With the use of Intergel not being approved by the FDA due to an increased number of infections...would it not be wise for us to wait until they have corrected that problem. I have had a problem with surgical infections and they are not fun....I would not want to undergo any procedue that has a greater risk of infection as one of its side effects. Just my thoughts.


surgery by surgeons from the following countries: >
