Defective Hernia Mesh

There are numerous medical procedures that require the use of mesh to ensure the health and safety of patients. Surgeons are often called upon to use medical-grade mesh to repair various internal damage, including pelvic injuries, chest wall reconstruction and hernia repair. If the mesh is not attached properly or the material itself is faulty, a patient can suffer painful — often catastrophic — injuries.
