Injured After Receiving a Surgical Mesh or Transvaginal Mesh Implant?

Surgeries to treat pelvic organ prolapse, hernias and bladder stress often involve the use of surgical mesh. This mesh is generally used to strengthen weakened tissue in certain areas of the body after injury or pregnancy. Surgeries using surgical mesh patches and systems are meant to allow patients to maintain the same quality of life they had before they were injured.

But that is not always the case because sometimes the surgical mesh is poorly made or designed. A rising number of patients who have received transvaginal surgical mesh, hernia repair patches or sling systems are reporting painful medical complications.

If you or a loved one has received surgical mesh and is experiencing increased pain and discomfort, the implant may be defective. We can help.

How Do You Know if You Have a Surgical Mesh Injury?

In addition to general increased pain, symptoms of a transvaginal surgical mesh injury include protrusion of the mesh, infection, bleeding, pain during intercourse and vaginal scarring or shrinking.
