Hernia Mesh Lawyer
Surgical mesh is frequently used by surgeons in a hernia repair procedure. It is manufactured from a woven plastic-like material, or animal tissue. The mesh is placed over the bulge or tear in a weakened area of the abdominal muscles, and permanently affixed.
Hernia mesh is an effective method of preventing hernia reoccurrence by placing a barrier in damaged muscle walls, preventing the organs from pushing through the weakened muscles. Hundreds of thousands of people have undergone surgery for hernia repair, and a large percentage of these patients have had hernia mesh implanted during the procedure.
Serious Complications from Hernia Mesh
Unfortunately for many patients, the type of mesh used in a surgical hernia repair has led to serious complications including:
- Postoperative hematoma (blood leaking into tissues from damaged blood vessel wall)
- Organ perforation
- Mesh erosion
- Chronic abdominal pain
- Mesh rejection
- Nerve damage
- Bowel obstructions
- Mesh migration
