SURGIMESH Surgical Implants

Mission Trips

BG Medical considers it our duty to support those who so generously give of their time and expertise in helping the unfortunate in need of surgical repair with donations of hernia mesh.

To arrange for hernia mesh for a Mission Trip please contact your local SURGIMESH® Territory Manager or call 800-390-4716. You will need to provide details on the mission trip such as names of the key surgical personnel, date(s), location(s) of the trip and the supporting organization for the Mission Trip. Below are several examples of very successful Mission Trips where BG Medical made hernia mesh donations.
