Hernia mesh is a surgical mesh used to add strength to weak tissue in hernia repair surgeries with the purpose of reducing the risk that the hernia will come back. Hernia repair surgery has been performed since the late 1880s, but the use of hernia mesh did not become standard until the 1990s. Unfortunately, many hernia mesh products are defective, and some have been withdrawn from the market. There are many types of hernia mesh and several manufacturers. If you have experienced complications or side effects after hernia mesh surgery or required subsequent surgeries, defective hernia mesh may be the cause. You may be able to recover compensation for your medical expenses, pain and suffering, and other harm that you have suffered.
