Here’s your “Doctor a Day.”
READ ON FOR “A Dose of Hope!”
If you live in or around the Cincinnati area, please be aware that this doctor is recruiting new patients for a prospective cohort study which would include the implant of NEW WOMEN with Coloplast’s Restorelle Direct Fix for repair of POP. Here is the study: Restorelle® Mesh Versus Native Tissue Repair for Prolapse
Please share with any friends and/or family members who live in the area, and please take action, yourself, by calling or emailing the doctor to share with him why you think this study is dangerous, or whatever your personal thoughts may be. We may never know who we’ve helped with a single phone call or email.

A Dose of Hope
I am extraordinarily grateful and humbled to have been accepted and awarded a scholarship to participate in an important patient advocacy workshop next week in Washington, D.C.!
Diana Zuckerman, Ph.D., President of the National Center for Health Research and the Cancer Prevention and Treatment Fund is the workshop’s organizer. Not only does Ms. Zuckerman have a lengthy and impressive career in advocating for patient health and safety; she is also very knowledgeable about mesh and has been speaking out about its risks more than a decade! In fact, she participated in a briefing on Capitol Hill with Dr. Shlomo Raz/UCLA a few years ago.
I am BEYOND GRATEFUL for the scholarship and for this opportunity to learn from, not only Diana, but also her colleagues and the other, 30-or-so, attendees.
The workshop is a two-day learning seminar, and I’m preparing this weekend so I come with a fresh mind, ready to listen and learn. If you have any questions you’d like me to bring up at the workshop, please email me at: themeshwarrior[at]gmail[dot]com or comment on this post with your question.
