Hernias can be exceedingly painful. When someone has a hernia, the tissue walls that hold internal organs in place, have weakened allowing an organ or portion of an organ to become displaced into another body cavity.
Many of the world’s largest manufacturers of medical devices and pharmaceuticals have manufactured hernia mesh products intended to strengthen the walls of internal tissues that typically hold our internal organs in place. Unfortunately, the application of these hernia mesh products have proven problematic, to say the least. Hernia mesh products have been recalled or are failing at rates higher than expected. The failures are causing men and women to undergo additional surgeries, infections, bowel obstructions, organ damage, scar tissue and chronic pain. Thousands of hernia mesh lawsuits have been filed across the nation.
