the same. We will examine each patient, and devise a tailored treatment plan based on their anatomy and type or types of hernia. Whether you need laparoscopic or open hernia repair surgery, we will explain the procedure in full and answer any questions or concerns you might have.
We operate in order to improve our patients’ quality of life and reduce recurrence rates. Traditionally, hernia repair surgery focused solely on the affected area. However, recent research proves that the function of the entire abdominal wall must be addressed for best results. Therefore, Dr Mastakov uses the latest techniques to preserve and realign the abdominal anatomy. This includes: nerves, muscles and blood vessels. In some case, he will perform an entire abdominal wall reconstruction. This includes: restoring the full functionality of the abdominal wall and restoring the midline to support the abdominal muscles.
In order to optimise your recovery, our clinic provides thorough and attentive follow up care.
