Hernia Mesh Injury Attorneys
Hernia mesh is 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 1880’s, but the use of hernia mesh did not become standard until the 1990’s. Unfortunately, many hernia mesh products are defective, and some have been withdrawn from the market.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.
