Our Vaginal Mesh Lawyers Are Reviewing Cases Nationwide

Thousands of women suffer from pelvic organ prolapse (POP) during childbirth or pregnancy. Others may find themselves suffering from stress urinary incontinence in which the body leaks urine during stressful times. Surgeons use transvaginal mesh as a way to treat these conditions, inserting the devices through an incision and attaching them or implanting them to the wall in the vagina.

While vaginal mesh implantation is typically a routine procedure, many women are suffering from complications resulting from the device itself including urinary tract issues, infections, pain, bleeding at the mesh site and local organ damage. If women experience injuries, a removal surgery is often required, a process that may involve numerous surgeries and repair of the prolapse. These treatments may be expensive, painful, time-consuming and risky.

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a safety advisory acknowledging several transvaginal mesh brands and styles. Women who have experienced complications are entitled to seek compensation for lost wages, pain, suffering and relevant and reoccurring medical expenses. The last thing a patient needs to hear is that she is suffering from additional complications that occurred as the result of a defective product; professional transvaginal mesh lawyers can help to sort out the questions that may arise during the legal process.
