Over one million hernia repair surgeries are performed each year, many of which use hernia mesh. Hernia mesh is a specific mesh medical device, engineered to support and hold organs in place after surgery. There are three types of hernia mesh categories: synthetic, composite or biologic.


Recent numbers have shown that one out of every three patients report chronic pain or other complications after hernia repair surgery. Defective hernia mesh devices seem to be the cause of many injuries, including:


  • Hernia recurrence

  • Abdominal or groin pain

  • Mesh migration

  • Mesh erosion

  • Mesh shrinkage

  • Mesh hardening

  • Mesh folding

  • Extrusion of mesh device

  • Failure to adhere

  • Liver injury

  • Autoimmune injury

  • Organ perforation

  • Infection

  • Chronic open wound

  • Delayed wound closure

  • Seroma (build-up of fluid at the site of surgery)

  • Fistula (unusual and painful connections between organs and tissue)

  • Adhesions (abnormal tissue connections due to infection or injury)

  • Rash

  • Nerve damage


Hernia mesh is a foreign object, made of foreign materials that is inserted into a body during surgical procedures. If the device is not designed and manufactured properly, a body can reject the mesh, causing serious health complications. Hernia mesh rejection symptoms include:


  • Fever

  • Nausea

  • Vomiting

  • Acute and severe pain in the abdomen

  • Lightheadedness

  • Fainting

  • Loss of consciousness

  • Sexual dysfunction

  • Pain during sex

  • Renal failure


Several hernia mesh products have been recalled. The lawsuit claims that the manufacturers did not warn the public of the known issues, risks and hazards of the hernia mesh devices. Consequently, many have suffered as a result of the manufacturers’ omissions.
