Strong Representation For Victims Of Hernia Mesh Injuries

Hernia mesh is a surgical implant product that is used to strengthen damaged tissue in repairing a hernia. The original medical device was developed in an effort to reduce the high rate of recurrence of hernia, according to the Food and Drug Administration. Each year, surgeons use hernia mesh implants in roughly 500,000 surgical procedures across the United States. Unfortunately, far too often, patients suffer serious side effects from the device. Moreover, use of the device does not always protect against hernia recurrence.

Often the synthetic material used to manufacture the mesh or compounds used to coat the product can cause allergic reactions in some patients. The materials may migrate through the body, leading to obstructions in the large intestine, the small intestine or the bowel. The material can fail outright, leading to the need for corrective surgery and additional pain. Many patients who have relied on the mesh to correct the medical problem suffer significant additional pain, complications and the need for additional surgeries to repair the damage from the defective medical device.
