What is a Hernia Mesh?
A hernia is a medical condition that occurs when an organ (such as an intestine) protrudes through surrounding connective tissue or muscle. To treat a Hernia, some doctors will prescribe surgery to implant a mesh in an attempt to reinforce the surrounding.
What are the side effects of a Mesh?
Sadly, many of these hernia mesh implants have caused more problems than they solve and have lead to infections, hernia recurrence, and even more surgeries. We are specifically looking for injuries like dense adhesions, chronic infections, ingrowth, bowel obstruction, pain, hernia recurrence, and seroma, skin rash, and abscess.
