The best mesh suitable for your mother will be used by any surgeon. So I don't bother about which mesh should be used. As many factors decide the type of mesh. Laparoscopic repair will be best and dual mesh will be used in that.

Laparoscopic mesh repair is ideal one. Regarding mesh you have to trust the surgeon. They will use dual mesh which is recommended.
