WHAT IS HERNIA MESH?
Hernia or abdominal mesh, also referred to as a hernia patch or screen, is a product commonly used by surgeons to repair hernias. The surgical mesh is placed either under or over the defect in the abdominal wall and held in place by stitches.
HERNIA MESH RECALL AND LAWSUIT INFORMATION
In May 2016, Johnson & Johnson's subsidiary Ethicon voluntarily recalled its Physiomesh Flexible Composite Mesh product due to an increased risk of side effects. Research studies had found higher rates of hernia recurrence and re-opening compared to similar abdominal mesh products used in hernia repair. If you or a loved one had hernia repair surgery between 2010 and 2016 and then suffered serious complications, you may be eligible for financial compensation from the manufacturer.
