Often, Complications After Hernia Surgery Could Have Been Prevented

We’ll Help You Determine If You Have A Malpractice Claim

Oftentimes, hernias are repaired using patches or mesh. There are risks of these patches breaking during or after the procedure which could cause serious harm or even death. In addition, some defective meshes on the market may cause abdominal or even bowel perforation which could lead to serious infection or even death.

It is not uncommon for patients to be unaware their hernias were repaired with defective or recalled hernia mesh. Breakage or perforation of the mesh may include:

  • Fever
  • Nausea or diarrhea
  • Abdominal pain or tightness

If you have had a hernia repair and are experiencing these or similar symptoms, contact your physician. There are ways for your physician to determine if your symptoms are being caused by the hernia mesh.

If you or a loved one has experienced harm or complications after a hernia repair, you may need to contact a lawyer. Our office co-counsels with experienced lawyers all over the United States to ensure that you are entitled to money damages as a result of your harm.
