Doctors and surgeons rely on a variety of medical devices and other products to support them during surgical procedures and routine checkups. While many of those products serve their purposes without adverse effects, not all of them are safe for patients. In fact, some may cause more harm than good, resulting in worsening health complications and additional operations for many patients.
One of those dangerous products is hernia mesh. This loosely woven material is used to reinforce the muscle wall and hold internal organs in place during surgeries. Thousands of patients have reported severe complications after receiving hernia mesh implants, including:
- Mesh breakage or failure
- Allergic reaction
- Migration of mesh
- Organ perforation
- Bowel obstruction
- Hernia recurrence
