Miami Hernia Mesh Lawyer
Hernia mesh is used in surgical repair of hernias to provide support to the affected area as it heals, with an intent of preventing further tears in that location. Hernia mesh is used in 90 percent of hernia repairs, according to Drug Watch. For some, hernia mesh ends up working in the long term. For many others, unfortunately, hernia mesh not only fails to solve the original problem, but causes serious health concerns of its own, including bowel obstruction, organ perforation, and long term chronic pain. Various brands of hernia mesh have been recalled and have been off the market for years, though patients are still suffering the consequences of these faulty products. Other brands of hernia mesh that are causing bowel obstruction and organ perforation are still being used to this day. If you have experienced a devastating injury such as organ perforation, hernia recurrence, bowel obstruction, or chronic pain, you have the right to file a lawsuit with the responsible manufacturer. Our experienced Miami hernia mesh lawyers here at Spencer Morgan Law can help you get started as soon as you are ready.

Unintended Complications of Defective Hernia Mesh Products
Defective hernia mesh can result in extreme pain, discomfort, hernia recurrence, and worse. Below are some of the common disastrous side effects of defective hernia mesh products:
- Hernia recurrence
- Hernia mesh migration to other areas of the body;
- Hernia mesh shrinkage;
- Adhesion of the hernia mesh;
- Bowel obstruction; and
- Organ perforation.
One third of hernia mesh patients experience a complication, according to Drug Watch. Pain is the most common side effect. The most serious are bowel obstruction, and organ perforation, which can cause permanent damage to organs, and can be fatal. Organ perforation occurs when the mesh is placed incorrectly or the mesh is defective, rubbing or poking a hole into nearby tissue or organs. Common organs that become damaged due to mesh perforation include the bladder, lower intestines, urinary tract, and rectum. If blood vessels are perforated, internal bleeding can become life threatening.
