Cutter Law P.C.


Hernia mesh is a medical device that is used to support and reinforce weakened tissues and organs in the body. It is also used to treat hernias. Hundreds of thousands of surgeries using hernia mesh are performed every in the United States.

Unfortunately, some hernia mesh products are defective and can cause serious complications.

What, exactly, can go wrong when defective hernia mesh is used?

According to the FDA, the most common complications are:

  • Pain
  • Infection
  • Recurrence of hernia
  • Adhesion: The development of scar-like tissue that causes tissues to stick together
  • Bowel obstruction: Intestinal blockage

Other complications can occur when defective hernia mesh migrates (moves within the body) or shrinks.

Symptoms: Patients should be aware of warning signs such as pain and soreness around the surgical site, bloating, formation of a lump in the area of the hernia, nausea, vomiting, and fever. If any of these symptoms or others appear, the patient should seek immediate medical attention.

Many hernia mesh products have been recalled. If you wish to find out what type of hernia mesh was used in your surgery, you should contact your surgeon or the facility that performed the surgery.

If you are experiencing complications after surgery using hernia mesh, you may be eligible for significant compensation. It is important to take prompt action.
