Melbourne Urogynaecology (Dr Yik N Lim) - Female Urinary Incontinence & Pelvic Floor Repair
Controversies about surgical implants in the form of slings and meshes have dominated media coverage in recent years. We like our patients to be well informed so they can participate in shared decision making about their own health. Often the first port of call for information is the internet. Unfortunately this can often lead to misinformation if the information is obtained from the wrong websites. Below are some links to not for profit websites that we find useful to educate our patients. It is by no means exhaustive.
