Since the 1980s, doctors have been using surgical mesh as the primary way to treat groin hernias. In recent years, though, thousands of patients have suffered devastating complications due to hernia surgical mesh defects.
According to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, defective hernia mesh implants can cause infections, adhesions, blockages, fistulas, seromas, perforations, and hernia recurrence. Patients who suffer these complications often have to undergo additional surgeries, which may result in further health issues.
If you or someone in your family has suffered complications due to a defective hernia mesh implant, contact Coxwell & Associates. The manufacturer of the implant may be liable for your medical expenses, lost income, and other damages.
