Pelvic Mesh Malfunctions

Thousands of vaginal pelvic mesh implant procedures are performed each year across the United States.  Surgical vaginal pelvic mesh implant procedures are used in women in order to repair the structures that support the bladder, uterus, and bowel when they become so weak that the organs drop from their normal position and prolapse into the pelvis.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently determined there are too many unnecessary risks associated with the transvaginal mesh procedure and have begun to warn surgeons against performing the procedure.  The complications from the unnecessary risks are painful and may be permanent and complete removal may not be possible.

Problems related to surgical mesh could result in a medical malpractice case and/or a products liability case.  Your team at Wocl Leydon can help you determine which applies to your situation and what legal remedies are available to you.
