Inventory Management

Many suppliers of hernia mesh chose to offer mesh in a dizzying array of configurations which can lead to OR staff confusion and unnecessary supply area clutter. BG Medical, in offering the unique SURGIMESH® hernia mesh platform, has chosen to simplify its offerings so the number of hernia mesh configurations used can be reduced by up to 90% and be less confusing for staff to work with — no left and right configurations or confusing range of barrier mesh designs.
