Monash University and the CSIRO are currently researching this problem, with two promising lines of inquiry. They are looking at creating a mesh that has better properties, and also considering using stem cells to help the body accept the mesh when it is implanted.
Good luck to the research team - hopefully we will all be benefiting from their success before long!
