If the doctors can no longer use mesh how will they fix my pelvic organ prolapse?

In brief: Other methods

Some mesh surgery is still available.
Some companies have abandoned their mesh products because of the generally unfair negative publicity. Bad outcomes in most mesh surgeries are related to surgeon inexperience and poor patient selection, not an inherently bad product. Long before mesh was available there were and still are non-mesh surgical alternatives using conventional sutures.

In brief: Many options

Most of the issues that are being discussed in the media are related to vaginal placed pelvic floor mesh.
Native tissue repair, biologic implants and abdominally repairs are all options. Additionally, in the right patient with an experienced surgeon vaginally placed mesh products remain a viable option.
