What are the Hernia Mesh Lawsuits About?
A hernia mesh is a small net or mesh used by doctors during hernia surgeries to strengthen and support the muscle tissue wall. Due to the frequency of hernia surgeries, thousands of these mesh implants are employed every year. Lawsuits primarily focus on permanent hernia mesh implants, distinct from dissolvable mesh. Permanent mesh is designed to remain in the body indefinitely after implantation, unlike dissolvable mesh. Unfortunately, some permanent hernia mesh implants exhibited design flaws, leading to severe complications after implantation.
