Hernia patient can continue active life with nano-enhanced device

Abstract:
An avid swimmer, bicyclist and weightlifter, Bruce Baughman strives for strength and flexibility. As he recovers from hernia surgery, he's grateful that a new medical device is designed to offer both benefits. Baughman, of Sarasota, Fla., was among the first people in the United States to receive TiMESH, a nano-enhanced mesh device for hernia surgery developed in Germany. The "Ti" stands for titanium, which forms a 30-nanometer thick coating on a standard plastic mesh implanted to repair damaged tissue.
