FDA Approves TiMESH, a Revolutionary New Device for Hernia Repair

Abstract:
GP Surgical, a Nashville-based distributor of medical products, today announced the recent FDA approval of TiMESH, a revolutionary, new mesh device for hernia repair. TiMESH is the only composite hernia mesh made with titanium, offering U.S. surgeons and patients one of the most innovative and reliable new treatment options for the most common surgical procedure in America. Cutting-edge nanotechnology is used to develop TiMESH with its ideal surgical mesh properties, including biocompatibility, resistance to infection and the ability to be recognized by the body as a solid titanium implant.
