Hernia Mesh Lawsuits
Hernia repair surgery is a commonly performed surgery aided with the help of surgical grade “hernia mesh.” Every year millions of people have this mesh inserted into their bodies during surgery. The mesh is inserted to provide support to damaged tissues.
Unfortunately the FDA took to recalling defective hernia mesh products over recent years. The side effects and risks of having defective hernia mesh implanted in your body are in some cases life threatening.
Side effects of defective hernia mesh
As state by the FDA defective hernia mesh can unleash the following serious issues:
pain, infection, hernia recurrence, scar-like tissue that sticks tissues together (adhesion), blockage of the large or small intestine (obstruction), bleeding, abnormal connection between organs, vessels, or intestines (fistula), fluid build-up at the surgical site (seroma), and a hole in neighboring tissues or organs (perforation).

FDA Hernia Mesh Recalled
In 2009 the FDA ordered a recall on Atrium C-QUR Mesh as a result of issues related to it’s packaging. Although many cases of defective hernia mesh have been reported the FDA is slow to make recalls on the many products available to surgeons on the market.
How To Begin My Hernia Mesh Lawsuit?
Plaintiffs in hernia mesh lawsuits generally have three simple things in common:
- They had a surgery to repair their hernia and surgical hernia mesh was implanted
- They suffered severe and extreme side effects afterwards including: infection, bleeding, mesh shrinkage, or seroma.
- They experienced suffering and loss as a result.
