A Missouri-based surgeon who specialises in the removal of transvaginal mesh implants will give evidence to MSPs this week.
Dr Dionysios Veronikis had offered to come to Scotland to perform the complex operations on women who are suffering as a result of the implants.
Last month, Dr Veronikis said his offer was “permanently withdrawn” after his relationship with the Scottish Government and health officials broke down.
He will give evidence to Holyrood’s Public Petitions Committee on Thursday as MSPs consider a long-running petition on mesh implants.
The US surgeon withdrew his offer last month, claiming promises to secure sponsorship with the General Medical Council were not fulfilled.
The Scottish Government said there had been “detailed discussions” and he had been offered the opportunity of a contract.
In July, Health Secretary Jeane Freeman announced the NHS is to set up a specialist service to perform mesh removal operations on those women who have been left suffering after surgery.
Committee convener Johann Lamont said: “The petitioners have great faith in the techniques being pioneered by Dr Veronikis and they believe that his work offers an important glimmer of hope for the women whose lives have been scarred by mesh operations’ impact.
“That hope has now been significantly dimmed as a result of the relationship between the Scottish Government, NHS Scotland and Dr Veronikis breaking down.
“We want to hear Dr Veronikis’ views and understand the issues from his perspective, as well as to find out what, if anything, our committee can do to advocate on behalf of the women whose futures potentially hinge on this doctor.”
