Mr Ash Monga talks on Radio 4’s award winning investigative series Face the Facts

Mr Ash Monga, Consultant Gynaecologist at Gynaechoice, spoke recently as part of Radio 4’s award winning investigative series Face the Facts.   Along with other specialists Mr Monga talked openly to Radio 4 presenter John Waite on the subject of tougher safety rules for new medical devices in vaginal surgery.  

With some women reporting complications from vaginal mesh surgery, concerned surgeons say a compulsory register for all devices is long overdue in order to track success and failure.  But might insisting on too rigorous a testing regime have the unintended consequence of stifling medical innovation and making it too expensive for all but the biggest companies.
