Hernia Mesh Treatment Claims

Tens of thousands of people with hernias are treated annually using mesh, however it is becoming clear that there is a real risk of severe and debilitating pain caused by the mesh

This fine mesh is put in place by surgeons to hold in the bulging internal tissues and acts as a muscle wall

Hernia’s occur with most prevalence in the groin, and are also common in the abdomen. A fine mesh is often used to treat hernia’s in the UK, it is NHS England’s recommended treatment. A hernia occurs when there are gaps in the muscles causing internal tissues to bulge out.

This fine mesh is put in place by surgeons to hold in the bulging internal tissues and acts as a muscle wall (this treatment is also commonly used to treat vaginal prolapse).

There has been a huge surge in patients reporting problems and complications with this method of treatment. The BBC have covered this issue, with many patients complaining of excruciating pain caused by the treatment*. There is now a growing group of individuals coming forward who have faced similar problems with their hernia treatments.

Tens of thousands of people with hernias are treated using this method in the UK every year; however it is becoming clear that, as with the vaginal prolapse surgeries, there is a risk of severe and debilitating pain caused by mesh abrasion – something that healthcare professionals in the UK have been failing to warn patients about.

Our team of highly trained Medical Negligence professionals can help you get back on your feet after the performance of negligent mesh surgery, and with our vital AvMA (the charity for patient safety and justice) accreditation you can rest assured that you are in good hands. If you have been affected, or if you are concerned that you might face complications from a mesh surgery in the future then don’t hesitate to get in touch.
